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.
If we decide to trade Stastny mid season or near the trade deadline, we are not getting a top pairing defenseman, maybe a #4 but even that is unlikely.

We have to accept that we are probably getting picks and prospect for Stastny if we trade him.
