Stastny's $6.6M salary is too high to work for the Hawks. Even if Bolland is traded it would mean the Hawks couldn't (re)sign players to have the depth necessary to be a legit Cup contender. Show me the Capgeek roster where Stastny fits in and the Hawks can still ice a competitive lineup - cuz I just don't see how it's possible.

Any top-6 player acquisition will need to be a UFA so they won't affect the 2013/14 cap. More likely a bottom-6 centerman will be what Stan gets, if anything. And it will need to be from a team out of the playoffs like Florida (Goc or Smithson) or Edmonton (Belanger) or Columbus (Letestu) or Washington (Hendricks or Beagle).
