But, if i had to pay 6M+ to one of the two, i would pay ROR.

BTW, neither one is worth 6M+ today.
I agree, and that is why trading Stats before knowing what will happen with his and/or ROR's contract seems like a bad idea to me.

Avs would be running 3 scoring lines not the standard line format if they kept all 3 centers.

I'm in the minority on here, but I'd be just as happy trading our 1st for Dman to match with EJ (and probably receive some ++). I know there are great players in the draft. but our first would bring back a much better piece than Stastny would. The missing Dman is the largest and most important hole on this team, and also the hardest piece to fill.

Unless we have the 1st pick (and even then I'm not sure Jones fills our need), I'd trade it if the offer was right.
