I wouldn't say unlikely situations ,, Both are very possible
This team is completely different from the 2010-11 team and greatly improved from last years team. And even last years team wasn't bad, they just underperformed and Q had to stick it out with Brunette and O'Donnell for some strange reason.

If Toews goes down we're screwed either way. It won't matter. This team isn't winning a Cup without Toews, even if they got Stastny.. and if they did trade Bolland for Stastny, and Toews went down, the centre depth would be:

Stastny
Kruger
Shaw
Mayers

I don't see how that's much better. Stastny's better than Bolland, but after that, it's still not good enough to go deep into the playoffs.
