Stalberg did nothing to deserve those minutes...

he got PP time and did not produce. It has never mattered who his linemates were. He produced always at the same pace against the weaker teams.

He was never misused, he just isn't more than a speedster with no hockey sense.
He'll do fine with the Preds who will need his speed for the breakaway chances they will get. He fits their style of playing more than the Hawks Puck Possession style. That's why he will succeed with the Preds.
