First off Montreal and Colorado are terrible trading partners. The Avs are looking for dmen or a goalie, which Montreal has but doesn't want to give up, and Montreal is looking for a top line center, but doesn't want to give up the dman or goalie Colorado wants.

The Montreal fans saying Stastny isn't a first line center, obviously have no clue whats going on in the NHL outside of Montreal land. I not going to put Stastny in the "elite" center category but he sure as hell is an all-star top 20 center in the league, and would automatically become Montreal's number 1 center.

All that being said I don't think Montreal has what it takes to get a deal done with Colorado for Stastny as Colorado is going to want a solid roster player a top prospect and 1st rd pick.

So Montreal is looking at something like:

To Col:
Cammalleri
Tinordi
(another mid-prospect)
1st rd pick

To MTL:
Stastny
