A pick will not be a center piece of a deal around Stastny.
That would be a trade that would give a #3 center right away, and a top 6 potential RW that could be ready for NHL duty in 14-15. Plus free up around an extra $3m to go shopping for a defensemen. I'd think that the Avs would be very interested in that deal. It probably isn't the best deal around, but one that fits what the Blues need and what the Avs need.
I had suggested Berglund+1st for Stastny and most of my board threw a ***** fit at that. Some fans on our board get attached to a player and being on a budget team, they absolutely fear high contracts. Would love to see Staz on the Blues as I think it gives Staz wingers to play with and could return to a 70+ point player. I really wish we could shell out more for Staz but I think Berglund+1st would be the absolute highest we could go because of his contract and how well Berglund has performed this season.
