Yes. The two things he provides is speed and shot.

His shot is his greatest asset. He's got good speed, and can absolutely fire the puck. Defensively he's nothing special, but he's definitely a solid pick up for a 5th round pick. He's better than most guys you would get in the 5th round Solid player, we just didn't have room for him.







That's the kind of goal he scores most often. Use speed to create space, and fire the puck.

I'm surprised Dags market value was that low. Saved some cash and a roster spot.

Hopefully 2015 happens to be a deep draft.

Dags & conditional 7th to the Devils for conditional 5th or possible 4th in 2015? So much for high value in return! Just like Crombeen to Tampa for a 4th last summer. I'll go to sleep and await a real trade to rock the core of the Blues while you youngsters slam down those energy drinks making more asinine proposals since you don't sleep, just saying...

so can anyone tell me what to expect from D'Agostini? i find it hard to believe Lou made another Loktionov type move with a 5th rounder so what are his weaknesses?

Yeah Armstrong trading for picks really hasn't impressed me yet with the Brewer, Boyes and this one. I guess Bishop was a good return and Crombeen was about fair value.

Not good defensively. He's a 3rd/2nd line tweener really. He's a decent player and IMO for a 4th or 5th he's a steal.

Hmm, not good defensively means he might get eaten alive in NJ, you're either 2way or you die here.

Korac just posted an article that clarified (and changed) his original understanding of the deal.

If the Devils qualify/re-sign D'Agostini, the Blues simply get a 4th round pick in 2015.

If the Devils don't qualify/re-sign, the Devils 5th rounder goes to the Blues and the Blues' 7th rounder goes to the Devils in 2015.

That could very well be. I'm not really complaining about the return, it just seemed like D'Ags + a little something(2nd or 3rd) would have been a decent package for a rental(not a spectacular player but a decent one). ****, we gave up Brewer for a worse package than that. But like I said the market is what it is. Who know's maybe there is a bigger deal in the works still.

Ultimately I am happy D'Ags will get a chance to play. I've never met him, but he strikes me as a good guy who appreciates his chance in the NHL and gives a good effort out on the ice even though the results may not always be there. It's hard for me to not root for guys like that.

I seriously doubt we were worried about trading Matt D'agostini to an in-conference/division team. I'd understand if it were backes or something but D'agostini? really? New jersey was probably the only one willing to give up a 4th i guess.

Basically they traded a decent asset for a late pick. Oh well, I guess something had to be done. Thought he would bring a bit better than that.

Considering the price that Pitt has paid, does anyone feel like we got short end of the stick?

We traded Bryce Salvador for Cam Janssen. I think we should just never negotiate with Lou ever again.

Yeah, not Larry's best trade ever. To be fair though, we had just resigned Jackman, Salvy was a UFA-to-be, and there was no chance of him coming back at that point. Bryce aged better than most expected him to as well. Defensive defensemen werent as highly valued as they have been the past couple of deadlines.
