I don’t see a centerman available unless we resign Stastny for firstname.lastname@example.org which he might not take. I don’t like the idea of bringing him back because we know how that looks but I also don’t like the idea of trading assets for a guy like ROR. He’s essentially Stastny with a higher cap hit.
I would like to see an upgrade at RW like JVR or Kane but damn they’re gonna be expensive. I like the idea of a Hoffman trade, but we are fairly deep at LW currently.
I would almost bet that Sobotka is for sure going to be moved this offseason. Berglund could get a decent pick in return, but we need him if we dont sign another center. Steen probably won’t allow a trade though. I would move Bouw/Gunnar for just about anything at this point.
Basically I’m glad Armstrong is doing this and not me. As much as a long shot as it is, if JT doesn’t sign here, that puts us 2-3 years farther away from contending. We absolutely cannot trade Thomas. Kid is getting a Bergeron comparison. That’s great news.
As far as the goal situation, I’m one of the 6 people in STL that still believe in Jake, so I’d want to sign a capable backup in free agency and hope Husso can play a few games this year. Hutton will be too expensive so maybe a guy like the Hamburglar could be had for a decent price.
I have no idea.
