NHL Rumors: Blues Changing Their Mind About Trading Elite Forward?

Recent developments within the St. Louis Blues organization have signaled a significant shift in their stance on trading Pavel Buchnevich.

Initially open to the possibility of trading several players, including the 28-year-old winger, General Manager Doug Armstrong seems to be reevaluating his strategy.

Buchnevich has emerged as a standout performer for the Blues, ranking second in team scoring with an impressive 39 points in 48 games.

This change in approach could be attributed to the limited interest shown in the trade market for the team's players.

With the Blues currently holding a wild-card spot in the competitive Western Conference, Armstrong might be leaning towards retaining Buchnevich and closely monitoring how the remainder of the season unfolds.

Buchnevich has had the best stretch of his career with the Blues, amassing an impressive 73 goals and 182 total points across 182 games played.
