Stastny indispensable to Avs

Article on NHL.com about Stastny's role in Denver. It's often overlooked that, like Duchene, Stastny was an Avs fan his entire life, making draft day a dream come true; his boyhood idols were Sakic and Forsberg, and he got to play with both of them; he made the team right out of training camp, something no one expected out of a 2nd round draft pick that went the NCAA route; and he had a career high in goals that year (28), set a team record in points for a rookie (78), and came in 2nd for the Calder. For all the love we give Duchene, Stastny is every bit as amazing to have on this team. What's bigger news is the fact that we have entered into an alternate universe where the NHL actually recognizes the Avs on a regular basis. The roundtable videos are featured, Gali, SoS and Andy are on NHL Live, Yip and Jones are top highlight reels this week, Stastny was last week....what the hell is going on?? Are the Avs legit in the league again? Woh.
