Anyway, despite picking up Milan Michalek for only two 2nd round picks (Ottawa offered it to me) my Blues were in 12th place at the trade deadline. I decided to start a mini-rebuild and made a couple trades:

Trade #1

Louis Leblanc
2014 First Round Pick

David Backes
scrub goalie

Trade #2

2014 First Round Pick

Martin St Louis
David Perron

It was pretty lame to send St Louis back to Tampa after only a year, but I really wanted to get another high draft pick. I gave them Perron because he was playing horrible with only 22 points on the second line. Their pick ended up being fourth overall, so I traded it along with Montreal's pick (22nd) to Vancouver for the 1st overall. Obviously I selected Sam Reinhart. (66 overall, 4.5 yellow stars) Our original pick turned out to be the 7th overall, and with it I selected Aaron Ekblad. (58 overall, 4 yellow stars)

The team looks a fair bit different than it did going into last year. Here it is now:

Schwartz (82) - Berglund (84) - Michalek (84)
Oshie (84) - Leblanc (83) - Stewart (84)
Sobotka (82) - Sonne (79) - Grachev (79)
Shattock (77) - Mcrae (78) - Boll (74)

Shattenkirk (86) - Pietrangelo (90)
Sbisa (84) - Cole (84)
Russell (80) - some guy I don't remember (78)

Halak (84)
Allen (77)
