RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Last season was a total nightmare for Stafford, as he failed to get off the ground at all following the lockout. He struggled to 18 points in 46 games and posted a team-worst minus-16 rating. Speculative owners should note that heís notoriously a second-half player, but wasnít afforded that luxury in a shortened season. He entered last season coming off consecutive 50-point seasons, and is much too talented to have a repeat of last seasonís debacle. There will be ebbs and flows, but Stafford should approach the 50-point mark once again in a full season.

2012-13

Like many of his teammates, Stafford waited until it was too late to turn on the jets last season, but his post All-Star break pace (27 points in 32 games) and chemistry with Tyler Ennis provides high expectations for '12-13. Buyer beware, his breakout 31-goal campaign in '10-11 was also the product of a few hot streaks, so he will likely continue to run hot and cold. Another 50-point season is a reasonable expectation for Stafford in '12-13.

2011-12

The Sabres locked up Stafford to a a four-year contract before he could even test free agency, and a lot is expected of the North Dakota alum after taking a big step up offensively last year. The winger more than doubled his goal output from the previous season, and 30 goals and 20 to 25 assists is more than reasonable to ask of Stafford in 2011-12.

2010-11

A lot was expected of Stafford coming into 2009-10, and he was a major disappointment. Stafford's 14 goals and 20 assists were not enough for a guy who came into the year tabbed as a guy to take the next step forward. He's still only 24, and now with the pressure off and expectations lowered, Stafford could break out, or maybe this is just what he is -- a 40-point player who holds down the right wing on the third or fourth line.

2009-10

Stafford's numbers have steadily been increasing over the past few years. Last season he notched 20 goals and 25 assists compared to his 16 goals and 22 assists the season prior. Despite his good numbers, Stafford has the potential to do a lot better. At 23, he has time to mature as a player and could be among the Sabres' elite forwards.Ā@

2008-09

Stafford didnít rise as quickly as the Sabres hoped in 2007-08, however, he will get another chance in 2008-09. He offers a compelling mix of skill and grit. Stafford notched 38 points (16G, 22A) in 64 games last season as a 22-year-old. Because the Sabresí top three lines are filled with inconsistent and aging players, Stafford has a lot of upside and it helps that he already has 105 regular-season NHL games under his belt.

2007-08

Stafford was one of several Buffalo prospects that received a chance to play in 2006-07 because of a nasty wave of injuries that felled key players. Stafford asserted himself as the SabresÔŅĹ best prospect and is in line for a full-time role in 2007-08, probably on the second or third line. ThereÔŅĹs a good chance that he will significantly exceed his 2006-07 total of 27 points (13G, 14A) in 41 games and Stafford could win a power-play role as well.

2006-07

Stafford will likely spend much, if not all, of this year in the minors getting some experience. He's got a ton of potential, so keep your eye on this guy. Stafford was one of the younger selections to the U.S. men's national team for the 2006 International Ice Hockey Championships. Stafford projects to be a first- or second-line forward in a few years, and has good ability in short-handed situations.

2005-06

Chosen as Buffalo's first-round pick (13th overall), Stafford was ranked as the seventh-best North American skater heading into the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. He's big (6'2", 202lbs) and strong, and he never takes a shift off. He's probably destined for second line duty in the NHL, but he also learned to play the grinder role when he played for Team USA at the 2003-04 World Junior Championships in Helsinki. His upside is top line, but if that doesn't pan out he has enough skills to become a serviceable NHL forward deeper down.
