Cap reasons alone probably prevent the Avs trading Stastny...and as others have mentioned, he, along with the team, have been playing well of late and I doubt ownership/management are going to mess around with trading him now.

IF, and it is a big if, the Avs look to trade Stastny, it would probably be at the draft after they sign some of the guys to contracts and can afford to take on less salary/cap hit than they are giving up....and I really don't see the Avs looking to move Stastny, especially with Hejduk's status for next season being such an unknown. It would be just too big of a risk going into next season depending on Duchene, O'Reilly, and Lando to carry the load by themselves.
