Stastny has more or less plateaued. He's a very good, solid, all-around player. But he's not elite. And I'll be pretty surprised if he sticks around past the remainder of his megadeal.
Dutchy hasn't plateaued (certainly HOPE not at the very least), but I don't think he'll be quite the impact player we were hoping for. Pure speculation on my part, just my opinion/gut feeling, nothing more.
I think the Avs can and will be a contender with Stazz and Dutch playing a part in that success...but IMO if they're the best pieces of said team, we might be a squad that makes the playoffs now and again, sure, but not a Stanley Cup contender.
