Hmmm maybe Stastny had a rough start to the year with McPing hitting every piece of metal in the rink 3 times a game and 6 times on Sunday.

Stastny hasn't been great but hes been quietly producing while we all talk **** about him, as usual.
Agreed...good post.

It's weird that people just don't see that if McGinn had scored on HALF of the EIGHT posts he hit in those first 5 games while playing with Stastny, he'd have 16pts in 19gp instead of the 12pts in 19gp, like David Backes does right now.

OMGZZZ David Backes must suck eggs too!!!

Stastny's had a few bad games here and there but he's also had a few strong games too. EVERYTHING depends on:

a) Does he even want to continue playing for the Avs?
AND
b) Is he willing to re-sign a contract extension at a more reasonable cap hit like ($5M to $5.5M per year)?

If the answer to either is no, then he WILL be shopped and we'll get our max return for him this summer or at this time next year. If the answer is yes, then you can bet the Avs will send RoR packing somewhere because that's just how Lacroix operates.
