    what kind of style does he play? Playmaker, shooter, grinder???

    How does he compare with Bolland in this draft, and to Higgins from the 02 draft?

    Fast,Big, powerfull,agressive, strong finisher, .....doesn't possess superstar skill but with his approach to the game he could produce like a Keith Tkachuk.

    He doesn't quite have Tkachuk's goal scoring abilities, but he's defenitely got scoring upside of his own. I think he's closer to Trent Hunter, who I think will be a consistent 60 point scorer in the NHL.

    It was hard to get a read on this guy. With Bochenski, Murray and Parise eating up the minutes and getting the top D draws Stafford was not as closely watched, at first. He played solid for Blais. A big guy that does his thing. This up coming year should either be huge or just another year a la Barry Tallackson another big guy in the WCHA that shows promise but cant find his nitch in the open college game. Stafford may fall in a simular category. Not quit able to keep up with two line passes and Olympic ice, but kills in the corners and looks like he will be very physical. With good hands.
