I don't think so, by moving ROR I think it should pretty much set in stone Duchene and Stas as our 1-2 punch for the future.

The only place I can see Stastny wanting to go to besides Colorado would be St Louis. And I believe so long as the Avs don't ask him to take a huge pay cut he will probably stay here. He and Duchene have become pretty good friends I believe, and Stas likely realizes all the young talent here at this point.

If we offered Stastny something like 5 Years 27.5M for his next contract, I think he would take it. Especially if we can go out and make playoffs this year or at least next year.
