Stastny was still playing at a PPG pace for half the season and only started to fall off once the injuries took their toll and basically the entire team's offense was lost. Plekanec was just playing his usual career pace.
Exacly. Stastny was playing with pluggers on his line like Porter, Yip, Stoa etc. for quite a bit of the season. Not to mention it was revealed that Stastny was playing with a stress fracture in his leg for who knows how long which is why he got shut down for the season with a couple weeks left.
I think he'll bounce back big time next year with some better linemates maybe a guy like Fleischmann/Mueller/Jones/Galiardi/Landeskog?
and 1 round pick and rights to Montador who is a solid D-men who avs can sign cheap and Connolly who should sign sheap.
Sabres give up very much but this is seriosly. you get Sekera and Montador who fills Liljes places . Connolly you maybe let walk or replace him for stastny then you get two top six forwards in Stafford and Gerbe and a good goalie.
And think we can give you one of Butler or luke adam also in this deal. What you think ?
Roy, Stafford, , butler for statsny and liljes ? Roy replace statsny and butler can devplomed to a good D and Stafford because Liljes is better then butler and Statsny are little hotter then Roy. Sabres gett same cap or just a little more and Avs get two 4 mil players and ine 1 mil player
They play the same type of game. Defensive Center.
Richie, seriously know when to fold your cards. Stastny is younger, around the same defensively, produces more with worse linemates. Cap-hit is justifiable as he's signed right into his prime years. 6.6 compared to 5mil is probably the only "downside" but you get what you pay for. And you started dissing their team while discussing trade proposals. Seriously?
Stastny + 3rd/4th for Plekanec + Pacioretty. Unless Avs GM is drunk.
I wouldn't do that from Montreal's side, but that's the way the negotiation would start.
