I really hope the Blues make a trade soon. This team cannot score, and they lack a game-changer. They need a legit goal-scorer, which is something that EVERY good team has. We don't have a superstar, and it hurts us. Maybe this group of forwards we have isn't as good as we thought. I think we need to bring in somebody to help us and ignite our powerplay.

But who is available?

Someone like Thomas Vanek would be ideal.

I'd be willing to trade a 1st, Backes and Colaiacovo for Vanek.

I don't see why Buffalo would trade Vanek. Need to think of teams who need to trade a good player for one reason or another. Thinking of teams like San Jose, Tampa Bay, New York Rangers, etc.

Not a trade but....what about putting on a full court press to get Forsberg if he decides he's healthy enough to play? Can you imagine putting some of our forwards with Foppa? Maybe having him around would help Berglund take the next step forward.

No way in hell he'd come here. Rule that out immediately.

I'd maybe look towards Pittsburgh, who is having trouble keeping defensemen healthy. Considering our surplus of defensemen, we could perhaps swing them a pretty good one in exchange for a mid-career veteran+pick/prospect.

You're right the chances are slim to none plus it looks like the Av's have way more cap space than I thought they did(Sakic retirement I guess). I was hoping the usual suspects would be close enough to the cap we could at least stand a chance by offering a bit more money. Oh well it was a nice thought for my lunch break.


What winger(s) were you thinking about from Pittsburgh?

You know, I'm not entirely sure, but I'd love to have a Kunitz on the team. He's hard-nosed and works hard very night. Seems like a great guy and leader. Nice replacement for Tkachuk, and could serve as a motivator for the team.

Blues & Carolina

I think this would work out for both teams.

Blues:
Backes
Tkachuck
1st Round Draft Pick

Carolina:
Staal
Cole

I think this helps both teams....tell me what you think...

I offered like Berglund,Petro,junland and a 1st for Staal and the Carolina guys were ready to stone me....which I thought was an overpayment anyways, they are unreasonable.

And what do other fanbases think when they make offers for Perron/Berglund/Oshie/etc. and we react?

Staal is their franchise player, think in terms of what you'd want a team to offer for EJ. I don't think I'd move Staal for that package, the most proven guy there is Berglund and that's not really saying much.

And +1 to the drugs comment. I'm concerned that Canes fans might find this thread.

As said, Carolina just laughs.

The problem with getting Staal is that we would have to overpay with talent to get him. Then when he is here, we have to overpay him on his contract.

A great player, but not one that would make sense for the Blues to persue just now.

Anyone know how LA is doing on defense? Maybe we could put together a package around Colaiacovo to get Frolov. I haven't been paying much attention to LA this season, though, so I don't know if they need any more defensemen.

With Carolina, I would guess something around Whitney for Weaver or Cola.

But to be honest, I think w/ Steen coming back, the Blues will sit for 2 weeks and see how things pan out. Steen adds some o to our team and would help out the 4th line.

I don't see us making any trades. Next transaction the Blues make is either calling someone up or firing Murray. Simply put, we have few bargaining chips others want, and the ones they want we don't want to give up.

Of those names, only Boyes has a chance of being traded. But to get him the return is going to have to be very good. What your offering won't cut it.

Definitely, that conditional pick seals it. Well thought-out proposal, mate.

Yeah Boyes + D-man for Kaberle or Boyes+ for Kessel is about the only trades the Blues would probably go for, and the Leafs would never let that happen.

It seems Toronto would be looking to recoup a 1at rounder in any deal. I like Brian Burke, however, that move seemed somewhat shortsighted. The leafs did get a young centerpiece in Kessel though which is a good consolation.

I am no Brewer basher...I dont know enough to bash a player, but Andy Strickland makes some good points about Brewer and his tradeability and his failure in mentoring young Alex Pietrangelo:

Quote:
Brewer comes with a decent number at just over $4 million and can give a team some serious minutes. There aren’t too many guys out there who can play 25 minutes a night, kill penalties, play against top players, and give you the last 15-20 seconds on the power play. I’m not suggesting Brewer as a PP guy but if necessary he can give you minimal PP time.

Part of the equation on how long Pietrangelo stays will be whether or not the Blues are able to move a defenseman. Potential injuries will also factor in as well. The Blues are well protected with players like Tyson Strachan, Jonas Junland, and Brendan Bell all healthy and prepared to step in.

Quietly, there are ceartain individuals that would like to see Brewer take Pietrangelo under his wing and groom the kid a little bit. I understand not every veteran player has this type of personality, but Brewer is the Captain and showing this type of leadership comes with the responsibility.

For some reason Pietrangelo's play seems to drop off when playing with Brewer.

You know I agree with that. Now the first few games I gave them the benefit of the doubt since Brewe was getting back up to speed. But Brewer needs someone who can cover those two or three stupid little mistakes a game that can really get us in trouble. Put Bewer and Polak together and let Sydor play with Pietrangelo.

Everyone is quick to think that Colaiacovo is gonna be dealt, Carlo has played well since returning from injury.

The thing that bugs me about Strickland is that he has stuck up for Brewer all year and now he takes a shot @ him, not too mention he's taken several shots at Andy Murray,Brad Boyes,Paul Kariya....Kinda funny to hear that Kelly Chase and Tony Twist dumped him over the boards Friday night @ the Alumni game
