Found May 02, 2012 on HockeyBuzz:

Speculating Jordan Staal's summer of '12 Jordan Staal scored 25 goals and added 25 assists in 62 games for the Penguins in 2011-12. He missed 15 games with a knee injury sustained Jan. 6 after a knee-on-knee hit with former Pen Mike Rupp. Staal also registered 101 hits, ranking seventh among team forwards. His 16.8 shooting percentage led all Penguins. Starting when Montreal’s P...


Let’s Talk Jordan Staal

via Bob McKenzie tweets, There’s a lot of Jordan Staal talk, where his long-term home is (PIT or elsewhere?). Being a year from UFA means he’s driving the bus. PIT can’t get full market value in trade for J Staal if he’s one and done in the new locale. So Staal ultimately ends up wherever he wants.

Pittsburgh has failed to get out of the...

Richard Cloutier: Johansen, Staal and The Russian Non-Factor

Once in a while when I listen to local sports radio I wonder how the hosts survive their job. There was all sorts of stupid talk in Edmonton on Tuesday regarding Blue Jackets center Ryan Johansen, Pittsburgh's Jordan Staal, and what the "Russian Factor" means to potential Oiler Nail Yakupov. I'll deal with all three separately. Johansen to Oilers Look, I'...

Ian Esplen: 5 Players to Target

Follow me on Twitter for random hockey talk, question and answer sessions, and the odd witty tweet Twitter Buttons Today I would like to look at five players the Canucks should look at and target via trade or free agency between now and the draft. Jordan Staal I've said in the past that Staal would be my biggest priority in the off season if I was the Pens, but if...

Flyers Hot In Philly

from Frank Seravalli of Frequent Flyers, After dispatching the Pittsburgh Penguins in Round 1, the Flyers have captured the city of Philadelphia. Or, at least that’s what the ratings say. We’ve already noted that the NBC ratings for Game 1 against New Jersey on Sunday were up 121 percent from last year’s Game 1 against Boston. But the numbers from Game 2 were truly staggering...
