I get that Vanek at half salary is a big deal and all, but this seems pretty bad for St. Louis.

Terrible for STL, especially with the 1st added

I think the Blues are a significantly better team after this trade.

Value might be there I guess, but it would be a terribly shortsighted move by St. Louis to do this kind of deal.

I'm fine adding a 2nd Round pick to the Buffalo package also.

Pretty bad for only 1 year of Vanek. Would have to be some sort of extension in place beforehand. Even then I doubt STL would do it.

No thanks. I thought it was bad before I saw the 1st.

too much from St Louis for 2 rentals

Make it simple

Vanek(50%) for Oshie (you can tack on some quantity here because we all know HF loves quantity)

Tarasenko and the 1st is what I'd want back if we simplified the deal.

Which the Blues would never do for one year of Vanek.

I don't know how many times we have to say no to these deals. I don't even know why they are so popular.

Value is probably close, but we don't need an edgy guy like Ott to help us, our team can handle itself just fine.
I need to give Tarasenko 2 full seasons before ever considering letting him go.
Oshie is Oshie, he would make every team a better product on the ice.

That's a bad deal for St. Louis.

I think something around Vanek with salary withheld is intriguing, but the Blues probably won't include Tarasenko, and they haven't had a 1st round pick 2 of the last 3 years...so that's a particularly painful price. Its not inconceivable that they could be getting that kind of production from Tarasenko in a year or two.

SALARY CAP.

Blues wouldn't be able to resign Vanek next season. He would make huge $$$ on the UFA market, something the Blues wouldn't be able to match.

And while he is better the Tarasenko now and maybe in the next year or two, but that is a maybe, VT is on a entry level deal. And that is a huge deal.

Finally, Vanek would be a 1 year luxury that isn't needed since we resigned Stewart for a contract that is 2 years and about 2+++ million cheaper. And while Vanek is better then Stewart, he isn't 2 million and 1 year better.

I think Vanek can be moved at the deadline for a late first rounder and a couple of mid level prospects (same a Jaybo).

No interest in Ott. I wouldn't trade one single piece of that package for Vanek. It just doesn't make sense for St Louis. Buffalo should find another team to trade with if that is the return they want as they will not be getting it from the Blues.
