The guy is living off his father's reputation otherwise Kroenke wouldn't hesitate to get rid of that 6.6 mill contract.
And how would Kroenke do that? Stastny's still being in Colorado likely has nothing on earth to do with his father. He's basically a 60 point player making $6.6M per season. What team would saddle themselves with such a contract with 2, 3, 4 years remaining in it? Heck, or even 1 year remaining in it?

Stastny will be imminently tradeable at next year's trade deadline. Likely not before. And the Avs had set themselves up perfectly for it, with the drafting and development of Duchene and O'Reilly.

Alas...
