Be that as it may, what exactly does he offer to this team long term? Junland is perfectly capable and should be getting the necessary NHL experience.

I still contend that he will be trade bait. If the Blues can't get him on their roster, there is a a big chance he is going to head back overseas at the end of the season. JD had mentioned early last season that Junlund turned down bigger money overseas to try and crack the NHL. He was going to give it one more year. Apparently, Junlund extended his own patience for another season. Unless the injury bug hits hard, Junlund just won't get an extend look this season. There is just too many "NHL-ers" currently fighting for spots, and another guy with almost no NHL experience can't crack right now.
So with this all in mind, I wouldn't be surprised to see the Blues deal him if they cannot make room for him. The guy is a ticking going AWOL/lost prospect bomb and the Blues know it.
