Buffalo Sabres coach Lindy Ruff has demoted Drew Stafford to the fourth line for Tuesday night's game.

Stafford has just one goal on the season and is carrying a minus-5 rating and Ruff is hoping a demotion snaps him out of his slump. We don't expect Stafford to stay on the fourth line for long since the Sabres don't have a ton of scoring talent up front. That said, we also don't know when the notoriously streaky Stafford will start scoring again. It might be best in some formats to walk away from him and monitor him from the waiver wire.
