This was really an underrated trade. I loved Nikitin but he just wasn't cutting it last year so we brought Russell in. Russell was a huge part of the Blues defensive success. Paired with Polak they really formed some great chemistry together. Russell, I thought, was our best player during the LA vs STL series.
