Stajan has had his streches of good play as a leaf. Overall though, he lacks the qualities to be a solid player for us. His offensive game, scoring, and vision make him anything but a top 2 center for an NHL team. With proper linemates, maybe, but not on this leaf team. As a checking line center, he showed some promise.

However, I suggest that you checking line center should also be a strong physical player, one that Stajan is not. I feel we would get more out of this type of player, especially in a playoff series, as they can physically wear down the opposition's top offensive players. If I was building a team, that is the type of player I would look for. Quick, strong, physical, and good on faceoffs.

Stajan is the 2nd coming of Mike Peca, and anything less than a 8th rounder is appropriate compensation.
