Jon - agree totally, and I think that's where he will be. He seems as though he still may have a ways to go.
I think he does, too. Personally, I want them to be as careful with Staal as they can possibly be. He's our top prospect and he can be an absolutely ELITE defenseman if he's handled right and let develop. A few cups of coffee next year would be perfect for him, IMO. Give him 2 games here, 3 games there and spend the rest of the year in the AHL. Even the year after I'd be fine with them doing that. I think he'll debut here around the age of 22 or 23 as a full time player.
