I think he's already a steady defensive forward, and I love his tenacity, as for a smaller guy he'll hit everything that moves. I also think he has some untapped offensive potential that was seen during the lockout when Sobotka played overseas.

I'm wondering if there's anything the Winnipeg Jets can offer to the Blues for Sobotka?
While I appreciate the interest, and agree with your assessment, Sobotka is far too valuable in his current role for us to be looking to move him. He's the perfect modern 4th liner: high energy, strong defensively, great PK guy, and capable of moving up to the top 9 in a pinch.

Add in our desire to win now and a lack of weaknesses above him, and it's hard to figure a scenario in which Sobe is moved.
