EternalCanuckFan Posted November 18, 2021 Share Posted November 18, 2021 Assuming Eric Staal has any interest in playing in Vancouver, I can't see any harm with the Canucks signing him to a 1-year deal. Staal's older now and shouldn't be counted on to provide offence but he has been a responsible 2-way player over his career and is a proven effective NHL center. I don't know if Staal would help the Canucks PK much but he has killed penalties over the course of his career, so he could help in that regard. At the very least, Staal might give the Canucks a proven C who could take some of the burden of faceoffs from Horvat and Miller. Additionally, among many other things the Canucks seem to need, it feels like the Canucks need a veteran leader in the locker room which Staal should be able to provide.
