This Clutch Performer May Fill The Void of Patrice Bergeron

Published August 7, 2023 at 3:50 PM

Paul Stastny, a seasoned forward, remains on the lookout for a new team a month into free agency. Nonetheless, prospects of finding a new home before the season's kickoff seem hopeful. Stastny's experience holds value, making him an attractive option for teams in need of depth in their lineup. Let's explore two potential landing spots for the skilled center.

Boston Bruins: The Bruins are in search of center support, but budget constraints might force them to seek a depth player instead of a star like Elias Lindholm or Mark Scheifele. Stastny could fit in nicely on their third or fourth line and provide an asset for their power play if they decide to sign him.

But, there is another team interested...

Colorado Avalanche: A reunion between Stastny and the Avalanche could be intriguing. The team could use some assistance in their bottom six, and taking a chance on Stastny might prove beneficial. Although not a top-six center anymore, he could serve as a mentor for their young players and contribute to their bottom six's offensive production.

As we anticipate the start of the season, it remains to be seen whether the Bruins or the Avalanche will take the opportunity to add Stastny to their roster.
