Came in here to post about this. I think it would be wise to claim him, even though we do kind of have a bunch of defenders in the way right now. But having him would make it a lot easier to move Meszaros, and Russell's best asset is his puck-moving ability, something we obviously lack (No, Streit doesn't solve this problem). Blues fans seem unhappy he's on waivers, I think we should grab him up.

He is currently a RFA, so it's odd that St. Louis would waive him, but whatever.

Kimmo - Luke
Coburn - Streit
Gus - Grossmann/Russell
Grossmann/Russell

Now that I think of it, Grossmann is a beast when healthy, and I feel like Gustaffson has earned his spot. I actually think Russell would be a better fit for this team than Streit, but whatever. The more I think about it, the more I really dislike the Streit signing.
