Matt Stajan

I've been wondering about this for a while: what happened to Matt Stajan?

I don't follow Leaf games very often, but wasn't he one of the best players for the Leafs last season? I was hearing he was even a possible candidate to wear the C. How could his value have dropped so low in such a short time?

I'm wondering what happened to him as a player. Him and Steen were playing great for the Leafs the last I remember (last year, or maybe the year before), and now he's a healthy scratch? Something must have happened.

Simple: he's in the doghouse now. He's gone from being overrated (in his younger days) to now being a bit underrated.

He's someone who's decent at most things, but doesn't really specialize in anything. IMO When he was younger he should have specialized in being either a checking forward or a skilled forward.

He's from Toronto. He didn't stand a chance with the Leafs.

Hopefully someone can get him for a 2nd or 3rd round pick and he can get on with his life and career. From what I have seen and heard of the guy he could be a serious second line player for somebody.

Sounds like a Vegas act.

Or a menu item.

How about Stajan for Robbie Schremp.

I think the Oilers would be asked for a draft pick or roster player to even that one out.
