Drew's usually good for 20G/50 pts a year. Certainly a 2nd line player in the NHL.

Up until last year, I questioned if Drew would ever put in the work necessary to take the next step, as it always appeared as if he'd just disappear for stretches.

Well, last year was the first year I saw a consistent effort from Stafford. Night in, night out he was one of the guys who always seemed to try. He skated hard, hit a bit, and hs developed into a steady 2-way player.

However, dude was SERIOUSLY snake-bitten last year. a 5% shooting percentage? That's not JUST a slump --- that's a slump PLUS some seriously bad luck. Staff is one of the guys I'm least worried about going into 13/14. He'll be there, on the 2nd line wing, killing penalties and playing the PP. He'll get his 17/18 min a game and hopefully be a positive influence on the young guys.
