Eric Staal believes Wild head coach Bruce Boudreau will give him a chance to bounce back next season.
"Bruce is someone that I believe, through the phone conversations I’ve had with him, believes in my game and believes in me," Staal said. "He will give me every opportunity to try to rekindle some of that offensive flair I’ve had over the years and haven’t had in the last couple." Staal has been limited to 40, 31, and most recently 26 points in each of his last three campaigns. Now with the Wild on a three-year, $10.5 million contract, Staal will likely start the campaign as a top-six forward. He's still a gamble though given how long and severe his decline has been.
