I hate the Blues, but boy. They just became a serious threat for the Cup.

Miller makes them Cup contenders this year for sure. And if he re-signs with them, I'd say it's a pretty good deal for the Blues.

 

Buffalo gets a 1st round pick next year, but obviously St. Louis is hoping that's a late first round pick anyways.

The Blues definitely got the better end of this deal. They just got the Sabres captain and their franchise goalie. Looks like we may have left the West right at the perfect time. lol

How much of an upgrade is Miller over Halak?

Hard to say exactly, but it is definitely an upgrade.

Atta boy such highend robbery by Army:

 

Their top prospects still remain with the team and they've just got an elite goaltender and a gritty forward for a very low first rounder. Cup contenders for sure go Blues"!

It's a definite upgrade. But perhaps more importantly, I think it's a huge morale boost for the rest of the team.

I was really hoping that we'd get in on Ott, St. Louis just became formidable...

I actually really like the deal for both teams. Miller wanted out and I think they received solid players in return and picks to use for a future build. You have to admire Doug Armstrong for really going after it this year. I know we're a bubble team this year and the risks associated with trading picks from this position, but it takes me back to the days Holland used to do the same.

I think Miller is a definitely upgrade over Halak.   

 

The West is friggin scary this year.

The Blues just became serious contenders. If the west wins the cup this year I'd want the Blues to win.

Good for Miller, Buffalo has drastically turned into hockey-Siberia the last few years.

Good for them, Ive never had much of a problem with teams like the Blues, Sharks, or Wild, so its been fun watching them in the West, especially possibly destroying the Ducks and Hawks.  So any moves they make to dethrone the Hawks and Ducks, Im all for it,

The curse of the captain continues the last 3 three captains have all been traded after a few months. The only remaining veterans are Ehroff and Myers now.

 

So their rebuild is going the Edmonton road very quickly

The Blues just made the move that teams that want to and can win the SC make. There is the big difference between us and them. They are there, ready to win it all. We have work to do to get back to that level.
