PHILADELPHIA - Paul Stastny can pretty much pick and choose if he wants a new home.

The Colorado Avalanche centre is on a lot of radar screens with more than 10 teams making calls to his camp to see where he stands.

While the Avs want to keep Stastny in the fold, they may have a tough time if he’s got that much to think about, especially with so many teams in need of centres going into the draft.

“The talking period has made it really interesting for free agents because they can hear what is out there and then decide what they want to do,” said a league executive Thursday.

Clearly, Stastny could stand to benefit if he goes to market. He’ll have a big decisio to make and, if he does go elsewhere, there will be no shortage of destinations to choose from.
