Stastny really does not have the same amount of skills.

No, a classic principle of "spreading out your offense" is the reason why he didn't play all season with Getzlaf and Perry. They only need a complimentary player to play with them, and there's limited impact a player can have playing with them. Ryan can play there, but is wasted, as he's talented enough to lead a line on his own. And when Getzlaf and Perry aren't playing well, the line as a whole won't produce, so there's no reason to let Ryan go to waste, as well. It has nothing to do with work ethic.
