"Maybe in the next few days we’ll have an update on what the timetable will be for that."The loss of Staal long-term would be a major blow to a Penguins team already without forward Sidney Crosby and defenseman Kris Letang, both of whom are dealing with concussion symptoms.Staal, 23, has 15 goals and six assists in 34 games.
