I'm not so sure about making that trade, though -- Pavelski is a good player, but I'm not so sure he's the player I want centering my #1 line. He's above average in each aspect of the game, but not elite in any sense. I'd rather break the bank and pay the price for Stastny, as he has put up "elite" level numbers. If the Rangers are trading their #2 defenseman, I think they would either:

a. want an improvement on Girardi back
b. want a player that won't turn redundant -- Pavelski is probably the ceiling for Stepan, now that I think about it.
How is Pavelski Stepan's ceiling?

Stepan put up 20 goals, 45 points at 20 years old.

Pavelski at 23 (his second full NHL season) put up 19 goals 40 points.
