But how do you even compare Callahan's situation to Staal's, when Staal has missed over half the games the past two seasons?

Forget it, I vote Stepan.

P.S. I don't mean for any of this to sound hostile, at all, I'm just trying to understand other posters views on this.
Clearly I was using a ridiculous example to make a point. Could Staal never return or regain his form? Sure. But I think it's silly to say that McDonah is better AIAEC, when the comparison is to a Staal that's not playing.

And there's no hostility....these polls are meaningless anyway.
