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.
Said this in another thread, but gonna say it here, too:



If that ^^^ is Stastny ^^^ next year (or even this year), we need to give him the best winger combination we have to raise his value as much as possible, no?
