No, NTC. And remember Leopold is a rental.

Trading for Leopold was the insurance policy to keep the cost down on a J-Bo deal?

God. Dammit.

He's a Blue now, so I'll root for him and want to be proven wrong. But LA's gonna go through Bouwmeester like crap through a goose. Wrong guy. Want to be proven wrong.

Jackman has a NTC and took a discount because this is his home. He won't be waiving, and we won't be asking him to waive.

I wouldn't be surprised if nobody gets moved before the deadline. If we keep Cole, then I wouldn't be completely shocked to see us move Polįk in the summer.

As much as I love Jacks, he does make sense. If the last trade is a big one he holds more value then the other 3.

...

You know, Philly might be crazy enough to give up Couturier...

Edit: forgot the no movement clause. Perron and Cole for Couturier is certainly a pipe dream

What kind of problems do you anticipate Jaybo having here?

I'd be shocked if they moved Polak over Cole, unless they get a good return for him or because of the contract.

I'd think Elliott would be moved in the off season if he can perform well as to bring up Allen next season to be the 1B.

That's an understatement. Maybe McDonald and Cole traded for a #2 type centre? I wouldn't complain if it will be a 50-60 point scorer still in his 20s.

Perron+Berglund for Briere+Couturier/Schenn. Include Cole or Russell and whatever piece from Philly. Helps salaries and both teams currently.

Also, does this make Leopold strictly a rental?

Suddenly the Blues are in an interesting position with their LD. Russell has to produce some Offense to be effective. Leo is a strong skater with more Offense and size. The Blues could bring him back. JBo is only 29 years old and has scored 15 goals twice in his career. Hopefully he and Pie click. This could really solidify this team.

Polįk has higher trade value and is earning $3.1m next season. We can say that he plays important minutes, but we have now acquired another guy that can do that. Cole would be $1.5m cheaper.

Not "expecting" it, but it is a route we could go in the summer.

For those concerned with the roster space, Jbo will not be added to the roster until after the roster limit is lifted so they do not have to make any moves. However I think they will make another move in the next 40ish hours.

Kelly Chase was saying on NHLN the reason the trade went down during the Blues game was so Jbo's streak of playing in every game for 8+ season would not be ended since he was not on the Blues team when our game started and he was no longer on the Flames when their game started. Of course that could all be BS.

Anybody see the Blues resigning Jay-Bo after his contract is up?

I would think if they're going for a center that Berglund makes the most sense. But I would prefer it be a winger.

No thank you.
The Blues need a gritty, character guy more than a scoring line center.
I'm looking for something on a much smaller scale.

Cole for Niel/Ott/Hall/Torres or something on those lines.

Although if Clowe is really available I might kick the tires there.

I'm with you too, I'm not even going to try and guess what Armstrong is going to do anymore lol. I wonder if he is getting everything done early for a reason.

I don't think Briere currently being on IR helps the Blues.
