When it all comes down to it, I think there Bruins like what they saw from Drew Stafford. Unless they are blown away by a particular rookie or particular rookies, I think Drew Stafford returns on a one-year deal worth anywhere from $2.5-3 million.
He is a player that fit well in the lineup, saw success and made some big plays. He is a better option than Jimmy Hayes and Matt Beleskey as well. Honestly, the confidence might be present in the young forward talent that the Bruins possess and Stafford could just be cast away. Don Sweeney has given out some questionable and thought-provoking deals in the past, so it will be interesting to see how the Stafford situation unfolds over the summer.
