What makes me agree with you is that I don't think they'll tie up 14 million dollars on 2 players that may never exceed 65 points during the duration of their contracts. Stastny did it 3 times, his first 2 years and then another random year, but hasn't repeated anything over 60 in his last 3 seasons and it doesn't look like he'll break 65 on a year where Colorado is as dominant as they've been in the past decade.

Statsny may also become the 3c for them, as Duchene is regarded as the better of the two, and 7 mill for a 3c would be a horrific deal.
