The bottom line is that at some point, one of Duchene, Stastny or O'Reilly need to be traded for an improvement on D.

Right now with O'Reilly's contract ugliness, it won't be him.

Duchene won't be traded because this kid bleeds Blue and Burgundy and still hasn't even finished becoming that elite #1C

Stastny is the most logical answer right now. He's not as flashy and explosive as Duchene and he's not as great defensively as O'Reilly but he's always playing a quiet, consistent game that a lot of the time gets overlooked by fans. He's our best playmaker and he has great hockey IQ, he's just been given the Sundin treatment in terms of wingers the past couple seasons.
