Do you even know how many of those points were HUGE game & series changing/winning goals... A TON!
Well, not sure about series changing goals, since I can't find a way to search for that, however, I can answer how many have been game winning goals, which is one of the criteria you mentioned...exactly 2 goals in 73 career playoff games. Doesn't really count as 'beastly' to me.
I think its safe to say Staalsy wants out or won't sign a LTD. Just the fact that he said he liked it when Sid was out speaks a lot. He's definitely a #1 Center on any team in the League and I think he wants to show the world he can be that guy. He wants to play at the World Championships, but I have the feeling he wants to prove to everybody that he can make the 2014 Olympic team. Sounds selfish, I know, but he is very well capable of doing so, just not on the Penguins. I say he signs a 2 year deal max or he gets traded at the deadline(very latest). Its sad to say but he is too good to be on this team as a 3rd line center.
I watched the interview from yesterday and it seems like he's holding something back. He just wanted to be politically correct so don't completely quote him on what he said.
So by that statement, you're saying he's the best center in hockey?
