Today’s number looks at Carolina’s captain and time unwisely spent. Number To Know 2 — Consecutive seasons captain Eric Staal has led the team in penalty minutes. Staal had a career-high 74 PIMs in 79 and 54 PIMs in 48 games in the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign. Twelve of his minor penalties last season were for tripping, and most of his infractions have been obstruction calls, not physical penalties often revered in a power forward. The Hurricanes need Staal on the ice and not in the box to be successful in 2014-15.
