But they'll give you the same production, and one will come probably $1M-$2M per year cheaper. Stalberg's game is highly insulated by being a role player on a skilled team, enabling him to get better matchups. Expecting him to be a primary offensive option on a less skilled team is going to cause a regression in his numbers. Think Ville Leino or Jiri Hudler, though the latter didn't drop off too much this past season.
