I mean Getzlaf had 5 more points in 3 more games last year.
Stastny will obviously not command Getzlaf value. He is not as good. But he still can not be had for minor pieces. And the only pieces in a trade with TOR that make a tiny bit of sense for the Avs would be Kessel, Reilly and Gardiner.
Those pieces are not worth the same and for Kessel we would have to add. But if you are a TOR fan and proposing anything besides them for Stastny and you are not completely mortgaging your future in the process, you probably have made a bad offer which does nothing for the Avs.
And I really would not trade Stastny for Stepan.
Take a look at Stastny's career PPG and come back to me. He had 2 bad years. But he is 26. There is no reason why he should not bounce back and we obviously don't trade him for the value his recent production indicates. Same goes for Getzlaf. But there everyone gets it.
With Stastny noone seems to do.
Its okay. We wouldn't trade Stepan for Stastny who makes 1/10th right of what Stastny makes
