If COL could do better in a Stastny trade then good for them. But they need another top pairing dman, who is solid in his own end, and has experience. They have 3 great centers...something has to give.
Bouwmeester is so unbelievably Overrated, guy isnt a Top pairing Dman.
And for thos saying Stastny is overrated, he put up 53 points and was 2 points back of the Top Avs point getter. The entire Avs roster lacked point producing last year. Its not Stastny its the new style of play from the Avs.
And for those wondering, Stastny still finished 26th among Centers in scoring, ahead of Mike Richards, Ryan Kesler, Jordan Staal. Even in what was an offseason for the Avs for points.
If you dont think Stastny is a #1 Center, WHY THE **** WOULD YOU WANT TO TRADE FOR HIM. Stop making it sound like he's a #2 center just so your trade looks more balanced, its not and it never will be.
