You are one of the very few people on here who wouldn't, IMHO. Ryan's going to get you at least as many goals as stafford did when he played with Foligno, Ennis, Vanek, Hodgson, and whoever else he was with during the year. plus ryan plays more physically and he only costs about $1.5 mil more. We have some cap room to play with.

Top 2 lines with B. Ryan
Vanek-Hodgson-Pominville
Foligno-Ennis-Ryan
that 2nd line is a devastating mix of physicality, speed/creativity/playmaking, and goal scoring.
I think the difference between them is a bit wider than some on here believe, but not enough to add throw in a ton of pieces with Stafford to make a deal for ryan
