Proposal (VAN-STL)

Recommended Posts

This is my first proposal, so go easy, please.

To VAN: TJ Oshie, Kevin Shattenkirk

To STL: Mason Raymond, Keith Ballard, Jordan Schroeder, 1st Pick (2013)

These additions will add to the "younger and bigger" model that Gillis is talking about. Oshie grew up in Mt. Vernon, WA State cheering for the Canucks, and he will be as close to home as possible, pleasing him to work hard in the organization.

Raymond would perform well with a relatively physical team surrounding him, so he can play his north and south game without falling down, as he did with the Canucks. Ballard adds to their toughness and can be a great contributor on the power play and penalty kill. He is very capable of laying out big hits and playing on the second pairing. They receive Schroeder, as well.
