Really can't see San Jose. They're deep enough on defense to be o'k right now without Burns and Demers. IMO, they're a team that deals a guy like Murray when those two come back.

Winnipeg needs defense. Anything make sense?

St Louis doesn't need defense, but Redden is their #7 and their prospect pool on defense is limited. Thoughts?

Ottawa? Nashville? Montreal?

Minnesota would seem to be a pretty good fit of team needs.

LA needs affordable defensive help. Detroit too.

Maybe Dallas? Columbus?

Calgary seems to make a lot of sense. Piece of big package for Iginla and Glencross . . . Sid and Geno with two good wingers each, NHL issues retroactive clause to CBA banning that.

Definite match of needs . . . TK & Despres for Stewart
Calgary is a Pipedream. Last minute deadline Hossa type deal.

Minnesota makes alot of sense. Root for their rookies to play well this year.

As for the Blues. I doubt they'll change things unless they're getting a sure fire upgrade for Pietrangelo. Niskanen playing well with Letang has a deal written all over it. Especially if Despres builds on his last game and becomes reliable in his end.

Biggest question would be, is Despres a part of our longterm plans here. And does the coaching staff believe Niskanen can/should be a longterm partner for Letang.
