Blues Interested In Real Hockey Trades

from Sportsnet,

Back in December, St. Louis Blues GM Doug Armstrong said that he didn’t think his team would be in the market for a rental player around this year’s NHL trade deadline. In fact, more than a few NHL GMs have downplayed their potential involvement in the rental market.

Armstrong returned to Hockey Central at Noon on Friday and again suggested he could be active around the deadline without getting into the rental game. It’s no secret the Blues, with 19 goals in their past seven games and the 17th best offence overall, could use some more scoring punch up front. They’ve been linked in rumours to the likes of Max Pacioretty or Mike Hoffman, players with term left on their deals.

“I think we’re going to be active on hockey trades more than rental trades,” Armstrong said. “The reality is if you’re trading an unrestricted free agent at that time you’re going to get what you can get and sometimes that won’t come until the last second.”

Hey Armstrong, the Wings have a guy who is know for scoring a lot late in the season. His name is Tomas. Come get him. It should only cost you a 2nd round pick based on what people are saying.

What a shame it would be to trade Tatar for that.
