I don't buy this at all.
Stastny has declined in production for 3 straight seasons.
The reason he's been playing with diff wingers etc. is because he's been surpassed by both Duchene and ROR on the depth chart. He's not playing with Hejduk etc. anymore. Sure he's good defensively, but I don't consider him to be an upgrade over Grabo at this point.
I'd love to add him, but would be wary of the cost. I think the Avs would want more for him than what he's worth, still living off the fumes from those 70 pt campgains that are well in the rear view mirror.
