So, he has negative value, imo. Not a good hockey player being payed way too much.
Stajan is fine defensively. To call him one of the worst second line centres in the NHL is not accurate. He would upgrade a number of teams in the NHL at that position. He is not the most gifted offensive player, but he is not terrible. With Stajan what you see is what you get. I'll admit he is a little overpaid, but its not like he has a Kotalik, Kovalev or Gomez contract. He can still contribute to a team that is looking for depth. Given the direction the Flames are going, he would be one guy I could do without having on the roster.
