Meh.

Staal is the better player.

That you watched him one game, and because of that one game viewing, can come to a conclusion otherwise is a bit astonishing to me.

I like that we 'win' a trade as much as anyone, but I always saw Staal as a player who you needed to look closer than at the scoresheet to truly appreciate. He would have looked great on this team for the rest of his career. That became impossible. We got as good as we could given we had no choice. But I am not going to slam him now to feel better about it all.
