First Eric Brewer, then Jay McClement and Erik Johnson; most recently Brad Boyes. Hopefully there's a contender out there that need a mascot sans trousers.
While another thunderstorm blew through St. Louis last night, the Blues traded Brad Boyes to Buffalo for a 2nd round pick in this year's draft. That gives the Blues five picks in the first three rounds of the draft.
According to FSN Midwest's Darren Pang, Barret Jackman just realized that he indeed does have a complete no-trade clause and he won't be going anywhere. Pang Chung also said this morning on TSN that Doug Armstrong doesn't expect much and that as of now all is quiet with the Blues.
Much like last night's third period, expect there to be plenty of activity involving the Blues, but with nothing going all the way through and the Blues having a zero in their column at the 2:00 Central Time deadline.
In the name of shameless self promotion, I'll be on with Rob and BJ Rains on 1380 AM (sportsradio1380.com) in the 1:00 hour talking about the trade deadline.
Use this as your GDT, or TDT, and we'll keep up as best we can with anything that happens.
Trade updates, re-signings, and witty banter after the jump.
