Staal is not a future top-line player, but he IS a future top-pairing defenseman. And those are always hard to come by. By no means am I comparing the talent level of Malkin to that of Staal, however it should be noted that Malkin (along with virtually every other top prospect) were awfull quiet whenever Stall was on the ice during the WJC. Must be something to him.

No doubt that Crosby is Crosby, Ovechkin is Ovechnkin & Phaneuf is Phaneuf. However, Staal is currently looking mighty fine, whatever his top-end talent might be.
