A #6 defensive defender is basically a bag of pucks in trade terms.

We can romanticism Fistric all we like due to his size and hitting, but he's not exactly the type of trade chip that's going to bring back much of anything. Grossmann, a much more mobile and established Fistric, only returned a 2nd and 3rd. That puts Fistric into bag o' pucks territory when you start talking about 3rd round picks and later.

With cap space to burn, Stajan wouldn't hurt the cap at all. His contract doesn't really factor unless you think the Stars will find a way to spend to $65 million + in the next two years.

Not saying I'm in love with the deal, I'm not a huge Stajan fan, but I'd be shocked if you got somebody of Stajan's level for Fistric alone unless Calgary was just hurting to move salary. The value is really good for Fistric, but I'm not sure it's a trade the Stars make regardless.
