I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'm not buying the Stastny love nor do I understand it. He's produced decently his last 2-3 years but isn't worth 6.5-7 per.

Why should we buyout Richards and then give a a 7 year deal with a similar cap-hit (6.5-7 million/year) to another guy who's nearly 30 whose best days are likely behind him? That's a recipe for disaster. Stastny isn't the answer, the only reason you guys are all trying to justify signing him is because he's the only decent center who will be available.
