St Louis has fallen out of contention (not completely but it's looking bleak) so they might be sellers come the deadline. I just don't think this is a piece they would be looking to move. His contract is pretty reasonable and I could see him putting up a ton of goals with a little legit help, and I know he could open space for his linemates.

Thoughts on this one?
These are mostly young guys that won't get traded for the scraps we are offering. The organization has made it clear they aren't moving Staal or Malkin, thus we wait for a prospect to develop. Period.
