His future is the same as it currently is, our #2 center going forward until MacKinnon is ready. And I don't expect that to be for another 3-4 years since MacKinnon needs to learn how to play very steady defensively and/or we need to pick up a very solid shutdown center if we lose Stastny.
His line currently gets the top matchups and does very well at it. Only Duchy's line could handle those minutes and taking ROR off Duchy's line should not be explored unless due to injury.
We don't have a huge incentive to move him unless he won't re-sign and only Roy knows the extent of that discussion. So we'll leave it up to Roy to decide Stastny's fate and just hope he's willing to extend for ~5-5.5mil for another 3-4 years while MacKinnon develops and we start to contend.
