this is a bad deal no matter what team you root for. Stastny is overvalued in Colorado the same way Legwand is in Nashville by its fans. They can't trade him for what he is worth because no GM will pay it. They will pay .50 on the dollar, esp if they know Col is gonna take Mackinnon.

For nashville, Forsberg is a top 5 draft talent that fell for whatever reason. him plus the 4th is ludicrous. Makes no sense to trade 2 top prospects who are considered elite prospects (by many) for one. Stastny plus the first for 4 and Forsberg I think would be turned down by Nashville, because the upside of Forsberg is a sexier proposition than Stastny's steady eddy act. There is not much difference in call between 1 and 5, so overpaying is plain dumb. Give us The 4th plus Blum/Ellis and a later pick is fair value judging by history. The other picks are semantics.
