Stoll took more draws 5-on-5, but if you're looking at draws on special teams to be more critical to the outcome of the game (based on the increased probability of scoring or giving up a goal in those scenarios), then Handzus took more of the important faceoffs than Stoll did.
How many of those draws was Stoll kicked out of and Handzus took? Also, which side were the draws taken from? Murray used them depending on the side the faceoff was taken.

This also shows that Murray used Handzus too much and wasted one of the best faceoff players in the NHL.
