Since the article that is referenced on the first page came from Buffalo, it's logical to assume the first team that could be interested in Stastny would be the Buffalo Sabres.
The Sabres are a talented team, but if there is one thing that they could improve, it's the center position.
It's good for them to have Derek Roy back this season, but the Sabres aren't very deep up the middle. They rely primarily on the likes of Jason Pominville and Tomas Vanek to get their scoring done.
Paul Stastny would provide a talented set-up man that would benefit from the high skill players that the Sabres have.
Salary would be the difficult thing for Buffalo, who has no space on their salary cap and would have to send some high salary players in order to make Stastny's $6.7 million cap hit fit on their books.
The article referenced suggested that Derek Roy or Drew Stafford with Andrej Sekera for Stastny, but that wouldn't fly in my book.
The Avalanche are deep on defensemen and don't need another one. It would have to be more like Roy and Stafford which wouldn't make too much sense for Buffalo.
The Sabres would have to get more creative if they were interested in Stastny.
