Staal performs as well as Girardi did. Good year?

The guy he knocked down...

isn't tiny either - he's 6' 200 pounds. Nice hit - that's the difference I want to see in Staal compared to Girardi. In time, I'd like to see less opposing players coming to the net.

that has been a problem in recent years... clearing the net. Staal will help that and i think in a year's time whoever replaces Malik (i dont think he'll stay) will be an upgrade physically. Malik has the wingspan etc but isnt good at clearing the body. Same goes for most of our D.

Staal will help that tremendously, whenever he makes the team...

It's not so much clearing the guys in front of the net...

seems as though the new rules help limit that, but I want a forward to think first before he carries the puck in for a shot. Any thinking a shooter has to do before shooting is beneficial to the defense and goaltender. Clearing the net to the extent it can be would be great, but there are other uses for defensemen around the net.
