Stastny available for trade, once again

The Colorado Avalanche is hoping to get center Paul Stastny signed to a new contract, but if they can't come to terms, the team could trade him by the deadline.

Stastny, who is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent July 1, has been the subject of trade rumors over parts of the last two seasons.

However, it is quite possible that he gets moved, the Denver Post first reported on Saturday, if the team doesn't get the sense that they can lock him into an extension.

Two separate league sources, representing two separate teams, confirmed to TFP on Sunday that they have been informed that Stastny is available for the right price.

"To me, it's something I really don't worry about. You worry about (this week) a little bit, but we have a good thing going here and everyone realizes that," Stastny told the Post. "You want to keep winning and don't want to break that chemistry, but at the same time if something happens, it happens. It's just part of the business. Some things I can't control and I just worry about what I can control -- and that's playing hockey."

Joe Sakic, the Avs EVP of Hockey Operations, isn't tipping his hat, but did tell the Post that he isn't itching to make a move, but would consider one if it made sense for the organization.

"The chemistry is great on this team," Sakic said. "It's a great dressing room. For us, if we do nothing, we'll be happy. If we can improve our team, and have that vision that whatever we do here is going to be good for the next two or three years, then we'll try to make our team better. But if it's status quo, we'll be happy with that as well."
