    Dunn looks to be the odd man out with the Krug signing and with other prospects in the system.

    There was a lot of talk about Dunn on this board leading up the the draft that ended up not materializing in a trade.

    Now that the draft has come and gone and the squeeze that is occurring league-wide from COVID, what does the trade market look like?

    I don't see a pressing need to trade him, he'll get a meager raise at best.

    Would've happily done VAN/AZ 1st for Bozak + Dunn + 3rd, but the time for that has passed...

    Our 1st next year should be off the table. How about NYI 2021 2nd + AZ 2021 3rd?

    I've liked him for awhile now. He reminds me of TJ Brodie. Can he play RD?

    A similar age and impact forward. Young guy who can score goals, is also cost-controlled, and has room to grow.

    On the Blues forum there is a discussion about adding Dunn in a possible trade for DeBrusk, so something like that.

    ...or picks/prospects.

    Someone compared him to Brodie ? I thought he plays a heavier game and is more defense orientated?
    I cannot see the Blues moving him unless they cannot move Bozak / Steen .

    Nah he’s an offensive d-man. Not very good defensively.

    it’s not necessarily that we’re worried about the cost. It’s that there isn’t room for him. With the signing of Krug, he’s basically a better version of Dunn. And him, Parayko, Faulk and Scandella make up our top 4. Niko Mikkola should be on the team as well, and Gunnarsson and Bortuzzo are cheap vets while we let Scott Perunovich marinate in the AHL. Once Perunovich becomes NHL ready, that’s another small, offensive d-man similar to Krug. So having all three of them in the lineup would hurt us defensively. Thus it makes sense to move Dunn for a forward that can score and help ease the loss of Tarasenko.

    With the threat of an Offer Sheet, could St Louis really demand anything more than a 2nd?

    Brodie is a pretty good defender actually. He doesn't play any sort of heavy game though. Dunn skates like Brodie. Not quite as good defensively, but he might get there.

    Jack Roslovic / Vince Dunn as a base?

    Oops...Thought he was a RHD

    Dunn could be a fit in L.A.

    Offer sheets are fun to consider in theory, but almost never happen. I don't think the blues are all that concerned about it

    Dunn for Tage Thompson?

    Buffalo needs LHD, Cozens is probably starting the season on RW and Olofsson will have to flip wings with Hall signing. He's cost controlled and familiar with the Blues Org

    With Tarasenko and Steen going on LTIR the Blues have more than enough capspace to match. Not saying I'd be happy if we have to do that, but we can.

    Wish our GM had got him included in the Allen deal. We need to shed some salary but if we can I’d do our 2 x 2021 2nds plus Kulak (if you want a replacement LHD, signed 2 more years at $1.8/per, if not take him out but he doesn’t look out of place playing with Petry who’s similar to Faulk).

    Dunn could be available because we have a surplus of left handed D. It doesnt make sense to deal him for another LHD. I don't mind a deal around the two 2021 2nd's, but I'd rather add another pick or prospect instead of Kulak.

    Dunn for Weegar seems like a fair trade.

    He might be cost controlled, but he's nowhere near the quality of player. Thompson would be a throw-in for Dunn, not a base (and a throw-in they don't really need).
