E. Staal

The Wings are wary of the talent the Canes have up front with the Staal brothers.


"Being their home opener, I expect them to come out hard, be aggressive on their forecheck and pinching their (defense), so we’re going to have to be moving the puck well early on."
- Daniel Alfredsson

"They’re both big and strong and have a lot of skill. They’re good at both ends of the ice. You got to work and earn your ice against them and be aware of them defensively. Try to make them play in their zone as much as possible."
- Stephen Weiss

"I know Eric real well, he’s a good player, and then you add Semin into the mix. He’s a world-class talent. He can pass the puck and shoot the puck, big body. It’s a good group."
- Mike Babcock
