Does Colorado have the money? I get the feeling that they're on an internal budget right now, although that could change with the success they're seeing. The other question is whether or not Colorado would rather spend that money elsewhere. The money Stastny is going to get would bring in a solid 3rd line center and a decent 2nd pair defenseman. From a roster building standpoint, there are ways in which it makes sense for Colorado to let Stastny go... or even trade him at the deadline for the same reasons we talk about trading Callahan and Girardi.

I'm not entirely sure I would want Stastny on this team. Mostly, I worry about adding another center with skating issues.
