As for Staal, he soff. How mnay times to he get thrown off the puck last night?

How many guys have been sent down and/or called up from WBS in the past 2 seasons? Why hasn't Staal been subjected to the same punishments as the other young players? This guy plays like garbage and he still finds himself on the 2nd or 3rd line every night. How is that fair to the other young players who are trying to make it in the NHL? I'm sick of the special treatment he gets. He may end up being a great player, but until he starts showing a little more he should have less ice time or watch from the press box.
