The only problem with Stajan is that he is a SECOND LINE centre being used in a 1st line role. For a second line centreman, there are not many better in the league. He is a good FO guy, decent speed and a decent playmaker. He just is not a top guy. His contract is as Lunatik said is not steal, but it is fair value. If we had a true #1 and had Stajan as our 2nd, there would not even be a discussion about this. Hopefully Backlund surpasses him by next season and can assume the top line duties.
