It's becoming more apparent with each passing day that Stastny is not the same player he once was. With ROR about to be traded and Stastny completely ineffectual, we'll be looking at Flames-esque center depth soon.

In my opinion we need to get a quality 3c back in the ROR (like Burmistrov or Goc) trade along with a young top 3 dman or elite D prospect.

And as much as I hate losing, Mackinnon, Barkov, or Lindholm could do wonders for our center depth but Varly is trying his best to drag us out of the top 4-5.
I'm not as concerned as you are based on the unknown return in the eventual Ryan O'Reilly trade, as well as the quality UFA centers available in the next two off-seasons.

This summer alone, Derek Roy, Mike Ribiero, and Stephen Weiss are more than worthy of playing behind Matt Duchene. Jokes aside, Tyler Bozak isn't a bad option either.
