Team: 2020-21 Boston Bruins
Team Explanation
A few trades to fix the scoring issue as well as some minor help on D. Four scoring lines that can skate, three D-pairs with some aggression and puck-moving ability. Expansion protection after this season would be: Bergeron, Marchand, Pastrnak, Coyle, DeBrusk, Smith, Frederic; McAvoy, Carlo, Grzelcyk; Rask
Trades
1.
BOS
  1. Oleksiak, Jamie
Additional Details:
Replaces some of the size lost from Chara in the offseason and Carlo's concussion. Can play either side and is a pending UFA, so he doesn't affect the expansion draft at all.
DAL
  1. 2022 3rd round pick (BOS)
  2. 2021 4th round pick (BOS)
2.
BOS
  1. Schwartz, Jaden ($2,675,000 retained)
  2. McKenzie, Curtis
Additional Details:
Sell high on Ritchie by sending him to a team that needs help on the PP. Schwartz adds 5v5 scoring to a team that badly needs it and is another pending UFA. McKenzie adds some depth to the depleted P-Bruins.
STL
  1. Ritchie, Nick
  2. Lauko, Jakub
  3. 2021 1st round pick (BOS)
3.
BOS
  1. Terry, Troy
Additional Details:
Apparently Terry is on the block in Anaheim, he's a solid secondary scorer who could play up and down the lineup if needed.
ANA
  1. Bjork, Anders
  2. 2022 4th round pick (BOS)
4.
BOS
  1. Palmieri, Kyle ($1,000,000 retained)
Additional Details:
Long been rumored to be heading to Boston. Palmieri is one of the best 5v5 scorers available on the market, right behind Rakell and Forsberg who are probably too expensive for Boston to acquire. Vaak has become somewhat expendable due to Zboril and Lauzon both playing well, Ahcan playing well in the AHL, and Lohrei dominating the USHL. Little bit of retention so Boston can stay cap compliant.
NJD
  1. Senyshyn, Zach
  2. Vaakanainen, Urho
  3. 2021 2nd round pick (BOS)

So wait... you think the Blues would boost their PP by trading Schwartz away to gain Ritchie (to say nothing of the monstrous gulf in their 5v5 worth)? I find it hard to believe anyone could imagine this trade is reasonable. Which is odd, because the other offers are at least in the ballpark or better.

St. Louis probably says no, but I think I’d rather not do that trade anyways and risk losing Ritchie to Seattle and keep our pick and Lauko who’s looked fantastic in the AHL. Every other trade is good. Protect Terry over Smith.

Ritchie is the 3rd piece in the deal. The trade is somewhat solid, the logic in the explanation is not.

That being said. Blues decline, if they were selling they could likely do better. Better off extending him though.

Admittedly any trade involving Ritchie would be an attempt to pull the wool over another GM's eyes, so to speak. No, Ritchie isn't very good at 5v5, but maybe another GM that values power forwards and whose team needs help on the PP could be convinced to swap one of their middle 6 forwards for Ritchie. To be fair though, Schwartz is likely to walk in the offseason and the Blues would still get a decent prospect and 1st out of this trade, as well as the opportunity to keep Ritchie beyond this season if he plays well.

Bjork and Terry are the basically same player. Just opposite shots. A straight swap of the two and a change of scenery and new opportunity would do both of them good. But i’d imagine the Ducks would want a pick or a young d man instead.

The trade only so much as approaches solid if the Blues are set for a total teardown rebuild. In the current context, it's pure lunacy. Your second set of sentences is spot on, though.

1- Exactly.

2- The Blues PP has been humming after they started the season in a slump. I'm not sure how you think it needs so much help as to give into this swindle. They have two strong units+ already. And plenty of "power forward" types, with more on the way.

3- No idea how you got that idea. His extension is in the works now and will probably be done before the playoffs arrive.
