As a Blues fan, hearing analysis of this trade makes me SO happy. Ryan O’Reilly is a beast. But that team that won the cup was a full team with lots of depth. O’Rei is a solid leader, though, and he’s a pretty awesome coach for the younger guys

The Blues Win ... Sabers sucked before trading for RyO they continue to suck after he was moved to St. Louis all while O'Reilly was the one thing missing for the St. Louis Blues ... that being a top line center ... Results were 1st year with St Louis had the Blues win the franchises first Stanley Cup. So the winner is St Louis and O'Reilly I don't care what else happens with the 'loose ends'. You mentioned Bandon Saad and how his trade tree is so complicated because he keeps going back to the Blackhawks and they keep moving him ... Which will happen once more no doubt.

The habs won this trade the moment they got PK out of their room Smashville won when they got rid of him the next year. ( I can't believe that the leafs are going for Subban...fools) Smashville was in contention for the President's trophy the last year with Weber. They barely made the playoffs PK's first year before going on a healthy run ( similar to what the Habs did this year) Also crucial to all this is that Smashville retains the cap hit if Weber retires. Watch weber return in the playoffs if the Habs can make it ( tough test) Giving them all his LTIR to spend.... and then he retires fully after this year. Weber is done after this year regardless I think

Surprised he called what Patrik Berglund did "retiring". He got injured and just flat out refused to return to Buffalo afterwards, so they voided his contract. In fact, he now plays hockey in the SHL, so that's very much not retired.

O'Reilly also the Blues captain at this point. He went from losing his love of hockey in Buffalo to being the leader in the St. Louis locker room. That's a monumental shift.

St Louisan here, so I'm definitely gonna say STL won that deal. And they have Saad now. The loser wasn't Buffalo, it was Patrik Berglund. The trade gave him a damn nervous breakdown. He was love/hated in STL, probably more the latter near the end, but Buffalo killed his spirit. I think it's a bit shady what the Blues did to him, though it sounds like it was more his agent's doing

I’m a Sabres fan and it’s easy to forget on this one, halfway through the season the Blues were dead last and that first round pick was looking like a really good part of the deal … then the Blues brought up this fulla called Binnington. Without that move unrelated to this tree, this trade probably would never look so bad

Unfortunately when you have owners such as the Pegula's who are only focused on driving the franchise into the ground, it doesn't get better. No matter how many first round picks you have. Ie. Injuring Jack Eichel without a care and very openly wanting to forget he even exists. Thus how Buffalo went from 2011 Tom Golisano era 96 points a season to todays 2021 Kim Pegula's era 34 points a season. It's not rocket science. The owners are bad and run the team without a clue, of their own free will and nothing can be done.

Sabres won this trade, no doubt. O'Reilly was great in Buffalo and should have stayed long enough for Eichel to mature and the team to be built around him. Unfortunately, they took the magnificent piece that won it for them and traded him for a bunch of, as you say, magic beans. That doesn't affect who won the first trade; it just means that they blew their winnings after. It's like winning big at the poker table, and then walking over and putting your winnings in a slot machine. Doesn't mean that you didn't win at the poker table; you just did dumb things after that.

The Blues essentially gave up their 3rd line from the previous season to get O'Reilly. As a Blues fan, I was thrilled that Doug Armstrong pulled off this deal. O'Reilly has been everything the Blues could have hoped for both on and off the ice.

The trade broke at about 10:30 PM on June 30. O’Reilly was due to be paid a bonus on July 1. I always found that kinda fishy, especially with how his comments certainly rubbed management and ownership a certain way Tage is a baby giraffe and I’m not sure he ever hits his potential. We only got him because St. Louis didn’t budge on Robert Thomas or Jordan Kyrou. Ryan Johnson is gonna likely be a solid bottom 4 defenseman

When the blues/Sabres trade happened, I went over to their Facebook page to troll and have fun. 1/2 the fans were mad and the other half acted like they won..."look at all we got. RoR is a bad teammate" I explained that Berglund was "meh" at best. Known as the "big Swede", he was a soft player. Sobotka hadn't done much since coming back to the nhl. Thompson hadn't proven anything yet. They argued and argued with me. The smart Sabres fans agreed with me. A few years later I went back to the page and gave some of the fans that argued with me some crap and they agreed and ate crow (which is rare). I then asked them for Eichel. Lol. They responded with "it won't be like the last trade"

@Mr. Pants there's a difference in affording a player and it making sense for the whole team. Yes, tarasenko makes 7.5m but that's only for the next to years and the worst case scenario is they could (not recommending) cut him which means 2/3s of the rest, spread out over double years....so 2.5m over 4 years as a cap hit. Also as stated the health issue with Eichel is big for me. Again, I think he's one hell of a talent. I just don't like those huge contracts

17 дней назад
Mr. Pants
Mr. Pants

@Ka Gg Tarasenko is making 7.5. And if the cap goes up I think the blues can afford a 10mil player if he's can actually be a 1.1 ppg player with 40+ goals and is healthy which obviously there is skepticism if Eichel can be that.
