Will the Blues make any deals?

At least they are not getting involved in some of these crazy deals going on..

They need a third line center and a top pair LHD.

Is there anyone available through free agency still? or will we have to go the trade route.

We are not trading Berglund,Oshie,Petro,Shattenkirk,Tarasenko or Schwartz

I would hate to trade Stewart,Cole or Rattie but we have to give something to get something

They have the assets but I am not sure is worth it to use anything good unless it brings back Yandle. Just give Cole the d pairing. They will not get involved in any top FA, they never were going to. It was always going to be a trade if anything. Not sure if they are high on Jay Bo or not but unless it comes cheap(assets) I would not touch it.

I was just about to ask for Oshie, but I guess that's a no-go.

I would be down for that trade but I am not sure if Armstrong would. Despres is great prospect but still unproven and while Stewart is coming off a down year, 25+ goal scorers are very hard to find in todays NHL.

I think Army would be looking harder at someone like Orpik.

No interest in Martin and after the Penguins lost out on the FA not sure they would still want to trade Martin and if they did that tells people alot about what they think about him.

We will probably try and make a trade for a legit top pairing defenseman.

This thread is going to have some terrible proposals in it though.

I'm not as big on this idea as another Blues poster, but at least this isn't Martin.

What about something like McDonald, Schwartz, 1st, (+/-) for Yandle, if he is available. I'd love to see the Blues with Yandle on the top pair.

Not sure McDonald and Schwartz can be in the same deal, but we have the pieces to get something done.

I see Martin staying put. Moving Despres is fine with me if it gets us Sid's Neal.

If Blues were looking to trade Halak, which they would need another year of Elliot being successful to do would take:

Kadri - makes up for the loss of Eller.
Gunnarson - in all seriousness, the most consistent player on the Leafs and would be even better in Hitchcock's system.
2nd round prospect/Bozak/B level prospect - just to add leverage, but not worth a 1st either

Even then it's not certain these will meet the Blues wants/needs

Well aren't Backes and Berglund the top two centers with Oshie and Steen capable of playing C as well (I know they're not used there much) and then Perron and Stewart/Tarasenko as the other top six wingers? So that puts Schwartz/McDonald out of/not necessary for the top six?

I'm sure you know better than me, but I think the Blues are shaping up to be a fantastic young team and I'd love seeing Yandle, Pietro, Shattenkirk all on the same blue line.

I doubt this would be the deal for Yandle but I'd do it.

We play a balanced top 9, where all 3 lines play similar even strength minutes.

Perron-Backes-Oshie
McDonald-Berglund-Tarasenko
Schwartz-Steen-Stewart

I see something close to that. McDonald is our best pure offensive player of the bunch. We have D'Agostini as well, so we can definitely move some of those parts. It's really seeing who Phoenix is interested in and going from there.
