Drew Stafford would like to return to Boston next season.
"Absolutely. If there's any kind of a chance [to return to Boston], I would definitely be into it. I know my wife wasn't able to make it out here, but we had talked about it a little bit as a possibility," said Stafford. "If they feel like it could be a good fit then we'll cross that bridge moving forward. The business side of it kind of works itself out, but personally I loved my experience here and it would be great. We'll see what happens." He had eight points in 18 games after he was acquired from Winnipeg and he posted two goals in six playoff matches. If he doesn't re-sign with the Bruins then Stafford is eligible for unrestricted free agency. Apr 27 - 8:46 AM
