Central Division: Active Early Summer In St. Louis

Today, we’ll continue looking around the Central Division as the dust continues to settle from free agency opening. We’ve already looked at the moves made by the Nashville Predators.

The St. Louis Blues haven’t added much via free agency, but two trades during the NHL draft will impact their look on the ice this season.


  • June 23 – traded forward Ryan Reaves and 2nd round pick (#51) in the 2017 NHL Draft to Pittsburgh for forward Oskar Sundqvist and a 1st round pick (#31) in the 2017 NHL Draft
  • June 23 – traded forward Jori Lehtera with 1st round pick (#27) in the 2017 NHL Draft and a first round pick int he 2018 NHL Draft to Philadelphia for forward Brayden Schenn.

    I’ve always like B.Schenn. He plays with an edge and can score and will be a pain in the butt to play against. He makes the Blues better.

    Reaves – maybe addition by subtraction for the Blues.

    if the rumour is true about Hossa moving to Carolina, well, he was truly upset in his interview after the playoffs about Coach Q bumping him to the 3rd line when he was off to his best start in years!!!

    Ernie—I wondered where they were getting this from.

    Hey Ernie: Jaeckel has me blocked on Twitter because I called him out on something a couple years ago.

  • July 5, 2017 at 2:19 pm

    That’s awesome Dave. Good work!

    Thanks Dave someone needs to, Jaeckel is no one worth following or listening to what-so-ever

    I hope Coach Q has an open mind this year. He needs to put rookies in a position to succeed and stop with the dog house routine. GUSTAFSON should have played the entire season with the HAWKS not KEMPNY!!! And let someone as talented as SCHMAULTZ play center or else he will be a bust in CHICAGO like TEUVO!!!

    Thanks, Ernie and SSHM. JJ is just a dumbass, to put it nicely. Then again, that’s an insult to the true dumbasses.
