Bozak has 35 points in 39 games this year while playing a solid two way game.

He may not be the definition of a #1C, but he definitely hasn't held our first line back

Shouldn't be a problem. The only problem is that Mac and Duchene will be the top 2 centers for the next 10 years. And I don't imagine Stastny sees himself as a 3rd line center.

Glad to see Stastny is willing to take a discount!

This is bullying. I'll respond only to your hockey point. He has played better this year, still no where near the value of his contract. I don't think it's a coincedence that the only good year he has in half a decade is the one where he's due for a new contract. Hopefully GM's around the league see through the aberration that is this year. If you showed up for work once every 5 days you would be fired. Hopefully GM's see this in Stastny and pay him for his work in the aggregate of the past 5 years not just this one.

Isn't Stastny going to have his best season since 2009-2010?

He is about to pass 50 points just this season and is on pace to hit close to 70. He's scored 20 goals every year besides the lockout and his injury plagued season. He's only failed to hit ~60 points once (53 in 79) and twice if you include last year where the entire team sucked.

I agree whole-heartedly. But this thread is about Stastny. If you want to make a thread about Clarkson I'd say the same thing as in this one. Clarkson is a more well rounded player to be sure, but he is definitely very overpaid.

That's just not true. He hasn't hit 60 points in 5 straight seasons. Not just once.

I would say Stastny is way better defensively than Clarkson and isn't as stupid.. 10 game suspension. Stastny is superior player to Clarkson.

If my goal was to incite you or anyone else wouldn't I insult all of your players instead of just 1? I like Landeskog, ROR, Duchene and NM a lot. Everyone is allowed to have an opinion and express it in a tactful and wise way like I do.
You call him a 50 point player yet he is not. He's four points shy of 50 points this year in 55 games. Even if he was a 50 point player, look around you. This is the NHL in 2014, not 2006. 50 point players don't make three million per year.


Stasnty is a 60+ point center who struggled under the worst coach in the league and terrible linemates(Avs fans cited both of these reasons as responsible for Stsatny's decline for the past two years. To anyone who paid attention to the Avs it was obvious). Under a competent coach he's once again succeeding. You calling him a 50 point center is terrible logic(well, it's actually not even logic, it's made up).

.83 ppg right now while drawing the toughest matchups and zone starts. Not bad for a 3rd line center.

I think they're comparable. Stastny isn't s good as Clarkson defensively and definitely isn't as physical. He sticks up for teammates. To me, that's a good thing. It builds chemistry. I want guys on my team who fight for their teammates. It's certainly something Stastny would never do.

Stastny SHOULD be getting calls.

He's a solid center who can both be used as a rental for this year, but also a long-term solution to a team looking to add a top 6 center.

Here's hoping the avs re-sign him.....barring a spectacular return.

"Overpaid" is a relative term. I'm sure there would be a team willing to offer Stastny $6.6m on a 1 year deal next year, which in turn makes him not overpaid.

But, even if he was overpaid, it's a moot point at the deadline. 75% of the teams who would have interest in him couldn't care if he makes $6.6m or $4.6m. Either they really want a #2C and are going to come up with a package that makes the Avs justify the cultural impacts of losing Stastny this year, or they're not.

It just so happens that the Leafs are one of those teams in the 25%. They don't have anywhere near $6.6m worth of players that Stastny can be better than, and there is practically zero cap space. The obvious exception would be David Clarkson, but he's not going anywhere.

Objectively... of course an Avs fan who likes Stastny is going to blame Stastny's lack of production in recent years on factors outside of his control. Realistically, the only way we'll know whether his increased production this year is an aberration or not, is to resume this discussion in a year's time.

Stastny hasn't been a 60+ point centre since 2010. Of course, he's on pace for it this year, but nobody knows forsure whether that's because he's having a really good contract year, or a career rejuvenation.

Isn't as good defensively...? He's facing among the toughest quality of competition in the league. He's been the Avs shut down center all year. He's excellent defensively.


And yeah, Stastny isn't an idiot who jumps off the bench and gets himself a ten game suspension. How many points does Clarkson have...? Ten? Fourth liner.
