Staals natural spot should be playing shutdown 3rd line center for the Penguins. Up until a couple of years ago he was about the best at it that a player could be. His defensive game has lapsed however. I really do not understand it tbh.

I will say that I was openly calling for Sutter to be the main guy we got in return for a trade for Staal. That has worked out well at least.

I wish Staal the best though. Always thankful to him.

He is still young so Canes fans have no real reason to be upset yet. but someone needs to make him play up to his potential as a shutdown forward. For a couple of years there he looked like the best in the business at it.
