This makes St Louis the cup favorite IMO. They lose a little depth on the wings but now down the middle they are unmatchable.

Pretty much a good deal for both teams. St Louis looks like a beast and the Sabres should be able to flip Halak and Stewart for a few 2nds or 3rds to add to their impressive stockpile of picks.

I don't like to hate on other posters ever, but it's annoying when someone who never posts, comes on and starts a thread just because they want to break news. It's like, it's not really a big deal, and we could probably keep it in the trade deadline thread. But it is a big trade. 

 

On that note: poor Jaroslav Halak, things were so swell...

I like this for both sides. Buffalo already has a really strong prospect pool and it should be interesting to see if they move Moulson, Stewart, and/or Halak still.

He'll probably just get traded to another team in playoff contention.  Minnesota is most likely since Harding is probably done for the season.

I come on this site everyday, just don't post a lot. It doesn't matter, it's a blockbuster trade and it deserves its own thread.

Blues are my favorite WC team. Would be sweet and a breath of fresh air to see a team not named Chicago, Pittsburgh or Boston win the cup

Ott may end up being the key player in the deal, seeing as the Blues were good in goal all along.

Ott adds a bit more bite to the team. He and Morrow will be a couple of tough customers to deal with.

I love the Blues as well, but that's because they've been so generous to us!  They gave us Stevens, draft picks.... sheesh, they're the gift that keeps on giving.  :thumbsup:
