You don't invest all you can into the rest of the team to have it be dependant on a learning curve. Im just as big a fan of Staal's as the next guy, but the "why cant this team let the kids play" is problematic after the offseason signings. Yes the D is the weakest link, and if Marc is ready to contribute, more power to him, but it shouldn't be a given that he makes the team because he's a young up and coming player. If he shows he's ready at camp, Let's Rock, if not, we can wait.
