    That's exactly what St Louis needs.

    They got ROR for a collection of mediocre assets, but will they be able to do the same with Bobrovsky? Or, will they have to pay Kyrou or Thomas?

    Islanders makes the most sense. They got the capspace from missing out on Tavares, Lou always gets his goalie, and Russians love New York.

    I think that is an excellent possibility. As you say, Lou gets his goalie. He is also willing to pay for a goalie.

    But if the Islanders think he wants to go to NY in the offseason, why not just get him for free?

    I wouldn’t want him. He’s a terrible goalie when it matters. And right now he’s not even winning in the regular season. In my opinion he’s a primed for a free agent contact that whoever signs him is going to deeply regret.

    They probably will. I can't imagine the Isles needing to trade for him this season. Not many goalies work out when going to a new team at the deadline. The value of familiarity with team structure and individual habits of defencemen are often overlooked. I'd be weary acquiring him mid-season.

    Why? Who would be better than someone who's almost a yearly vezina candidate / winner?

    He never said he is.

    Columbus asked him to provide his trade list.

    NYI make the most sense. Big market team, lots of cap space, need a starting goalie.

    If Bobrovsky is willing to be traded to NYI, and I think he is, I'm 99% sure that is his destination. It makes too much sense.

    True enough. Same with any team I guess. The only reason I can think of is that they feel that they are close to a playoff team. Maybe to avoid competition the same way teams trade for FAs a month or a few weeks, days before July 1st. Maybe it is the re-signing year. I don't know.

    I could see St. Louis possibly being involved. Him and Tarasenko are very close friends.

    While it’s eaay to sell low on draft picks, how tough would it be to see your biological son grow up to provide Vezina calibre goaltending for the Columbus Blue Jackets?

    Blues are not trading their top young prospects for a soon to be if a they can't afford under the cap.
