What are fans saying about the Tarasenko trade

I don’t like this deal for the Blues. Give up a good bit, take on a bad contract, and retain, just for 2 picks and a prospect?

What a deal for the New York Rangers. Wow!!! Love it.

Rangers gave up a depth forward at best, a fourth rounder for a future draft, a prospect not even hitting their top 15 for 2023, and one of their two 1st round picks. For a high-end sniper. Naw, STL was fleeced on this. Mikkola is irrelevant to either side
