My gut tells me that because he's 20, he'll get an automatic pass to Hartford to be seasoned, but in all honesty, there are 20 year old defensemen in this league and there and there isn't ay reason why Staal shouldn't have an opportunity to be one also.
Which 18-20 year old dmen are currently playing in this league? Not doubting you, but I can't think of any off the top of my head and I'm curious who you're referring to.
