[Proposal] Blues and Panthers

Recommended Posts

With Mitchell and Gubrannson gone Ekbad and Kulikov are there only top 4 dmen. The others should be in the minors or top 6. If they want to be a playoff contender they need anouther top 2 dmen. For the Blues Backes Shattenkirk could be gone next season. They could get some cheaper options and possibly get someone in free agency. Ok here is some things what would have to playout. Blues have 14 million in cap space to re-sign all there players. Backes could get 7-8million if he headed to free agency and plus. Schwartz should get 5.5million and plus. But a lot of there minor guys have to get re-signed. They would cost around 9 million. Shattenkirks deal ends 2017-2018. Its either Backes or Shattenkirk or neither because of this trade and get some more guys in free agency for cheaper. Same goes to the Panthers. 


Blues trade Shattenkirk to Florida for Bjugstad and Kulikov and most likely  a 1st or 2 2nds.


Kinda replacement for Backes and Shattenkirk. They would save around 8 million when they traded for Bjugstad and Kulikov. They have around 5 million in cap space and could get a cheaper option like Frans Nielson or a dman like Russel or Demers.

Florida will have around 10 million in cap space after signing guys. They could get Demers/Golgoski/Hamhuis/Russell on D to help out or even 2. 

Or a center in Neilson/Staal. Trochek can easily play 2nd line. 


I know its unlikely and I know that but its just fun to think about stuff like this. Try and make your own trades for Shattenkirk to be a cat if u want.

I think it could work. IMO Kulikov and Bjustad is enough to get him. Adding picks would be an overpayment and something JB would do. 


But I just have a feeling that Shattenkirk is going to the Coilers for RNH. 

 blues wont give him up for rnh  guys to soft i dont see this happening
