Had no idea Jerabek was even on the Oilers
Blues have depth issues on defense?
Signed on August 20th, traded little more than a month later.
In a span of two years this guy has been a part of 4 organizations, won a stanley cup and has only played 36 + 2 games in the NHL.
why did we do this
No, this is bizarre.
We have 8 guys, and Mikkola & Walman have been pretty impressive through camp if we needed a short term call up.
Was he not on waivers?
Depth on defense in minors? Another trade incoming from the Blues? Seems odd
Maybe Bouwmeester not ready yet? Bortuzzo is suspended right now. Gunnarsson isn't cleared to play games yet I don't think.
EDIT: My bad forgot about the Walman and Mikkola. Strange move then.
I guess San Antonio needs some more defense
Do you mean San Antonio?
I’m guessing Dunn is a little more banged up than it seems?
no way, unless they believe he has some untapped potential it makes no sense
butler and lindholm are there on the left side, solid top 4 and good enough to be callups as the 9th-10th option
mitch reinke, jake walman, wotherspoon, laleggia is back to defense can all play short term in the nhl as well at this point
blues already have insane depth on d, logjammed even
He's ass, I'll take the 6th.
This makes no sense unless some other defenseman are going to be moved out. The blues have a lot of defensive depth so I’m truly confused.
Sighs..... yes. Autocorrect has turned into a troll..... even though I typed Antonio...it changed to Jose.
But seriously real head scratcher here.
The trade makes sense because Jerabek cleared waivers, so he can now play up to 10 NHL games or spend less than 30 days on STL roster without requiring waivers again. They give up a future 6th to get some organizational depth on defense.
From EDM's standpoint, sure it's a free asset, but there's an opportunity cost in that they signed someone who didn't pan out as an NHL defender for them, and wasted time with him occupying a pre-season spot. Had they not signed him, they don't get a 6th, but maybe they sign someone different who pans out and gives them more value than a 6th by being on their NHL roster this year.
Obviously, it's still fine from EDM's side of things, I just want to point out that it isn't as simple as "EDM gets free asset for player signed a month ago". There's such a thing as opportunity cost.
Signed for 1 mill a month ago
Wasn't he waived two days ago?
He was pretty bad in camp and soundly outplayed by Garrison, who has most likely earned a contract and will be our 7th D.
Benn for a 5th please?
He was horrible in the games played, thanks for the 6th.
How on earth did we get ANYTHING for him? Holy cow.
