Eric Staal possesses all the attributes necessary to be a franchise player in the NHL.  He is big, strong, fast, has good hands and is a good leader and teammate.  An $8 million price tag in this day and age is about market value for a player with his abilities. Good job by Jim Rutherford to get the team’s franchise player on board long-term.

The Jets are scheduled to return to the ice for practice tomorrow after taking today off.

The Moose will play the first ever school day game. @ICdave will join @danielthefink on the broadcast.
