As you've probably heard at this point, the Winnipeg Jets are going to induct Bobby Hull in into their soon-to-launch Hall of Fame, whether you like it or not. A lot of people don't like that it's the case, and it's hard to blame them. After all, he was far from the best person off the ice, stemming from before he even put on a Winnipeg hockey sweater.

Drew Stafford has always been efficient in his role: a top 9 player that has consistently score 15-20 goals and play at any spot in the lineup where he was needed.
Nabbing Stafford in the Evander Kane blockbuster deal didn't seem like a big acquisition, but Stafford has helped make the trade become an obvious win for the Jets. While all has been well during his tenure with the Jets, the possibility of trading him could be contemplated by the Jets front office before the season begins.
Stafford turns 31 in October and is in the final year of his contract with the Jets. The real question Winnipeg will have to ponder is if it's worth it to sign him for another year or two and clog up a spot that could be used for a top prospect down the road.
