If Stastny ever truly became available I think the leafs would have to be in on this. Bozak could be the centre going back making him battle it out for 2nd line job... But more than likely be the 3rd line c. Bozak has been a 1st liner for us the last few years but I think most leafs fans agree he is a 2nd/3rd line centre. Great on faceoffs and contributes 40-50 points.
The other piece would have to be quite significant to upgrade from Bozak to Stastny. I think adding in Gardiner or Reilly would be overpaying considering Stastny's PPG the last couple of seasons + cap hit... but really the Avs have no reason to trade him away. He's not an elite centre - I don't think he ever will put up huge numbers again, but if he could be a 1B centre for us and provide 60 points a year with above average defense thats a valuable piece.
Not sure what else Colorado would be interested in but I feel Toronto has valuable pieces that could make sense. JVR, Gardiner, Reilly, Kadri etc all come available for a player like Stastny.
