I apologize if I saw a two time 26 point centre, who just happened to play with Gabe Landeskog last season, who just happened to be given 1st line treatment because of Duchene's struggles last season. As of right now, he is a 3rd line centre who had one good season.
You're telling me Ryan O'Reilly will be used more if he were to sign tomorrow playing on a line with John Mitchell/Cody McLeod and Milan Hejduk/Aaron Palushaj? Because he certainly would not get the luxury of playing with McGinn, Parenteau, Landeskog, or Jones (though Jones sucks); he would be the 3rd line centre on this team and I don't see him unseating Duchene, nor do I see Stastny playing on the 3rd line.
You can bring up his 55 point season all you want and then tell me that his first two seasons he didn't get any PP time or was playing more on the PK or that he was so young; I get that, I agree, but I stated that he is a 3C with 2C potential; on this team, I don't see him reaching that potential
Edit: Unless of course Stastny is moved/walks when he hits UFA status
