If Tarasenko leaves to an excellent start, why would the Blues even wish to move him? Now, the legitimate trade deals might begin to come if he’s producing and they’d need to look it.
From understanding, Tarasenko would still like a trade. Rutherford likewise believes he’ll stay with the Blues all season long.
Think eventually this season the Blues will want to generate some goalie depth. Hard to see both goalies, Jordan Binnington and Ville Husso staying healthy all season or not mistaking a bit. Internal goaltenders are Joel Hofer and Charlie Lindgren.
