NHL Rumors: St. Louis Blues - McDonagh, Husso, the Draft, Perron, Leddy and Bozak
Could the Blues be intrigued in Ryan McDonagh?

Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet: The St. Louis Blues are trying to find a top-four defenseman and they’d be a group to see relating to Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Ryan McDonagh. It may take the Blues a couple of other transfer to get it done, however GM Doug Armstrong most likely has a couple of concepts to make it work.

Do the Blues believe they can have a blue line with both Torey Krug and Scott Perunovich?

Do the Blues believe they can re-sign Ville Husso and have Jordan Binnington?

Do the Blues wish to go up or down in the draft?

Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: The St. Louis Blues presently own the No. 23 choice in the 2022 NHL draft. Could GM Doug Armstrong be intrigued in going up or down?

“If they’re not there (at 23), we’ve studied the groups that have numerous choices in the late 20s and early 30s to possibly return. We’ve gotten in touch with those groups, and now it’s simply a wait-and-see mindset when you begin crossing names off on Thursday night if you make any relocations.

“I haven’t visualized any way that we can move up. And I haven’t been presented with an idea from another team on how they see that we can move up. So I don’t see us making a move higher in the draft. Again, that all changes with one phone call and one idea of someone smarter than me.”

All is peaceful for Blues UFAs

Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: The St. Louis Blues have pending UFAs in David Perron, Ville Husso, Nick Leddy and Tyler Bozak.

GM Doug Armstrong on their UFAs:

“Nothing really to report there and quite honestly not surprising. What happens in my experience is that everyone who has baited their hooks, they’ve all thrown them in the pond now. And everyone’s waiting for a nibble.”
