Fantasy Impact: Boston Acquires Drew Stafford
The Winnipeg Jets have traded Drew Stafford to the Boston Bruins for a conditional sixth-round draft pick.
The Jets get: cap space and a draft pick.
The Bruins get: a player who was at one time a good fit as a second-line complimentary winger, but Stafford never fulfilled his potential and is now best suited on the third line with occasional stints on the second line as needed.
Fantasy Players Impacted: Stafford had been injured or sick for much of the past month and when he did play it was on the third or fourth line. So his leaving the Jets has no affect. His arrival in Boston will push the likes of Jimmy Hayes and/or Matt Beleskey and/or Peter Cehlarik to the press box. But don’t expect Stafford to spend too much time in the top six. But a new team could see the usual short-term bump in his production.
Fantasy Players this helps, in order:
1. Stafford (but not much)
