Edmonton Oilers:

- Ivan Barbashev (RFA)

St.Louis Blues

- Matthew Cairns (D)

- 2020 3rd round pick

Edmonton Oilers get their 3rd line forward who is projected to sign from the 1.5-2M per year range.

Ivan Barbashev hasn't worked out for the Blues, so a fresh start would make sense for both.

Barbashev is currently an RFA, and with his right's being gone, the Blues can sign Pat Maroon to a deal.

Cairns is a solid but underwhelming prospect. At the draft, his potential was to be a Parayko type of player but recently began to drop. He was selected 84th overall in 2016.

Do you just make sheet up? Barbashev not working out in st. louis. LOL he is part of one of the best 4th lines in the nhl that was shutting out top lines in the playoffs and his physicality was needed to get through the west. LOL isn't working out. Please show me one article that states this.

You just proved yourself wrong. ''He is part of the best 4th lines in the NHL. ''.
Barbashev is not a fourth line player. For his entire career, he was a scorer first.

When he was just 16 years old, he posted 62 points in 68 QMJHL games. Then surprised everybody that he fell to the 2nd round when he was projected to be a lock in first rounder.

Does that scream ''4th line hitter'' to you?

Ryan Reaves scored 110 goals in pewee AA does that make him an elite scorer at the NHL? QMJHL stats mean just as much handicap in golf when comparing to the nhl for an example Jordan Schalmltz was a top offensive dman in his minor days now he plays a shutdown role in the AHL with top PK time.

Oh my god. That might be the dumbest thing you have ever said VB.

The point is player adapt and Barbeshev adapted to a 4th line checking role.

Vb did you just agree with me. Wow he'll froze over. Lol. Seriously though vb makes a tremendous point. As players move up they tend to break out for points or take on roll playing. As for probing your point are you trying to suggest that he will score a ton moving up 1 line. the sheet you spew is just dumb.

Redwing agrees with vbb’s when he praises a Blues player? Crazy!

Fair trade

Blues will not trade barbashev great bottom 6 center. Can and has swung up to play 2 line and is great PKr. So why on earth do blues downgrade LOL.

10 Aug 2019 20:11:36
Because they get LW/ RW depth with Maroon, as well as a 3rd round pick and a C level prospect.

Is the difference between Maroon and Barbashev a 3rd round pick and a C level prospect?
I think so. Considering you're calling Barbashev a bottom 6 centre.
