What Advanced Stats Say About the Sabres Pt. 5: Drew Stafford


‘The Sabres made the right move in retaining him after last season. He will never be an elite scorer or two-way player, but he proved in 2011-12 that he can continue to have 5-on-5 success and has found excellent chemistry with Ennis and Foligno. His overall scoring next season will largely depend on whether those two regress and whether he finds his power play scoring touch again.’
