He can score despite the fact he's been brittle. He's excellent on faceoff's. He is on the last year of his deal. He's a perfect one year rental. St. Louis pretty much wants to go with Bergland, Backes and Schwartz down the middle. We have 3, second round picks. I think a 3rd round pick would do it . If that. I do not want Boyle as the third line center. I think they could also trade Bickel for him and get an extra 4th or 5th round pick with McDonald.
I would feel much, much, better if McDonald was on this team as the third line center.
