Because if Stall is as good as tyutin we'll be in pretty good shape.

Most people thought Tyutin would be a 2nd-3rd defenseman, then after last year most people for some reason said a top pairing defenseman was a stretch and pegged him as a solid 3rd or 4th defensman. I think this year he is proving he can be a top pairing dman.

Staal has the potential be a top #2 defenseman. Maybe, a #1 but he would really have to be a unbelievable shutdown Dman to reach that since I don't think he will put up #1 dmen type numbers.

Staal > Tyutin though in terms of potential.
