You end up with players that either don't produce at their max potential due to limited ice time,
or you get guys that throw a tantrum about the ice time (and demand a trade, one way or another, when it's time to sign a contract). That's why the vast majority of teams -- particularly the successful ones -- go with the more traditional top 6 / bottom 6 recipe.
Stastny leaving is pure speculation. Have you actually seen anything that insinuates that he wants to walk? Or that management has no desire to resign him?
I agree with this. I think it can work if you give them similar playing time like the Avs did last season but it doesn't make much sense. Duchene is on another level and should be playing over 20 minutes per game.
As for Stastny, it is all pure speculation but unless he takes a big paycut, I can't see the Avs re-signing him.
