To me this kind of feels like what Pittsburgh did last year...

They're rolling and then they seemingly make a move for the sake of making a move.

Who has ever heard about Carrier before? They haven't given up much also the first is conditional if Miller re-signs OR they at least make it to the conference finals to me the deal is fair and a win-win for both clubs, but the Sabres are running the risk offturning into the oilers = lots of good picks but no veterans to guide them.

Carrier was. 2nd round pick last year.

Halak < Miller

Stewart > Ott

1st >

1st or 3rd >

Honestly I think this move is about getting past the Kings, Quick in particular.

They may not even see them in the playoffs this year but the Blues have had two very good teams the last two seasons but couldn't get past the Kings both times. In both series a big part of that reason was Jonathan Quick. He's in their heads.

Headed into the playoffs with Miller should give them the feeling they won't end up losing games where they've outplayed the other team, which is what happened at times against LA.

Is Stewart really better than Ott though? Both have 11 assists, Ott, works harder, actually back checks, and has thrown 194 hits compared to Stewart's 76. Stewart is younger, bigger, and has 6 more goals.

Ott is also a veteran with a good locker room presence something that can not be said about Stewart.

If Ryan Miller behind Bouwmeester - Pietrangelo isn't scary than I don't know what is.

Blues got stronger quick and this in the long run may benefit Buffalo with the picks as they are trying to rebuild. Good potential for both teams, just quicker results for the Blues and I for one think Milker deserves to have a good team in front of him.

I think Stewart has the potential to be a lot better than Ott. Regardless, let's say they're equally valuable, long term value still went to buffalo

This. The Blues now have a goalie that can steal games all by himself too.
