    • I've owned Ruutu a few times in the past. I usually grab him mid-season, ride his hot streak/PIM contribution, and then kick him loose when he inevitably cools off. it's not like he's some green player that has a breakout season ahead of him - just look at his past numbers and they'll tell you all you need to know about his ceiling.

      Stafford, on the other hand, is probably the better play from here on out. I've been seeing him get snatched up in my more competitive leagues lately, and it's often been by teams in the top 3 in the standings, so you've got a good vote of confidence there. personally, I rode a late-season Stafford hot streak to a title a few years back. he seems to heat up at the right time whereas Ruutu cools off when you need him most. I think Buffalo has an outside shot at the playoffs, while Carolina just seems to be far too inconsistent to have a shot at the 8 seed (especially with Ward hurting), which only makes Stafford more attractive.
