The good news is that you have about six or seven months to get back on

Lol this is true. He has an entire season to redeem his pathetic excuse of a game last night. Don't give up on him just yet.

Just be glad that we didn't draft that underachieving, soft, self-centered drama-queen Kessle instead.

Oops - sorry, I'm seven games too late for that bandwagon.

If Satan got dropped to the 3rd line for god knows why?!?!? Staal should be dropped to 4th line duties because of those 2 horrible penalties he took last night!!!

You know how Goligoski is like, so so young? He is three years older than Staal. Consider that fact and a daily dosage of 500mg St. John's Wort and/or Omega 3 fish oils to stabilize your mood and promote a sense of well-being. :lol:

Can Staal be placed in the minors without risk of losing him?

Zigomanis has been playing better than him....and Talbot.

Yes, Staal has a two-way contract.

He can be sent to Wilkes-Barre without risk of losing him

It should happen, if his horrid play continues.

I want this kid to succeed, but he is playing flat out awful.

I think that you scratch him or put him on the 4th line for a game or two and make him think about it. He definitely looks discouraged in a "I can't do anything right" sort of way, and letting him have a game with lowered expectations might help.

Or maybe, who knows, he'll get a goal and it'll go away. I think a few points under his belt and we'll all be saying "wow, what a turn around."

I feel bad for him; poor guy. He's in a contract year and sucks.

I [heart] Talbot but he really hasn't been good so far; not bad but definitely not what I typically expect from him.

Maybe we have a fourth line of: Talbot - Staal - Rico Fata/Konstantin Koltsov, etc and call it the retred line.

Max hasn't been Max, either. Must be the lack of Fu.

Many, many fans here positive that Jordan would do well on the wing. For now, I just want him to concentrate on being a good centerman. Win face-offs, possess & carry the puck with authority...like rookie year.
