St Louis Blues Shopping Two Forwards for Trade

The St Louis Blues are an interesting team to watch this week as we approach the April 12th trade deadline. The team sits five points out of a playoff spot and are trying to find ways to upgrade their offense. They also happen to be listening to trade offers on forwards Tyler Bozak and Mike Hoffman, this according to Pierre LeBrun of TSN.

Both players are pending free-agents who would be great additions for contending teams. Bozak could easily slide into a team's third-line center role and help kill penalties, meanwhile Hoffman is a sniper who can provide some secondary scoring from the wing and help out on the power-play. 

The 29-year-old Hoffman is on the books for $4 million this season, and has recorded 21 points in 36 games. Meanwhile the 35-year-old Bozak has struggled this season and has only managed to chip in with four points in 14 games.

The Edmonton Oilers are a team to watch for both of these players as they would certainly have a level of interest dependent on how much salary the Blues retain. Other teams to watch include the New York Islanders, Boston Bruins and Colorado Avalanche.
