Edmonton- St Louis

A classic trade between a team that needs more defense and a team that needs more offense.


Yakupov
Klefbom


Pietrangelo

St.Louis obviously does not want to lose their franchise defenseman. But whenever someone thinks of the potential top line of Perron-Tarasenko-Yakupov a few years down the road it can make someone change their mind. This trade makes St.Louis a more well rounded team a few years into the future and even right now will improve their offense. Klefbom can also certainly develop into a top pairing defenseman as well to help replace Pietrangelo.

Edmonton also does not want to give up Yakupov. But when you think about having one of the best defenseman in the league on your team for the next 10+ years it also becomes tempting. Hall-RNH-Eberle Pietrangelo- J.Schultz looks like a POTENTIAL dynasty to me.

If this trade did go through and every player plays to their potential imagine the top line of Perron-Tarasenko-Yakupov play against the top line of Hall-RNH-Eberle.

The Blues will say no pretty easily IMO while the Oilers would easily take this and run.

St. Louis is hurting the team way too much to get a guy who's doesn't have room on the roster to play no matter where he was drafted. Pietro simply isn't available because it's not dealing from strength its destroying one. Value isn't relevant for a trade like this so Klefbom being added in doesn't change it.

Easy no by the Blues.

Something they don't need is more wingers.

Doesn't make sense for St. Louis.

Not in need of any wingers, thank you.

This makes zero sense for St.Louis. I imagine it would be a huge no.

Not sure how Blues fans can say they don't need anymore wingers. Sure you guys have great depth but how could not not need a potential 40 goal 80 point winger. Every team would like to have one on their team.

Contrary to what Oilers management believes, the blueprint to success in the NHL is not a ****ton of forwards and no defense.

Of course every team would like Yakupov. At the expense of a 22 year old #1 defenseman? Not so much.

In a defensive system I think I would rather have a #1 defenseman than a potential 40 goal scorer and a #6 dman.

Especially since we have a chance at the cup next year

I'm not so sure Yakupov would develop into the 40 goal 80 point winger he could be in the Blues system. But as it stands right now he is not an upograde over Oshie, Perron, McDonald, Steen, Stewart, or even Tarasenko (IMO Tarasenko is the more proven player already having played his career vs men).

I would much rather have a franchise dman over a 80 point winger. And so would you.

There is a reason everyone in this thread says the Blues wouldn't make the move. If you are so sold on Klefbom being a top pairing guy why would you not wait for him to develop?

I am not sold due to the potential of Yakupov and Klefbom, while St.louis are also set with their own core. I also believe Klefbom is better than Justin Schultz today.

Pietrangelo isn't going anywhere. Trading him would leave a huge hole on our D. Oh, and the value sucks too.

The only Oiler deal that may have enough value would probably have to include RNH + (which obviously isn't happening) but not sure Edmonton has an add-on defenceman that would be enticing enough to St. Louis to give up Pietro, it's not like they don't need him as well.

They have great potential, but Pietrangelo was already one of the best d-men in the league last year. He has a chance to get much, much better than he already is. Pietrangelo is a franchise d-man.

Edmonton says no. As good as Pietrangelo is, Yakupov could be a 50g scorer and Klefbom could turn out to be a solid #2 as well. Trading a player drafted 1st overall before he even sets foot on NHL ice is foolish.

Unless you are trading him for one of the best defensemen in the league who only happens to be 22 years of age.

Not to mention your team already has Hall, Eberle, Hemsky and MPS on the team at wing and are pretty damn thin on the blueline... If St. Louis was actually down for this, I'm pretty certain that Tambo would pull the trigger rather quickly.

The chances of Tarasenko being better than Yakupov are about 100x higher than Klefbom becoming better than Pietrangelo. For that, this deal makes no sense for the Blues. Hold onto your 22 year old franchise defenseman and take your chances with Tarasenko.
