Yeah Stafford make a little we but more then Franzen Franzen make $3.95 million a year and Stafford make $4.0 million a year we shall see. I'm sure the Wings can do much better though.
Wasn't comparing him to Filppula though. He is a streaky goal scorer that is big but doesn't always play as big as people want. When he gets hot he can carry a team and be completely unstoppable. Just think he is very similar to the Mule, actually part of the reason I like Stafford is for 4 million he is a guy that can flat out take you places when he is on and that is rare. But I just don't think this ends well, he will become a favorite target in these parts.

Will say this he has one of the better senses of humor in hockey, the Detroit media would love this guy.
