2) Trade him at deadline to get some asset in return for a pending UFA because you can't let premium assets go for nothing.

Tough choice. I used to be more in favor of the latter but I'm starting to think perhaps keeping him would be the right thing to do.
We should probably know well before the deadline on where the team stands with Stastny. A contract extension should be fairly easy to reach provided both sides want the other.
