Not sure if he's better than Plekanec at this point in their respective careers though.
Stastny kills plekanec. Better at everything, way more physical, and dominant along the boards at both ends of the ice. I maintain that he is the most underrated player in the league for a while now. All because of that salary, when in reality he's overpaid by no more than a Mil. I'd be ecstatic if we could land him, he'd make pacioretty such a better player!
