traded ] in 2006 entry draft.
How Boston want him back when they can choice another prospect or better.
Why ?
stastny wanted out of boston b/c his path was blocked by the ton of summer signings the team made. his future seems much better with boston now, since their forward ranks are putrid.

I think it's going to be hard work for all play-off contenders in the west.

There are SIX points between 3rd and 9th. (*not withstanding 4th)

Take a look at how many games these teams will be cannibalizing points from each other.

team/ranking/points/games remaining/head 2 heads...

Colorado....... 3rd - 80 - 16 - 11
Nashville...... *4th - 82 - 18 - and staying there - 4
Calgary......... 5th - 79 - 19 - 12
LA................ 6th - 77 - 17 - 12
Vancouver..... 7th - 76 - 17 - 12
Anaheim........ 8th - 74 - 19 - 11
Edmonton...... 9th - 74 - 17 - 9

I think we're going to see that the majority of these teams will still be fighting for a spot right up till the last week of reg play.

Hang on to your seats.
It's going to be a bumpy ride.


It's rather nice having Sammy heading into these battles.

You're right - but I think basically the top 9 or 10 teams in the west are contenders to at least come out of the west... For example, I think Calgary is a much bigger threat to win it all than Detroit, even though they are only in 5th plce compared to 1st. In years past only a couple of teams could legitimateyl come out of the West... this year it's wide open.
