Colorado Avalanche center Paul Statsny could become an unrestricted free agent on July 1 if he is not re-signed. Statsny is in the final year of his five-year, $33-million contract, and told Terry Frei of The Denver Post that he “absolutely” would be willing to grant the Avalanche a discount. “Everybody knows how the business works,” Stastny said. “You can obviously go somewhere and get more money somewhere else. But if you have something good and you want to stick with it, that hometown discount is obviously something that everyone’s aware of and is important to do. You want both sides to be happy. You don’t want to (mistreat) the team and you want the team to be put in a good situation where they can kind of compete down the road as well.” Statsny, 28, has 19 goals and 27 assists this season in 55 games and represented Team USA in Sochi. Stastny agent and Avs expected to talk later today. Situation still fluid, anything might still happen — Adrian Dater (@adater) March 4, 2014 Avs getting lots of calls from teams. Gonna be an interesting next 24 hours on Stastny — Adrian Dater (@adater) March 4, 2014 The post NHL rumors: Paul Stastny willing to take hometown discount to stay with Avalanche appeared first on Sports Glory.
