Will the Blues move Shattenkirk for scoring help?

St. Louis Blues defenceman Kevin Shattenkirk could be on the block, while the Anaheim Ducks are a team to watch in the Jonathan Drouin sweepstakes, TSN Senior Hockey Reporter Frank Seravalli writes.

    Hopefully people come back to this site and provide input again, I used to love the debates. If Blues are debating whether to bring Backes back, im sure they would love another big body. With Toronto probably going to be top 5 in the draft especially with JVR out. I think this offseason, Shattenkirk for JVR deal could happen. As much as I love JVR, I dont want to end up like Edmonton and make sure we’d have that solid foundation at defense with Shattenkirk-Reilly if we’re going to miss out on chychrun. Although if chychrun and puljajarvi are still available i would definitely go with puljajarvi. He is an unbelievable player and will be a good center. I do think nylander and marner will convert to wingers. Another guy I would love to get is william nylanders brother alex. He showed well in the juniors and would be cool to have both brothers with there skill. If we have william and alex nylander, marner, timashov, kapanen, bracco for prospects.. thats alot of skill there, add kadri to the mix and thats a very skilled forward group with a future defence of Shattenkirk-reilly, phaneuf-gardiner, harrington-polak/marincin/whoever … thats not a bad start. All these trades and rumors lately have got me excited.

      Ok gonna tackle your points in order. Lol.

      1) I think to maintain people here the threads have to keep coming. If they are open for a maximum of 2 weeks then every 13 days there at least has to be a post of “Comment on your trade proposals and rumours”. That way people won’t leave and get discouraged.

      2) Shattenkirk for JVR is good. Nice hockey deal though we could definitely include rentals for picks in the trade and I think I would make it a must to ensure we maximize the pending UFAs.

      3) Puljujarvi all the way. I have him as my 2nd overall pick in the draft so if he falls to us GRAB HIM!! Would love Alex if we are below the top 5 (lottery or winning streak).

      And for my contribution. HOLY JOHANSEN FOR JONES. I completely expected Johansen to go for Josi and a 1st or something. That was unexpected. I think Columbus won the deal but Nashville just strictly got better while Columbus filled a hole by making another so I think the deal works for both teams.

        I totally agree with you, that was huge. I think Nashville was so good on the back end that they were able to give them the potentially better/more valued player for johansen. But they filled the void at center and there defense are still great. Great hockey move for nashville, columbus comes away with the better player but nashville comes away with the better team. Im not worried about nashvilles troubles right now, if rinne figures it out, they will be a good hockey team.

          Exactly. Hard to complain if you are either team. Top centre, strong deep defence, elite goaltender. If they can be consistent then they would be scary.
