The Blues are scouting the Habs, I think we talked about it on ******** between curses ....
If this is true I think there's an excellent chance of this being a bit of a blockbuster. I'd have to think the Habs would be very interested in Patrik Berglund. Perron or Backes would obviously be excellent additions but I can't see Davidson parting with them. Berglund may be another story.
Is the order of who I want the most. I can definitely see the Blues being a good trading partner.
I agree. The Blues aren't able to develop a good goalie of their own since years. Toivonen, Bacashihua, Schwarz, probably Bishop. Maybe, in some seasons, Allen. So right now Halak would get plenty of time there I think.
They've been scouting the Habs since the Pittsburgh Game, but I doubt the Halak situation could spill into a massive trade ...
Me thinks :
Lars Eller, Ian Cole and Palmieri vs Halak, D'Agostini and Webber
Makes sense to me ! St Louis has one of the worst Powerplays in the league and need a young offensive D ASAP, they are bottom tier in pretty much every Goals Against category in the league and only have Perron in the '' Under 27 '' with more than 10 goals
Maybe they are scouting us because we are playing them next week.
Exactly! Pro scouting staffs are expected to have as much data as possible on every team and on every single player in the NHL. Scouts get paid to scout whether their GM is looking for a trade or not. In this case, they are likely doing advance scouting of the Habs for next week's matchup.
