More on the Oilers – Are the looking at Jake Allen and/or Thomas Greiss

At this time last week, no doubt everyone thought Edmonton was going to make a goalie move. The Oilers didn’t for two reasons. First, they just didn’t believe what they could get would really solve their problems long-term.

St. Louis Blues looking to make changes

The St. Louis Blues haven’t been overjoyed with Swedish centre Patrik Berglund or winger David Perron this season, but they might not investigate trading either player until the summer.

They could move Alexander Steen or rookie Jaden Schwartz to centre for Berglund, who’s a restricted free agent July 1.

I thought Berglund might go for Calgary Flames defenceman Jay Bouwmeester, but if the Blues just got Jordan Leopold from the Buffalo Sabres for two draft picks (they plan on seeing how he’ll look with Kevin Shattenkirk, rather than Wade Redden), that likely means they’re out of the Bouwmeester sweepstakes.

Blues looking for a d-man

Speaking of the Blues, sources around the league say GM Doug Armstrong is on the lookout for a left-handed, top-four type blueliner, a guy who can play with either Alex Pietrangelo or Kevin Shattenkirk on either of the top two pairings.

Should Blues Consider Stastny ?

There’s some talk of Colorado maybe looking to move center Paul Stastny. Reports suggest he could be expendable with the addition of Ryan O’Reilly.

We’ve asked this question for several years, how would Stastny look in St. Louis?

Obviously he comes with a contract that pays him $6.6 million for one more season. That’s a lot for a budget team like the Blues and obviously some dollars would need to be shipped out to make room for this type of contract.

Blues may bring Arnott back to help

Perhaps one way to solve new problems is with old answers, literally and figuratively.

With Vladimir Tarasenko, Alex Steen and Andy McDonald out of the lineup with injuries, with veteran leader Jamie Langenbrunner out for the season — and with just 27 games remaining in the regular season — the Blues are considering bringing back center Jason Arnott.
