Game 47: AllStaalEverything vs. New York Rangers

3 posts in this topic

Obviously we are out of the playoff picture, but nonetheless this is a cool moment for the Canes and the Staal family.

This will be the first time that all four Staal's (and their parents) are all in an NHL arena together. This also marks the fourth time that three siblings have suited up for the same NHL team.

Jared Staal was called up yesterday and will make his NHL debut tonight on the wing of older brother Jordan Staal.

Even more impressive is that Jared is trading no. 34 for no. 13 to set up a possible line of...

Jordan Staal (11) - Eric Staal (12) - Jared Staal (13)

Unfortunatley, Marc Staal is still feeling the effects of taking that puck to the eye and will not participate in the game tonight.

However, this will still be a monumental moment for the Canes, the NHL, and the Staal family.

With that said, Go Canes!!!

Cane's leading 3-2 right now.

Completely pointless but I love that they did this. It will likely never happen again as the youngest Staal has somewhat sucked at the AHL level.

But you gotta love the Staal brothers.

    • Could be. Hope to be.  I see the big time potential in both. In my opinion-The biggest obstical I see (not only with them but in many young players) is their self confidence. Taking it from "flashing" to "breaking out" or "to the next level" is an imaginary obstacle that stands in the way of a lot of players with potential. To get over the hump, it can take a play, a game or a season to get their mind right with the confidence that they can perform at another level.  KB and Funch have good coaching and all the skills necessary to be the guy, but in the end, they are human too. Most won't admit but the majority of people perform in a "fake it till you make it" environment so to speak.   Lack of confidence or conversely, proving to yourself you can do it, is not only important to the average Joe like you and I but to them as well.  Some guys get over the hump and exceed their own expectations enough to where it becomes standard practice. Others never quite get that bit of confidence or courage to take it one step above their self imposed ceiling.  Im optimistic so I think these two guys can break through. We will certainly have a good read on their direction this season.  PS- Did I use enough quotations?
