Every Wednesday during the season, NHL.com fantasy hockey expert Matt Cubeta will provide you with an in-depth analysis of fantasy centers in our weekly segment: "Center Stage." From updated center rankings to guys you should keep a close eye on and much more, Cubeta will be your fantasy center expert all season long.
It's been a long three weeks since our last "Center Stage" update, but we're back at it with an updated outlook at our fantasy centers.
With the New Year behind us and as fantasy insider Justin Goldman did in his "In the Cage" segment on Monday, it's time to take a look at five of the biggest center disappointments and then post their New Year's resolution for how they can turn their seasons around starting right now. We'll do the same for left wings and right wings on Thursday and Friday.
Eric Staal -- You've been just about a point-per-game player since your sophomore season in 2005-06 (473 points in 479 games), but this season you sport just 25 points in 41 contests. It's time to find your game of year's past. With your brother back on the ice for the Rangers (it was Eric's hit on Marc Staal that led to a concussion), we're hoping your mind is clear and you can return to your usual form -- we'll let the slow start slide if you're able to do that.
