The St. Louis Blues attempted a quick bounce back this season to get back in the playoffs, but that ultimately fell through. Now general manager Doug Armstrong is reportedly considering trading Jordan Binnington this offseason.

NHL insider Elliotte Friedman reported on 32 thoughts this morning that the Blues gm is looking to make some major moves in the offseason. He used an analogy to surgery, saying that Armstrong is 'talking about major surgery.' The biggest piece that could be on the way out of the gateway to the west? None other than the goaltender that brought the organization their first ever Stanley Cup.
"I am gonna be really curious what St. Louis does in this offseason. Doug Armstrong has really tried to do some things here... an I'm curious to see what he's going to do behind the bench and I'm curious to see what he's going to do with this team. You can tell he wants to perform some surgery, and not minor surgery... we're talking about some major surgery. He clearly, clearly has the itch to do something here. He's [Binnington] got a no trade clause that goes to a partial no trade... so his full no trade drops. I would be curious about what Armstrong would do here. You're not as good without Binnington but it might be your best chance to get something."

At the same time, rumors about Binnington being on the move this offseason have spread around the league. One team that has been linked to the netminder is the Edmonton Oilers.
The Edmonton Oilers are facing goaltending questions as they approach the playoffs. Jack Campbell has not lived up to expectations, and rumors suggest the Oilers could target Jordan Binnington from the St. Louis Blues.

The Oilers have famously dealt with serious goaltending problems this season, especially with Jack Campbell, who remains in the American Hockey League. At this point, it is not clear whether or not he will ever play in the NHL again.

Will Jack Campbell bounce back?🥣

The veteran netminder has a 2.56 goals-against-average and a .921 save percentage in 30 games at the AHL level this season. Whether or not that will be enough for him to reclaim a job at the NHL level next season remains to be seen.
