Stefan scored exactly 40 points once for his career high, Daigle cleared the mark four times, and was on pace to do it two other times (once because of injury, once lockout).
Daigle was a better scorer, if only because he had tons of opportunity on awful teams.

But I don't think his 86 points in 157 games in his late 20s after coming back from a two year retirement change his status as a draft bust at all. At that point he was a long way from providing any value to his drafting team. Cut off his numbers after 2000 when he first retired and they're very close to Stefan's career numbers. And Stefan played more games and scored more points in Atlanta than Daigle in Ottawa.
