I would love nothing more than the B's to acquire CStew from the Blues, lets be honest I think that would put the Bruins over the top and prob get back to the Cup finals.

To Boston: Chris Stewart, Jake Allen

To St. Louis: Tyler Seguin, Ryan Spooner, 1st round draft pick

So, StL fans would a package like this get it done?

Decent value imo but I think St. Louis fans are going to say no because they don't need centres they need LH top 4 defenseman.

Why do the Bruins trade for Allen?

I just would not mind having a better back up to Rask than Khudobin when Thomas packs it in.

I'd do it as a Blues fan. Yeah we lose Stewart, but Seguin is the type of center that will be good enough on both ends of the ice to bump Backes back to RW.

We aren't going to trade Stewart, but not a bad offer.

Is Seguin projected to be a 30+ goal scorer? That is the only way we would consider the deal. We traded for Stewart because we needed a goal scorer.

We could move Backes back to the wing and have Seguin center the 1st line, but this seems more like an EA Sports trade that actually has good value, than something that would actually happen. We have a surplus of right wingers and when Tarasenko comes over, he will only add to the surplus, so anything is possible, but I see us trading D'Agostini or Oshie before Stewart.

Well if you guys need a right winger, I heard the Leafs are looking for a center, you could do Seguin for Kessel.

Boston already over the top last time I checked, and not dealing from weakness. Seguin the new face of the franchise, with unlimited potential. Also anticipated that Spooner will score 30 goals once at NHL level. No need, no value. Seguin untradeable at this point.

Honestly as a Blues fan and a huge Stewart fan that offer would be pretty tempting.

Bruins just won the Stanley Cup with 19yr old inexperienced rookie Tyler Seguin. 3yrs from now Seguin will be more developed than he currently is now, & most of our 'core' players will be just hitting their prime (27yrs old). No deal for B's, our Stanley Cup team plus a developed Seguin & Spooner makes this B's fan

Needless to say Im a big fan of Chris Stewart, he would be a favorite in Boston w/ his bruising style of play & sniping abilities. St.Louis has a heck of a team, I see the Blues & Oilers leading the Western Conference in a few short years.

How is this trade suppose to help the Blues this year? IT doesn't it puts back into the "rebuilding and hoping something special happens" stage of the rebuild. We have a team that will compete with the top teams in the western conference. But if this trade would happen it sets the team back at least another year.

Boston has a good enough team to bring along a talented young player and put him in a position to exceed. The same thing that the Blues will be able to do with Tarasenko next season. But Stewart, is a need not a luxury for the Blues.

Hell no from the Bruins, we don't even need Allen as Rask is young and more proven so it would pretty much be Seguin, Spooner and a first for Stewart.

He was a second round pick last year, he has high upside and might play in the NHL this year, if not he will be back for another year in Junior's.

I really like Chris Stewart but it's an easy no. Stewart is very good but he's not quite the type of guy you trade Seguin, Spooner and a first for. Allen is a solid prospect but he's likely not beating out Rask so he doesn't add a whole lot of value.

Horrible deal for the Bruins. Stewart is a good player, not sure Allen may be overrated, but Seguin is the future of the Bruins and Spooner is their top forward prospect in the opinion of many and on top of that you want a 1st, Big no thanks from the Bruins.

It looks like Allen and Spooner are close to a wash, so Seguin and a 1st for Stewart, seems like overpayment on the Bruins end.

I would love to see the Bruins get Stewart but that price is just too high. I am hoping Seguin will be a better player than Stewart in a year or two and Spooner is the kind of skill guy that will add another dimension to the Bruins in a year or two.

The Bruins don't need to trade the future of the franchise to put them over the top, they are already there and guys like Seguin and Spooner will keep them at or near the top for years hopefully.

St. Louis probably isn't looking to add prospects at the cost of an everyday player either. Even though Seguin may have a breakout year this year, nothing is certain yet.

I have a feeling St. Louis wouldn't be able to turn down this trade but you never know.

I agree it may be an over payment. But it would take that to get the Blues to trade Stewart. And the trade is still a risk for both teams IMO. Seguin has potential to be a 90 point player maybe more. Stewart is proven though as at worst a 28 goal 60 point guy. Stewart should have not problem being a 30-70 guy either IMO. Stewart could be a PPG player also.

I completely agree. When I watch Stewart, I see a bit of Iginla in him, combination of size, speed, and skill. That's why this is more of a realistic video game trade, both teams will be pleased with what they have, as Stewart and Seguin both do not fill needs for the Blues or Bruins, so there is really no point for either team to do it.

Forget about value or needs for a second, but just a quick glance tells you this deal would never happen. Way too big of a risk for either GM to give up those assets. This deal would almost certainly end up getting 1 of them fired if Seguin busts out (or if he doesn't).

Both teams are perfectly happy with those guys and will keep them. Now, if St. Louis is open to discussions about Shattenkirk, let me know!
