Stajan is a 3rd line centre on any elite team, making 1.5M and giving you 30 points.
Puting him on the 1st line where he can get 55 points because of increased premium ice time with superior linemates means you will have to pay him $3.5M becuase he appears to be a better player, but that type of production means you will have a terrible team.
The better teams get much better production out of their top 6 forwards than the Flames are getting. And that's why we have the worst winning % in the West.
