Hence why trading for Stajan would be idiot.
Even though this is typed on this same page just minutes earlier, I'll cut and paste it for you:

I'd also be more willing to convert Stajan to the wing than Desharnais, and that's also one of the possible roads that the Habs are going to have to take. I think Stajan makes the team better and gives Therrien more flexibility/options when constructing 4 lines, but I don't really care about Stajan. He's just another example of a player I'd rather see out there instead of Desharnais.
