Based on his history, last season was a fluke, he needs to confirm with another strong season, before he can be labelled anything but a 3rd liner.
And i don't want Staal traded period.
His shooting percentage is probably going to come down. So what?

He got 113 shots on goal (actually 117, but he also scored 4 empty net goals). Assuming a shooting % of 13%, that turns into 14.69 goals over 48 games. Which rounds to 25 goals over 82 games.

Is that not top 6 material? That would put him on the same level of goal scoring as players like Jiri Hudler, Valterri Filpulla and Ray Whitney.

This is all assuming that his shooting % comes down to 13% or 12%.
