At this point, I think the Flames should just accept the inevitable and put Stajan in the top six.

Cammalleri-Backlund-Iginla
Glencross-Stajan-Tanguay
Baertschi-Horak-Stempniak/Hudler
Begin-Jones-Jackman/Comeau

It comes down to utilizing the available talent most efficiently. With good linemates and decent ice-time, Stajan's good for somewhere around 40-50 points (pro-rated). If Backlund can take the next step and put up similar numbers, then the Flames will still have sup-par centre depth, but it could be serviceable, provided the wingers, a position the Flames the strongest in, mitigate that weakness by contributing more.
