Couturier would cost us an arm and a leg and doesn't provide us with the scoring we'd need from a #2C in this division.

Spezza is a bonafide #1. So that won't happen.

And Stastny will probably command a $7.5M AAV contract on July 1st. So he's a possibility, but a risk.
7.5 was a big risk in 2007 but not in 2014. 10% of the cap isn't bad for a 1C.
