Trade o' the Day

Since we're on the road to St.Louis I thought I'd bring up a couple of Blues in todays installment of possible trades.

The Blues have a plethora of players that could pose a top six upgrade on the wing.  Andy McDonald and David Perron are still battling injury, in their absence Alex Steen, Matt D'Agostini and the newly acquired Jason Arnott have filled in nicely.  Chris Stewart is off to a slow start with just two goals in eight games but you have to think he's a permanent fixture on the wing in St. Lou with the bounty they paid to acquire him.

TJ Oshie signed a one year 2.35 million dollar deal in the offseason.  He'll be a UFA come July and like Turris is a pass-first player.  He's average almost half an assist per game for his career which has been mired by injuries and a reputation as a rebel.  He's off to a slow start with four points in eight games coming in to tonight and had been quietly rumored to be available last year.

Whether St. Louis would St.Louis take a prospect or pick and Mason Raymond in return for him is debatable.

Oshie, from Mt. Vernon, Washington would serve another benefit alongside Kess and Booth as he would keep the title of American Express Line intact.
