Both teams were in a position where change was necessary. The Avs needed to address their need for a top pairing defenseman and the Blues needed more offense in their lineup. The emergence of Pietrangelo and Ian Cole and Jonas Junland might ease their loss of Johnson, plus Shattenkirk is no slouch either. It's a gamble for both teams, but it is one that could pay off for either or both clubs.

It's been an exciting day of transactions ten days before the deadline. Makes one wonder if teams are becoming trigger happy to get deals done before more and more GMs start getting more aggressive.
