No protection for Tarastinko!!
Unfortunately I think they will be eating a large portion of that salary to move him. Kraken really seemed focused on young potential talent vs expensive injury risk (Price & Tank). Smart move by them, hopefully Armstrong can work some magic when the trades open up this afternoon!Kraken passed on him too. Would have rather kept Dunn but I don't blame them a bit.
He probably has a say in where he gets traded to. It may have been on the table and he refused to go to the team that wanted him. The Blues are gonna get stuck with part of his salary. Just get rid of him already. He’s not going to help the team in any way this year.Guess I’m not sure why the hell they didn’t trade Tarasenko for a cheese sammich prior to the expansion draft. Supposedly they had 4 teams willing to take the entire contract on.
