I mean he's a very good player and all, and i'm an Avs fan, but seriously, he is getting Crosby like hype around here and it's pretty funny.
I haven't read every post on this board about Stastny in the past few days but I haven't seen anyone suggesting he would be worth anything close to Crosby or that he is anywhere as good. However, he is young center who is a well balanced defensive play making center. Just because some of the poorer teams cannot afford him doesn't mean the richer ones can't. He has averaged a point per game for over 300 games, I believe only Nick Backstrom has similar numbers to Stats. There are a lot ofteams that would want him. The odds are against him being moved but it is possible.
