I think trading Stastny for a defender is a good idea, but since we aren't really gearing up for the Cup this year, we should keep him and hope he plays well and increases his own value. That way we've either got a Stastny who's playing like we expect and maybe we resign him at a decent extension or he has increased value in a trade for a top pairing D. If he plays just okay, his trade value remains the same.

The main thing wrong with this idea is that he'd be that much closer to free agency if we wait half a season and that always affects trade value. But I do think unless something too good to pass up comes along, we should hold on to him for a bit.
