In response to jmwalters' comment:
Nothing is certain but there has been nothing to suggest Yzerman is shopping him. I mentioned this before but it is about as likely as PC shopping Bergeron. St. Louis is an important cog for that team, is a heart and soul guy, and is currently signed to a cap-friendly contract. Very unlikely to be moved unless someone is prepared to offer a crazy return...
I don't agree with your Bergeron comparison. MSL turns 38 in June, Bergeron is 10 years younger. If we were talking about Stamkos, the argument works, but it appears that Tampa is well on it's way towards a youth movement, whether it has been forced upon them because of injuries, standings, coaching changes, etc.... All of the things you say about Marty are true. However, this is now Steven's team, not Marty's or Vinnie's. Is it unlikely, yes! As Bruins fans we can surely hope that Stevie Y send him the Bruins way. By the way, has the luster of Stevie Y already worn off? I can remember everyone all over this guys jock, including many here at bdc, touting him as the next big GM.
Good points. They wouldnt trade St Louis for 100 cents on the dollar. We'd have to blow them away.
I'd consider Subban , 1st rd, 2nd rd.
On second thought, I'd do it.
Because...St Louis would be a line 1 winger on this team for this year and the two that follow. He would instantly cure our PP woes.
