In the wake of the Colorado-St. Louis blockbuster that sent NHLers Erik Johnson and Jay McClement to the Avalanche for Christ Stewart and Kevin Shattenkirk, plus draft picks, the father of Colorado center Paul Stastny had harsh words for the organization.

Speaking on St. Louis radio station KMOX Tuesday, Peter Stastny said the following about the controversial deal:

“This young team was ready to challenge, almost, for a Stanley Cup this season. They were so good. All they needed was some more chemistry, and some synergies. Instead, they destroyed the team. I mean, that was a one-way deal. (Blues GM) Mr. Armstrong will look like a genius. I don’t know what they were thinking in the Colorado organization. I should not have said this, but I’m so, so mad what they’ve done to this team. They’ve moved the team about two to three years back again.”

Stastny’s remarks came on the same day Colorado and St. Louis faced off for the first time after the trade, one in which Colorado won 4-3. Stewart and Johnson both scored for their new team.
