Takes 2 teams to make a trade which Leafs fans apparently forget since they think the whole league revolves around their team. Let me ask this again, how do the scraps the Leafs are offering fit into the Avs' line up to make them a better team? The only player that would make sense to trade Stastny for is Phanuef or Kessel.

McGinn-Stastny-Jones
Parenteau-Duchene-Hejduk
Landeskog-O'Reilly-Downie

The wingers the Leafs are offering would be at best the 7th or 8th best winger on the Avs, so you're telling the Avs to downgrade from Stastny to Bozak for 3rd line wingers? Please think before you propose.
Stastny isn't a PPG center currently (hasn't been for two years in a row) and Toronto isn't offering "scraps" for him. Also try to be a little bit more mature in your posts. Teams can set a price for their players but the real value is only what others are willing to offer.
