I ask because I don't know. I don't get to see Staal play (unless he gets to the Memorial Cup) and I am still looking to understand (from those who do get to see him) why he is as highly regrded as he is. Now, I know that people hope the offensive upside for Staal would be higher than what Gratton has done (just as they hoped the same for Gratton). But I'm wondering if he most likely to end up a Gratton type player. And if so, is he worth the top 4 pick? Consider that they are of a similar size and play (so I understand) a good defensive game. And consider their regular season stats from their draft seasons. Both had yet to show big-time offence. Gratton (Kingston): 62 games 27-39-66 (actually the correct stats are 58 55-54-109, as pointed out by others below) Staal (Peterborough): 68 games 28-40-68 I understand that Jordan does not have a strong shot. I'm not sure about Gratton. Comments?
