Count me in as a Blues fan who would like to see this trade happen. I admittidely don't have very much faith in Cole(as a top pair defensemen), and I think Despres is the kind of guy that could come in and have an immediate impact for the Blues. He is projected to be the kind of player that will be a solid defensive workhorse with some offensive upside. His size, physicality, and mobility are exactly what we need in partner for Pietrangelo. I'm pretty high on Schwartz too, but keeping in mind that quality defensemen hold more value in today's NHL...I think a straight up swap would be pretty darn fair for both sides. I would love it we could make a trade for a star veteran 1st pairing LHD, but I think a trade like this makes more sense for the Blues. This way we could keep our entire core intact, and still add a quality young defenseman.
