Stastny moved to Blues for 5th round pick

From CBS Sportsline:

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Blues acquired center Yan Stastny from the Boston Bruins on Tuesday in exchange for a fifth-round pick in the 2007 Entry Draft.

Stastny, 24, had two assists in 21 games with Boston and three goals and nine assists in 11 games with Providence of the AHL. The son of NHL Hall of Famer Peter Stastny, who also played for the Blues, Yan was originally the Bruins' eighth-round pick in the 2002 Entry Draft.

Not exactly a blockbuster move, but a mentionable one regardless. This is probably for the best for Stastny...he's put up some decent numbers in Providence, but really didn't appear to be in the Bruins' long term plans.

I would love to get Paul here. Yan's brother has been pretty good in Denver this year.
