Even with Duchene back, Mueller is out and it seems like that David Jones could be moved. There's often seemingly a bottom line motivation at play for them so this isn't a great short-term move but long-term it could be a solid move in solidifying their style of play.

We'll see what else they do but they're probably not going to be traditional sellers. If they were they would have just taken the pick. Not sure they're better but they should be more entertaining. Fringe teams can use that emotion down the stretch provided it's channelled properly.

By high i mean, 27-30, not high value.

St. Louis's pick will be a 25-30. Stewart is having a down year compared to last season plus he'll be an RFA after this year, so his salary may exceed that of Wards.

Perhaps StL. and Hitch will also think they're getting the Joel Ward from last year's playoffs.

Heck we'll throw Mike Knuble in the mix if that will help

No...It doesn't. Why would the Blues buy high and sell low?

Because wideman and ward would help greatly in a cup run?

I don't think the Avs will be happy with Downie. He's too crazy. I'm glad he's out of the east, though.

I would trade a lot more than that for Chris Stewart alone.

Doesn't Downie play with Stamkos? Double barf.

No chance in hell he signs there.

I'm thinking that if Wideman goes, it's to Chicago. Just a guess, but there's my gut feeling.

Really, because the Blues are quite "fat" right now in your fowards ranks. These type of trades are made for one team that's looking at their immediate future such as a playoff run while another team is looking a little further down the road.

Wideman alone gets a number 1 draft choice and more based on what d-men have been going for these last few days. Joel Ward and Mike Knuble provide forward depth which you are currently lacking, along with veteran and playoff experience.

I wonder if the Blues actually believe they have a chance at getting Tarasenko over, its kinda interesting that he even wanted in the NHL draft with his father being a coach in the KHL.

That's a bit of a cheap shot, isn't it? Tarasenko says he's coming over. His father was demoted/fired. We'll see what happens in the off season...Same goes for you guys with Kuznetsov.
