I don't really care that he's playing because the season is done and its obviously just a publicity stunt, but I can't help but feel bad for the guys not named Staal who had to play 4-5 pro seasons down in Albany/Charlotte before even getting a sniff of their first nhl game. Not sure I like the message that sends.
Most of them have already gotten a recall this season though. Bowman, Boychuk, Dalpe, Terry, Blanchard, Brett Sutter... the only guy up front that's been around longer that hasn't hit the NHL yet this year is Samson. That's not to say I wouldn't mind seeing Shugg or Pither getting a look eventually either.
