St. Louis Blues: It's a credit to Barret Jackman's performance this past season that he won the Calder Trophy as rookie of the year considering he had just 19 points and was a stay-at-home defenseman for the Blues. Washington Capitals: You'd think trying to trade a 31-year-old, five-time scoring champion would be easier.
