It has been speculated for the past two seasons that Colorado Avalanche center Paul Stastny has been dangled as trade bait, and with one year left on his contract, many wonder if he'll finally be moved.
Stastny, 27, will earn another $6.6 million next season, potentially his last with the Avs.
Several teams have inquired about Stastny's services over the years, including the Toronto Maple Leafs, but a deal has never been reached.
With an upgrade to the team's blueline needed, the Denver Post suggests Stastny could be dealt in exchange for a top-four defenseman.
However, the paper notes that it has been fairly quiet on the trade front in Colorado lately.
In 40 games with the Avalanche this past season, Stastny registered seven nine goals and 15 assists for 24 points.
