Stastny would be great in Toronto or St. Louis.
Offensively, he is essentially a one dimensional player - he makes plays down low and along the boards. His goal totals have remained roughly similar, but his assists have dropped off a lot since we moved Chris Stewart, which was incidentally the last time Stastny played with a real goal scorer.
If he was playing in St. Louis with their strong possession game or in Toronto feeding Kessel, he would quickly return to his near-PPG level, I have no doubt of that. I can't imagine St. Louis wanting to disrupt their chemistry though or take on his expensive contract.
I do agree that a Stastny + depth Defenseman for Phaneuf + depth Center deal could be a good deal for both sides if the Avs get ROR signed but it really depends on how Toronto would fill those minutes Phaneuf plays. It's hard to say without knowing what direction the new management will take the team in over the next couple seasons.
