That's a lot to digest.
1.) Tarasenko--I think I'd rather have immediate help, but all else failing, yeah, I'd take a 2 and 3 (that could convert to a 2).
2.) Dunn--It sure looks like he will be left unprotected in the expansion draft. And if you're Seattle, I think you'd jump at the chance to select him.
3.) Ellis, Walman, Sanford for Tkachuk--Not enough. I would say not nearly enough.
4.) Re-sign Schwartz at $5M, Bozak at $3M--I'd do it. But I don't believe the Blues will. I think they're looking at closer to $4M per on Schwartz and $2M per for Bozak, which explains why it looks like the two will at least test the market.
5.) Hamilton--I'm not sure I want another massive contract on defense. You already have Parayko, Faulk and Krug eating up a combined $18.5M of cap space. Granted, you do need some more offense on defense, especially if Dunn's gone. But I don't think Hamilton is what you'd call a shutdown defensemen either.
