After a season in which he not only finished seventh in the NHL in points with 100 but led the league in playoff scoring with 28 points in 25 games, Staal's name is mentioned in comparison to the game's elite. In its annual ranking of NHL players, The Hockey News has Staal 14th. "It's more pressure, obviously," Staal said. "I'm humbled to be among those names. Those are phenomenal players on that list.
