On the other hand it'll be more difficult for the teams to fit his salary in because the cap will be lower. If a team trades for him at this year's deadline there will be the whole summer to make some trades and sign FAs to ice a good team around Stastny. If he's traded at next year's deadline the teams will be forced to get rid of a lot of salary to fit him in which will be difficult because you won't find many takers for expensive but average players when the cap ceiling is so low. So a GM will have to make his team worse if he wants to trade for Stastny. (Things will be completely different if Avs are okay with retaining a part of his salary. though.)
I think the market for Stastny is better this year than it will be next year.

Edit: Also, he could be injured next year and we'll lose him without gaining anything in the summer.
