TSN just posted that Nieminen was involved in the trade, as well as Barriball and a first. Again, that's too much for the Wings to try and match or beat. Our farm system isn't that deep. I don't mind that Kenny didn't overbid at all. We need youth and size, and those guys get drafted in the first round.

You do realize that our "first" round picks are usually no higher than 25th? Given that we have been one of the top five teams in the league for the past few years, our first rounders are very low.
"And? If I did, I probably would have been a fighter, so what?"

Who knows; maybe you would realize that enforcers in hockey are critical to a teams chemistry and overall success?

Barribal needs to get much bigger but he has the most points on the best college team in the country. He is also only a frosh.

He and Erik Johnson will be in STL for the Frozen Four.

Overall good deal. Now 3 first round draft picks. I might be most excited about the Boyes acquisition.

go blues.

St Louis is not a good place for Ville Nieminen.
It's only in the playoffs where Nieminen seems to be playing well.
And with STL not going to make it (maybe next year either),his only "talent" just got wasted.
