Jeez guys, where did I claim they were exact carbon copies? Nobody gonna point out that Ryder has slightly fairer hair? The point is that they're both empty calorie players (and by that I mean Ryder in his last season). When they don't score, they're worthless. There's no "well you at least get strong two way play" from Stafford. And even when he scores, he probably gives as much if not more back by not being that great of a two way player. He's nothing like Jagr, Stempniak, PAP.
Just because it's a low risk move doesn't mean you have to automatically like it.
