I'm not even sure I can describe it well enough to do it justice, but it was so exciting. They were absolutely lethal on the ice. People want that feeling back. I know I do.
It would be nice to have arguable two HOF caliber centers, but it's unrealistic for most teams. I'm not sure how trading Stastny is ever going to solve this problem. In fact trading him would probably make it much worse.
