NHL Needs Eric Staal

from the Rocky Mount Telegram,

Already with far more world experience than normally expected of a guy just 14 months removed from his first legal drink, Staal is fully aware of why he is headed to Dallas in eight days.
“I am not having the year I was having last year, though there is plenty of season left,” Staal said. “I am one of the younger guys that they are probably trying to push in order to promote the league.”
While the move smells like just a bit of desperation by the NHL, it was the right one.
In the collective sporting mind, the NHL is the fifth-place league in a four-league world. This statement has become so much of a fact that there is little reason to answer questions like “How?” and “Why?”
