The Fourth Period isn't very credible, but they threw out two rumors:

1. Toronto may inquire into Horcoff, but we'd have to take back Liles in return.
2. If Toronto wanted Gagner, they'd have to give us Morgan Rielly.

If we can get Gagner signed to a value contract then he will be an untouchable in my books. Of course, given his shooting percentage this season and the ludicrous signings lately, those odds seem narrow.

I am getting kind of sick of every team making trades except for the Oilers... They are most likely waiting to see where they are at come the deadline but these games right now are more important. They need help now and can't afford to "wait and see"

Solid pickup by STL. They usually split up each of Petro/Shattenkirk/Polak so they can anchor each of the pairings. Leopold brings a perfect complement to either of those top-2 pairings. When Ian Cole is healthy again they can have some decent pairings:

Petro-Leopold
Shattenkirk-Jackman
Polak-Cole

Once Cole comes back that blue line will be un****withable

A second and conditional 5th, not a bad return for Buffalo

St. Louis Blues ‏@StLouisBlues 10m

The Blues have acquired defenseman Jordan Leopold from Buffalo for a second round and conditional fifth round pick. http://*******/XOTqsT

define every team please... so far the only team to add anyone is pittsburgh, the obvious sellers have started selling, edmonton is not an obvious seller at the moment

and if they want to add without really subtracting they will have to hold onto hemsky... that makes our really only trading chips whitney (wont fetch much) and our first rounder... would be more inclined to say we will be sellers atm

@MarkLazerus
Source tells me #Blackhawks were in discussions with #Isles for Lubomir Visnovsky before he re-signed. Looks like Bowman is targeting D.

They made two trades so far this season. Fistric and Brown.

and:

@JoshRimerHockey
I'm hearing Blues not done. They're looking for one more upgrade on defense.

And:

@RogMillions
Had heard #Blues would go to Leopold if they could not ante up for Bouwmeester. Tight budget in St. Louis

Well, there's your comparable for Whitney in Leopold. Underwhelming (but expected) return with the two picks.

Except Whitney has been playing excellent lately, and from everything I've heard from the Sabres board, Leopold has been awful. Still hoping Whitney can fetch something more than this.

I think Whitney would be able to fetch more than Leopold as well.

[QUOTE=jumptheshark;62755579]Can someone shoot me now. That idiot oiler blogger for hockeybuzz has some how gotten given the golden nod for being a legit source is suggesting Smid and a pick to Calgary for Jay Boy.

Next time we have a discussion about how this site has changed over the years and I try to defend it by saying not really--remind me that here a kid with no connections to anything is considered a legit source.[/QUOTE

Add posters quoting Willis trade speculation and both say a lot.

While I'm here Hemsky for Crosby. Get on it Tambellini!

And yet Krueger still felt it prudent to sit him out against Nashville last week.

So Leopold gets a 2nd and a 5th... you all think Whitney will get better than that? I personally doubt it.

He's not going to get a 1st... so it really doesn't matter if he gets something like a 2nd and a 4th... that really isn't "better".

Hopefully they get some kind of roster player back for Whitney rather than just picks... can't really see what type of decent roster player they'd get though... hopefully a bigger body for the bottom 6.. someone who can hit and has some speed.

Ideally a Mike Brown with better hands... but where would a player like that come from and why would the team give him up?
