Only time will tell what will happen with Steven Stamkos…

St. Louis Blues unlikely to trade David Backes

The Fourth Period: The St. Louis Blues are unlikely to trade David Backes at the NHL Trade Deadline. Kevin Shattenkirk appears to the the Blue most likely to be traded. Blues GM Doug Armstrong told the Post-Dispatch. “The least likely scenario would be to trade Backes because we’re trying to win. A first-round pick does us no good when we’re going to this year’s playoffs. I think we’re going to be a good team and he’s a big part of being a good team. He’s our captain, he’s our leader. We’ve had the most points in the NHL over the last five or six years. I mean, he’s doing something right. If we didn’t want to keep him, we wouldn’t have talked to him in the first place. We’ve got now until March to find out where we’re at.”
