This is my team right now( Standard Public 12 team Head-to-Head League):
RW-Martin St. Louis
With Giroux and St. Louis just getting injured I need another player, it doesn't have to be a right winger because a lot of my players have dual position eligability. I also think i'll be fine with only 3 D till Letang is back..
The top free agents i'm considering are:
Would you drop Staal for any of these players? Or anyone else on my team instead for them? Thanks

You hit the nail on the head. Staal is one of those guys that is incredibly valuable to his team in real life but vastly overrated in fantasy. His only chance to be fantasy relevant is through injuries to Crosby and Malkin. That said, Crosby could be out a while and Malkin is apparently a game time decision tonight, so I would monitor the situation with Malkin.
Obviously it would not be advisable to drop Staal, at least until Crosby's status has been determined, if at all. Not sure what stats your league keeps, but Staal is a FW monster, and v gd in several other categories. As your league is a 1-yr league, I'd by-pass Read and Smith (not much of a track record) too.

Why do you guys think staal is so good? He's a third line center and has never even had 50 points in his 6 year career. O. Jokinen hasn't had less then 50 points and even had a season of 91 points in the same 6 years...I'm just wondering why you guys like him so much fantasy wise?,
if you drop staal someone is going to come in and pick him up and WHEN he comes out of his funk, he is going to be exactly what he was all over again. just wait it out, your team is going to be fine. i would drop lucic over staal if you were to ask me.
