Now that the largest chips of the free-agent pool have fallen over in Minnesota, teams are working to snap up the remaining free agents and also thinking about potential trades to upgrade their teams.

It shouldn't be surprising, then, for Colorado Avalanche fans to hear that Paul Stastny's name is being tossed around the Internet as a piece that the Avalanche should trade.

This time, however, the names being mentioned in return for Stastny are far more intriguing that they have ever been.

Both time, Dater suggests that the Avalanche should use Paul Stastny in a trade with the Anaheim Ducks to bring Bobby Ryan to Denver. Ryan has certainly made it clear that he would like to be dealt from Anaheim, and the Avalanche could use his elite combination of power and skill on the wing.

Dater tossed around Stastny's name in exchange for Rick Nash but, as Dater points out, Columbus "wants the moon" for Nash and it would cost the Avalanche far more than just Paul Stastny to bring him here.
