Remember last year when Avs fans said that Stastny has wingers now (

Why can't Stastny produce with these wingers but O'Reilly didn't have a problem?
When is it time to acknowledge that Stastny peaked early and will never again be worth his 6.6m price tag?
There's a lot of teams that could certainly use Stastny, but I can't imagine anyone paying a premium for a 2nd line centre paid as a number 1.
What about Anaheim? They could certainly use a decent number 2 centre?
Both play with Duchene, Downie and Landeskog are both on the IR (and have been for a while), Hejduk isn't close to where he used to be anymore and Jones looks completely lost out there this year and throw in a few other guys like he's used to playing with in past years. He still doesn't really have wingers this year, and I'd say that the biggest problem isn't so much the lack of wingers but the removal of an offensive system. Stastny can't create plays in the same way that Duchene can, he uses the cycle but Colorado doesn't use a cycle anymore... they don't really use much of anything to be honest.
