Jordan Staal has not had the kind of season he, or Carolina management had envisioned when he signed a 10-year, $60 million contract extension in the summer.

Staal has registered only 24 points in 40 games, which is similar to his production as a third-line center in Pittsburgh to his arrival in Carolina. Initially, Staal clicked with Jeff Sknner on the Canes' second line but since Skinner sustained a concussion, both he and Staal have been relatively inefective. For those of you who drafted Staal in keeper pools, you reasonably may expect him to increase his offensive output next season.
