Drew Stafford: Buffalo’s Most Likely Trade Candidate

February 24th, 2010 by Matthew Hogan Leave a reply »

When Drew Stafford played his first season for the Buffalo Sabres back in 2006, the young forward showed tons of promise, but as of late, Stafford has been much less than what was expected.

The 2004 first-round pick has worsened statistically every year since his rookie season.

In the 2006-07 season, Stafford’s average production time was 19:56—that’s almost one point every 20 minutes on the ice. This season, his average production time is 30 minutes.

While we are on the topic of ice-time, Stafford is averaging just 15 minutes per game, which is 38 seconds less than what he played last season. Also, he has also played over 18 minutes just seven times this year.

Stafford has just two points and is a minus-two in a combined 11 games against division rivals the Boston Bruins, Montreal Canadiens, and Ottawa Senators.
