Hey, Blues fan here, and I was wondering if PHX would be somewhat interested in Andy McDonald? STL loves him and so do I, but the Blues need a partner for Pietrangelo, and no, I'm not asking for Yandle because I know McDonald by himself is not worth Yandle. So, just a friendly question I'd like to ask and bring some attention to.
That's the problem with Schlemko, Summers, Stone, Rundblad, and Gormley. Whichever of thw bunch we decide to trade, we will not get proper value for. None have been showcased enough to be worth what they should be worth.
I almost say keep the one way contracts up at first to earth the season. Show off Schlemko and Summers for a month or two and then deal them once the league has seen how solid these super cheap young defenseman are. Marc Methot isn't really a more effective player but he's way older and way more expensive.
That Schlemko/Klesla pairing was great to start last season. Maybe give that pairing another shot for a little while and then trade Schlemko?
The only reason I think we would trade Schlemko for less then a second round pick is because we are so deep at defense. He is definately good enough to fetch a second round pick otherwise. I think most teams would love to have him. Coyote fans are just spoiled. That's a good thing.
