The kid is the same age as Pouliot and has put up incredible numbers in the league.

His point per game production is better than Kopitar (a comparable player from his draft year) and that of players like E. Staal, Carter and Parise. Stastny traditionally hasn't hasn't got the hype of guys like Kopitar, Paris and Staal but so far in his career, that is the tier of player he has been.

It's incredibly unlikely that the Avs give up Stastny for Eller, a 1st and, Weber, etc. Don't get your hopes up people.
Yes and they also have Duchene who is taking a similar, if not better, path. They are clearly rebuilding around 2 players...Erik Johnson and Matt Duchene. They are not in a financial position to have over 20 million committed to 3 players and there isnt a chance Duchene or Johnson moves. Which leaves Stastny the odd man out.
