Stastny feeling the "Blues"

Blues Acquire Forward Yan Stastny From Boston In Exchange For A Fifth Round Pick In 2007 Draft

ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues’ President John Davidson announced today the team has acquired forward Yan Stastny from the Boston Bruins in exchange for the Blues fifth-round pick in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

Stastny, 24, has split the season with the Boston Bruins and Providence of the American Hockey League. The 5’11, 175-pound center has appeared in 21 games with Boston, collecting a pair of assists and has skated in 11 games with Providence, recording 12 points (three goals, nine assists).

He made his NHL debut with the Edmonton Oilers against the St. Louis Blues on March 1, 2006 in Edmonton. He played in three games for the Oilers before being traded to Boston on March 9, 2006. With the Bruins, he tallied four points (one goal, three assists) in 17 games. The Quebec City, Quebec native is the son of former Blue Peter Stastny and was originally Boston’s eighth round selection, 259th overall, in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.

Usually, a move like this is a precurser to something bigger happening. The only rumors persisting are Aucoin and Brewer. There was a small spike in Evgeni from St.Louis and Ilya from Anahiem for goalies... but again, it's a sellers market and I doubt a goalie will come without a smartin' price tag.

Agreed. I don't know what's coming but sending down lashoff in the favor of a professionnal AHL'er and Stastny to St-Louis only to free cap space.. I'm not sure about Aucoin but i think B.Stuart will be involve...
