He clearly doesn't suck.

We had one of the top defenses in the league last year, and he was one of the main reasons why.

He doesn't rack up points like everyone thought he would when he came here, but he is sound in his own end, has a great first pass out of his own end, and doesn't make mistakes.

He's valuable.

People that love him though will point to that one goal for the next 3 weeks as "evidence" that he's actually a really good 1st line Center.

Seriously, it's annoying.

There is a thick line between trying to lure in fans by teaching them and being downright annoying, they are crossing that thick ass line.

I don't think anyone will try and claim he is a first line center. He is a 2nd line center. A very good one at that. He's Rod Brind a'mour...I'll take it.

Who has ever said he is a 1st line center?

Why are the thoughts "Staal provides depth that most NHL teams can't match." and "Staal isn't a top line center." considered mutually exclusive?

Because depth players don't play on your first line, like ever. They add depth. You know, 2nd - 4th line depth. Isn't it pretty obvious?

Why does Steigerwald get so GDamn excited every time a stat is shown about Bob Errey or they show a clip that Errey is in?? He's like a dog that goes nuts when you walk into a room, settles down, then you leave for 10 seconds and walk back in and the dog starts running in circles again.

People expect things from him that just aren't there. Then when he doesn't do those "things", they say, "see, he sucks!"
