Jordan Staal

So what are everyone's thoughts on him at this point in time? Worth or not worth the 6M/year? I consider him an elite defensive center. I guess that makes him an elite forward.

He is playing like the guy we traded for, should be making more than his brother..Agree Coastal, that was wasted time.

I posted this in the positive thread: Anyways, if you didn't see it there:

 

 

JORDAN STAAL

 

Despite facing the toughest competition by far, and starting the most times in the defensive zone, by far he:

 

LEADS ENTIRE NHL in FACE OFF % (at least 300 faceoffs): 58.6%. Tops among top 100 face-off takers.

 

LEADS Canes in plus minus at plus 7, (plus 6 in last 5 games).

 

15 points in last 13 games (95 point pace for 82 game season)

20 points in last 23 games (71 point pace for 82 game season)

 

Vast majority of his points even strength.

 

Very nice, but hardly elite wingers on his line. Making them better.

 

The last 23 games, he has not only been worth his salary, but arguably underpaid.

Let's not forget Nordy and Nesty - bottom-six guys in the eyes of many coming into the season.

 

This line is the proof of BP's system: Do your job, expect whoever else is on the ice with you to do theirs, and rest will follow.
