I just feel he won't. Lots of us thought that with Dutch and Radar it would be Stas on his way out. But with the stunt Radar has pulled it looks like Avs have spoken and that their top 2 C for the long run will be Dutch and Stas.

Plus Stas has family ties to this franchise. It would be weird if he was casted out and a PR nightmare. Stastny's father went nuts when they traded Stewart, imagine if they traded his own son.

I think that may well happen, he's a great second center and I could see him wanting to stay in colorado if he doesn't wanna play for the Blues, and so being ok with taking a bit of a pay cut.

I feel the only way Stastny won't be an Av in the future is if he becomes one of those washed-up guys who keeps playing into his late 40's or something

I doubt he will be traded due to his connections with the organization.

i don't see the need to move him at this point. his salary is a little high but he's still one of our better players.

I don't believe Stastny re-signs after his contract is up. I think he signs with St Louis.

That is 2 years away. I don't know what their roster will look like.

I just see Stastny going through the motions for the Avs. His heart isn't in it. Maybe a new coach would revitalize him, but if Sacco is still here he is gone.

It depends what the Avs get from the O'Reilly trade, and who they pick up in the draft. If they somehow get a Couturier, or draft MacKinnon, I think he gets traded for a meager return in the offseason.

Otherwise no, and he'll probably walk the following summer, unless he's willing to take a very nice paycut. I think even if they just have Duchene up the middle, the Avs will look to replace him rather than pay his UFA market value.

I won't be surprised if he goes elsewhere, especially if someone else is willing to give him comparable $$$ to what he's making now.

The key for the Avs will be if they have an adequate replacement when the day finally comes. So far they've been pretty bad in this department.

For the record, I don't see him being traded unless Stastny makes it clear he won't take a paycut and/or he wants to test the market.

He'll stay here forever and someday be an assistant coach.

They should fire Sacco and make Stas a player/coach

If Sacco is still here in two years it won't matter who's on the roster, the team will be ****ed.

Hejduk could run the shooting drills, Staz the passing drills, bring super joe down to teach Pajamas and O'Byrne how to skate.

Contract is too high for a trade. As I said years ago he is a solid second line center if you look at him the right way. I am thinking a poor mans Bergeron is what he should be playing towards.

Bottom line all of the guys will be better (e.g. Stats, Johnson and Jones) if the Avs ever get better supporting casts for everyone.

Did anyone real think that a D corp that featured ROB, SOB and Hunwick would not be weak? Any of those three are decent 6/7 d-men but not all together on the ice at the same time?

It will come down to what he'll want to be paid. Think Sherm and Stazz will have a serious conversation before the trade deadline next year, and if it looks like he wont meet the Avs $, he'll get dealt. I could see him, if this "regression" continues, signing for less and retiring as an Av. He'd be ideal as a 2C who eventually gives way to a younger player and transitions to a 3C pk/ faceoff guy.

Why are we paying all these coaches we don't need!?! If the management really wants to save money, there's how they should do it!

It's pointless to speculate, though I do get a little annoyed at the presumption that St. Louis is the obvious (only?) other place for him. I think people put way too much in such connections. Maybe when he's looking at his last contract he might do what he can to play there, but I'm sure he's got many other considerations before that.

Personally, I hope he sticks around in Colorado for a long time. And that it pays dividends for both parties.

I'd much rather trade Staz and pay O'Reilly the money.

I'm shocked they haven't thought of it before. Maybe if we pitch it to Kroenke we can get jobs with the Avs to?

Really? Staz is still a better playmaker and offensive player and has become a very good defender, Ryan and Staz are comparable players and will be moving forward while Ryan will draw a much better player in trade and we wouldn't be showing our other young players that we rewarded holding out.
