unless there's a move you absolutely have to make now before someone else swoops in, there's no reason to make trades now. Most teams are settling in on who to protect and who they can lose. Adding/swapping players to the roster can wind up costing you a lot more than the assets required to make the trade. But I wouldn't be surprised if Blake makes more than one move after the expansion draft.
He's not a good defenseman anymore but he's productive offensively especially on the PP, he shoots left and if he doesn't want to the play in the East (blocked a trade to the Boston) maybe Blake can convince him to come back to the Pacific Division.
yeah that's a tough one. he'd bring some offense, but overall his game seems to be toast at this point. He'd likely wind up benched and we'd be dealing with the drama of his ironman streak. But I guess if Blake cant find the guy he's looking for this could maybe buy him another year of trying to find that unicorn we need.
