I've been through this with NYR homer posters about Staal before. There seems to be a knee-jerk reaction to any hint of criticism or comparison of Staal to someone else. So let's examine what I actually wrote because your reaction is as if I posted something blasphemous.

I wrote "Faulk is not far off from Staal in overall on-ice performance." No go back and look at your hyperbolic, defensive reply. Scroll back through what I already posted on this topic, here and in other Staal threads, and it's clear my opinions are far from those of a homer. Yet your post? Well let's just say even your "facts" are suspect at best.
Faulk is better offensively. That we can all agree on.

Staal is better defensively. Think Suter/Doughty-level good.
