The Tampa Bay Lightning are pleased to announce the acquisitions of forwards Andy McDonald and Stefan Della Rovere from the St. Louis Blues in exchange for Mike Lundin the Bolts 2011 1st round pick. McDonald, who will be 34 by the start of next season, will play a top-six role for the Bolts and give the Bolts another offensive weapon. Stefan Della Rovere, who will likely fill in on the third or fourth line, is a pesky player with leadership qualities.
"We are happy to have Andy and Stefan here in Tampa Bay. We feel that these two will be integral pieces in our drive to take the next step this coming season. We are committed to building a winner here and are excited to add these two pieces moving forward. We wish Mike all the best in St. Louis."
BLUES ACQUIRE LUNDIN, FIRST ROUND PICK
The St. Louis Blues have acquired Mike Lundin, along with Tampa Bay first round pick in this years draft. In exchange the Bolts got Andy McDonald along with prospect Stefan Della Rovere.
We feel that Lundin is one of the most underrated defenseman in the league, and can step in and play in all situations. We were looking for a first round pick. We wanted Andy to go for the cup for the last time and a chance for Della Rovere to do what he does best. The Blues are now looking for top six depth.
Buffalo's trade block has not changed. Looking for a top 6 center. Willing to move top 6 wingers (Ennis, Boyes, Stafford), young dmen (Butler, Sekera, Weber), picks and prospects. Will put together a very good package for a 1st line center.
