Is Staal a bigger part of our team than we thought?



We all know Staal is a huge part of our team and the style of hockey we play. But it was also assumed that the great Penguins machine would keep on churning if he suffered an injury/got traded etc etc.

 

But watching these past two games something seemed off to me and I cant put my finger on it. Now, I am not a statistically inclined fan so if someone would like to dig some of those fancy numbers up to refute my statement or confirm it that would be welcome.

It just looks to me like the son of a sod farmer is more integral to our team than I once believed and I miss the guy.
