Staal Best Player so Far This Year

A couple days ago, I noted that Eric Staal was off to a very good start. Since then, he has been even better. In his two games since then, Staal scored a hat trick versus Philadelphia and four assists versus Pittsburgh. Staal now has 22 points in his 11 games played. He is only nine points short of his point total in 2003-04. He leads the NHL in scoring by four points over Jaromir Jagr. I would be suprised if Staal keeps going at this rate (I am suprised already!), but I am ready to declare that Eric Staal has been the best player in the NHL so far this year. Earlier this year, I picked Simon Gagne as the best position player in the NHL. Staal has well surpassed him.

Cool blog, interesting information... Keep it UP »
