You're right. Staal didn't play until January in 2011/12. Strals pretty much became a regular when Sauer got hurt. That team only played one game with both Sauer and Stralman in the lineup.

It was this at the beginning of the season:

McD-G
MDZ-Sauer
Eminger-Woywitka-Strals

By January, it was:

McD-G
Staal-MDZ
Eminger-Stralman
