Eric & Jordan Staal - 1st bros/teammates to score within 1 min of each other since Neal & Aaron Broten (2/27/90) [url="https://twitter.com/NHLonNBCSports"]@NHLonNBCSports[/url][url="https://twitter.com/search?q=%23elias&src=hash"]#elias[/url][/quote]

Pretty impressive accomplishment by the Staal brothers and the fact that it hasn't been done in over 20 years. I was really surprised that the Sedin twins never did it.

I really like what Jordan has done with us this season. However, it kinda rubs me the wrong way to see an A on his jersey just because he is Eric's brother.

With Sutter wearing the A though, we needed a new alternate when we traded him and it only makes since that Jordan get it, especially since he wore the A in Pittsburgh.

Yeah, Jordan is a Staal. Period. Same mindset and leadership qualities of Eric, both in play and in attitude (apparently. According to Pittsburgh faithful who claim he is an amazing locker room guy). He deserves it. I'm sure by now he's earned it, for sure.
