Jeff Skinner is confident that the older and younger players on the Sabres will learn a great deal from recent acquisition Eric Staal.
"Just sort of watching him compete is probably the biggest thing," said Skinner, who started his NHL career on the Carolina Hurricanes with Staal. "He was the captain and sort of the face of the franchise and we were sort of always on the bubble and didn't quite have the success we would like as a team, but he was always a driving force and always competing every night." Skinner was an 18-year-old rookie in 2010-11 when he was assigned the locker next to Staal. They could be linemates in 2020-21 after Staal was obtained from Minnesota in exchange for Marcus Johansson Sep 18 5:38 pm (EST)
