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.
A guy had a break out season as a 24-25 year old? That's never happened before......

He's not going to shoot 20% again, obviously. He's not going to score 40 goals either. But if he shoots 12% or so, he's scoring 25-30 goals, which is a ton better than a 3rd liner.
