There is a deal to be made here. The Av's are really cheap. They have younger, cheaper players to take over for Stastny. Their fans might be happy to keep Stastny's 6.6m around for depth but management has shown an appetite to cut payroll.

Burke is under pressure to show marked improvement this season and make the playoffs. Stastny is still pretty young, so he can move some assets that he might not otherwise because he can sell Stastny as a long term solution and core player.

Once the CBA is negotiated and both teams have a better understanding where the sit, I expect this deal to get done. It makes too much sense for both teams.
