However, he is not nearly as bad as you are making him out to be.
You are correct. He is not as horrendous as he is being made out to be. Hell Drury is on pace for less and is paid for than double. Come to think of it, he is on Gomez's pace. Which is embarrassing... for Gomez.

Anyway, the problem is no team is going to offer anything of value for an overpaid player on an awful season. Stajan is in the same boat as Gomez, Komisarek and etc. He is just not worth enough for Calgary to not try him again next season and hope for a better production. If you did find a taker, I guarantee you would be better off keeping him for the aforementioned reason.
