I'm pretty sure Stajan's potential is pretty high i don't know who i would compare him to though.

IMO his Stajan's potential is...

60 points, 25/30 goals and 30 assists per 82 games. Most likely a 2nd line centre who will also get PP time.

As of right now I think I'd compare him to prospects Antoine Vermette, Chris Higgins, and Matthew Lombardi.

I'd say 2nd liner. 20 goals and 35 assists.... 55 points tops I feel. I'd compare him to Matthew Lombardi as I feel that they will have similar careers impact-wise.

He's got good potential, however, he still has to bulk up if he wants to have a greater impact over a longer period of time. I like the Lombardi comparisons as well. I also see Stajan being a poor man's Joe Nieuwendyk if he can continue to develop as strong as he has.

I see Stajan as a second liner who scores between 50-60 points per season. Not sure who to compare him too...It has been to long since I last saw him play.

I think he'll be a decent 2nd liner in Simon Gagne mold.

Bingo, there is finally a decent comparison on Stajan that I can agree on. Although he is a good comparison on similar styles of play I am not so sure Stajan would match Gagne's offencive play.

Comparison: Poor man's Ron Francis

With some more bulk, he has 1st line potential. But right now I'd have him as a future 2nd line centre. If he moves over to the left side, I'd say it'll be that much easier for him to be a 1st liner because of the lack of top notch 1st line LW's in the league.
