Fellas,I wanted to get your opinion so far..I have only seen 2 Canes games so far this year and I'm a big fan of E.Staal..I have noticed that his numbers seem to be down some..Has his play slipped at all so far this year? Just wondering if he's struggled at all or has he played as well this year as he did last??
Very inconsistent, went through a stretch where he was clearly pressing, squezing it and missing chgances he nailed last year. Even so, his numbers aren't awful. Some defensive lapses too, but MUCH better in the faceoff circle.
I'm optimistic he'll catch fire soon. It's an overused line, but he's one of our guys who look like they're still coming down off of last year's high mentally.
