You only gave positive reasons for the Rangers. Now here is a Stastny trade that makes sense:

To Avs:

Derek Stepan
Mike Sauer
1st round pick

Maybe more. Stastny is a 25 year old, PPG, olympian center. We won't get him for a salary dump and a struggling 20 year old.
I'd rather have Stepan then Stastny. Stastny has all the pedigree and I'm a huge Stastny fan, however he's a constant under performer, especially in big situations. On the other hand, Stepan has excelled under big games, the bigger the situation the better he gets. WJC, he was the top scorer, he brought his team to the NCAA finals and as a rookie he's got to be in the running for the Calder against a bunch of highly touted 1st rounders. He's only going to get better and he'll be better than Stastny.
