How Much Is Jordan Staal Worth

from Seth Rorabaugh of Empty Netters,

Which brings us to Jordan Staal who, according to rumors, is related to Eric in some fashion.

He’s a restricted free agent after this season. How does he get his first big pay day?

Does he need to hit the 30 goal/60 point mark? Does he essentially need to be Ryan Malone’s replacement on one of the first two lines? Does he need to ride shotgun on the wing of Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin? Does he need continue his sterling defensive play?

If you ask us, the answer is yes to all these questions. This is why we expect a big season out of Staal.

from Kevn Allen of Mucking & Grinding,

Staal said he understands why Therrien plays him on the third line, “he believes it’s a better fit at center for me and we were winning games.”

  He hasn’t even talked to Therrien about moving up permanently to the wing. “But for my future I believe I’m a top six guy and I want to play up there,” he said. “I want to fit somewhere in that puzzle. Hopefully I can stick around in Pittsburgh and find a good spot.”
