Just because the Avs have two other good centers does not mean they want to get rid of Stastny. Proposals like these would work if they wanted to dump him, or if he was about to hit UFA and wouldn't re-sign. But the reality is that Colorado is happy to have Paul, and have no desire to move him at all.

That means that any offer would have to pry him away, not just match what he is worth. (not that this proposal even did that much)

Avs fans keep saying they could use a top pairing D, and a scoring winger. So players like Gunnarsson, Phaneuf and Kessel, JVR would be of interest. Not Franson, Holzer or MacArthur, Kadri.

I can't see a deal that would be of interest to the Avalanche that wouldn't gut a core piece from Toronto. So there probably isn't a deal to be made here. But for S's and G's, what forwards interest Avs fans aside from Kessel? And are you guys thin for prospects at any positions?
