In St. Louis, things are shaking up. A team with Stanley Cup aspirations for many years, the Blues have shed some key pieces, including Shattenkirk. With Stastny due a new contract next summer, they may decide to move him and rebuild around the talented Robby Fabbri.
While Stastny hasn’t ever hit the point totals of his early career playing with Joe Sakic in Colorado, he’s still a serviceable center with good impacts at both ends of the ice. He’d fit in the Rangers’ top-six.
The Rangers could likely get him for a reasonable price, especially if St. Louis is struggling to sort out the left side of their defense. Dangling the superfluous Nick Holden doesn’t hurt the Rangers (who have tons of left-shooting defensemen) but would be attractive to the starved Blues.
