Given that, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Staal called up later this season, but only if the team is officially eliminated from the playoffs.
they haven't really done that with any of the real prospects. they have done it with guys like pock, lampman and immonen who imo management doesn't see as part of the long term future. but i don't remember it being done with guys like dubinsky, callahan, korpikoski, baranka, etc.
