    I would do that, although some of my fellow Blues fans would disagree. There is the possibility that Fabbri returns to form and becomes a 60pt player on Crosby's wing.

    I like a lot of Pittsburgh's players but still haven't seen a trade that makes sense for the Blues yet. The closest thing we could do is something like Sobotka/Walman for Brassard.

    No to Fabbri for Rust. Even with the injury, Fabbri's ceiling is still way higher. Not taking that risk.

    Gunnarsson will be back around the start of the season, not Christmas.

    I'd hate to give up yet another 1st for a non-over the top return.

    I thought he had the ACL surgery in the middle of April? If so, I could see 6 months for the graft to take, then another month to work out and try and get back in shape, so I suspect it will not be Christmas like you said, but more towards the end of October or early November. I would be shocked if he was ready to go at the beginning of the season, but I hope so as this will allow the Blues to be active on the trade front with him or JBo.

    I will never understand Pens fans trying to trade Brassard this off-season.

    He was injured when he underperformed in the playoffs, you dopes. Try to maintain a memory longer than a fruit fly.

    Don't think the value is all that bad aside from that. Surprised Sobotka's on the list - is he on the outs there?

    Yeah, he will probably is.

    The way that our GM talks about Thomas makes it pretty clear that we think he's making the roster next season, and he isn't going to be thrown into the top-6. So that should give us Steen and Thomas on the third line.

    Then it's the debate over whether we should just move one of Berglund and Sobotka, or move both. We have too many bottom-6 guys and too many LH shots.

    I'd be curious to hear what Pitt fans think of a deal around Brassard + conditional pick (condition being he re-signs in St. Louis) for Sobotka + Schmaltz/Walman.

    Honestly think such a deal could be beneficial for both teams. :dunno:

    i don't like it. i was pretty hard on Brassard during the playoffs but i wanna see what he can do healthy with a full offseason with the Pens under his belt.

    No thanks. Pretty easily too. We paid a heavy price for Brassard. He looked a little uncomfortable but that should change next season. We are happy to keep him. There are players I would trade him for but not on the Blues (TB for Johnson or Miller for example)

    I agree I think Joel is going to be a main peace of the Defensive core. The guy is the best at doing the blocking and playing defense. Alex is the more offense style. Joel is the tough guy part of the group. I don't think he will be moved more so with so many of the current starters being free agents in the next off season. Bo, Gunnar, and Bortuzzo. I think the Blues will build more around Petro, Joel, Colton, and Dunn. Can see Bortuzzo back because he cheap.

    Yes. I’m high on Simon. Not sure if I’d do it straight up looking at our left side D a year+ from now

    Edmundson is basically ekholm without the national notoriety thanks to the cup run last year.

    Stud shutdown top4 D with size and mobility, while also being 24. Doubtful he moves for anything below a massive overpayment

    Sign and trades don't happen anymore. If I am the Blues, I am not paying you for something I could do myself (negotiate a contract with Brassard). In fact, I'd prefer to do it myself. I'd pay a very little bit extra for the right to discuss re-signing and to have a deal in plae before the trade. But that does not carry anywhere near the same value as a fully extended player, or what you are asking for.

    Bouwmeester will not be re-signed unless he takes a significant pay cut and a bottom pairing role. Gunnarsson will not be re-signed. As stated, Our Top 4 is Edmundson-Pietrangelo and Dunn-Parayko going forward. Dunn is the most likely to be traded of the group, but even he would take severe overpayment. I'd honestly put Edmundson's value fairly close to Parayko. He is better defensively, although not as good offensively and without the upside.

    Doubt the Duchene-Turris deal happens without an extension for Turris being talked about and shook on in advance.

    True. As I said, discussions before the trade and a hand-shake deal are fine. But an actual signed contract and then a trade where the trading team gets value for a 7 year player is very rare. Ottawa barely got fair value for a rental Turris, much less a signed one.
