Eric Staal – (Ryan) Eric Staal’s traditionally been arguably the safest bet in the league to get you at least 70 points every season and one down campaign isn't enough to make me lose confidence in him when he’s still just 29 (30 on Oct. 29).  I’m looking for 25-30 goals and 70-80 points out of Staal in 2014-15 and I’d pick him above others in that range because I view him as a safe bet despite his down season.
