It’s easy to get beaten down by what many people are calling “Staalapalooza” on Thursday night, as Jared Staal is making his debut alongside brothers Eric Staal and Jordan Staal for the Carolina Hurricanes against the New York Rangers.*

Sure, it’s a nice touch that Hurricanes coach Kirk Muller started all three to begin the game, according to the Bergen Record’s Andrew Gross.

Still, nothing could cut through the corniness and cheese of this story and make it something that cynics could enjoy, right? Well, this photo of one of Eric Staal’s sons might just cut through some of the skepticism:

* – One will inevitably note that Marc Staal plays for New York, but he’s still sidelined with that scary eye injury.

    Fairly sure that’s Parker Lucas Staal (his oldest son), but I’m not certain.

    He looks like a carbon copy of Eric and Jordan! So precious!
