Yeah?

Edit: Even more crazy throw in prospects and picks (Jensen + 1st + ?) to get Eriksson

Sedin Sedin Eriksson
Booth Stastny Kassian
Burrows X Hansen
Higgins Schroeder Downie

NHL 13 would be fun right now..
I do not understand this sudden idolization for Stastny. He is barely a bigger forward than Roy and their physical stats are even more negligible.

Roy: 15 Hits; 30 Blocked shots
Stastny: 21 Hits; 29 Blocked shots

The only notably difference between them is faceoffs, where Stastny clears trumps Roy. But is that worth assets and much higher cap space? The idea of replacing Kesler with Stastny is ridiculous. That is massive downgrade. Put into perspective, Kesler has more hits than Stastny is less than half the games - games he played with a broken foot and recovering from surgery.

I think Vanek is getting overrated but can at least buy some of the arguments favoring him. Stastny? He is overrated, overpaid, inferior to what we already have and can barely out hit Derek friggin' Roy. Why do we want him?
