Hate is a strong word, but I seriously hate Stafford. Some people call it physicality. I call it running into people with no effect at all. He's one of our four or five forwards who we expect to score goals. Sure he's decently creative and not easy to force off the puck, but he needs to get on the scoresheet. I kind of like the Stafford for Hemsky proposal. Hemsky's far less physical but way more skilled, and we need more scoring. We'd win more games with players who score more. You can wear the opponent out physically, but at some point you gotta score, or you're still going to lose.

I'd give Stafford a 4 because he fought and has created a few glorious chances. But we need way more from him.
