Jochen Hecht
Drew Stafford
1st in '09

Hecht gives you the same type of play Staal currently gives, maybe with a little more offense though. Granted Hecht is older than Staal he fills the void for a top defensive minded forward, keep in mind Briere's +/- this year in Philly compared to the last few years in Buffalo when he was playing in a much more wide-open style and had Hecht on his wing. He's also on a very affordable 4 year contract.

Stafford is Malone-lite at this point, he looks very similar to what Malone did 2 years ago, the only question is whether and when he will take that next step.
