Boyes has been playing better lately. I would not be opposed to trading him but I'm not familiar with what you guys have available.
You are right though...Oshie is considered untouchable. Many fans will get angry if you mention his name in the same sentence as 'trade'...and an actual trade would cause riots downtown lol.
I think it will take until the trade deadline to know if the Blues are really buyers or sellers. They still have a shot at the playoffs as it stands. And are finally pretty healthy.
Also Boyes is signed for next season. This years crop of free agents is pretty bad so I don't know if it's worth trading him for prospects or picks. If Boyes keeps playing like he has the last month or so he may be as good or better then any free agent available outside Richards.
