The Canucks would probably have to give up Lapierre as a secondary piece in the deal, as Stajan is the only center on the Flames who can win faceoffs reliably (pending Cervenka's debut and how he performs).
Maybe adding Comeau and Higgins to the deal would even it out.
I don't want Lapierre on this team, even if he were free.
I'll be honest there was a time when I was the biggest Stajan hater, but since he has been here he has gradually earned my respect. He can take faceoffs, kill penalties and is more responsible in our D-zone than 90% of our other forwards. He may not be a superstar, but he actually adds a lot to our team in areas where we are incredibly thin without him. It would actually be nice to see him have some success here so he can get away from being most fans' scapegoat.
