Fair enough, but to all the people wanting to trade Stastny... All the teams who have won the cup have been extremely deep down the middle at the time recently.


LA - Kopitar, Richards, Stoll (Carter but he didn't play much center)

BOS - Bergeron, Krejci, Marchand, Kelly, Peveley and the list goes on...

CHI - Toews, Sharp, Kane, Madden, Bolland, Bickell


Last year NJ had Zajac, Henrique, Carter, and Zubrus and they lost in the finals.

Our centers depth is really important to keep now that we have the chance.

If we make it into the playoffs this year, we will be looked at as the next up and coming team in the next 2-3 years. Much like Chicago was. We'll be attractive enough... That's if we can get healthy and show some progression.
