Actually he was 34th as per tsn's stats. But point well taken, when you can beat the likes of Brad Richards and Mike Modano (granted he played more games than Richards and is much younger than Modano) he is still a valuable commodity. Not to mention the fact he was 40th in the NHL in faceoff percentages ahead of Crosby, Lecavalier, Getzlav and Savard. He is valuable on any team because he can play the PK, the PP, win big faceoffs and put up points. He would have been many teams #2 center last year (Ducks, Hurricanes, Isles, Wild, Avs) granted a lot of those teams are not very good down the middle, it just shows that there is still a need for centerman like Stajan in the NHL and most teams would pay well to acquire him. A 2nd round pick would have been a decent return for him last year, and if he plays well like that again this year than a larger return is not out of the question.
