This year the Blues have depth after some of the free agent signings so that should not be a reoccurring problem this season.
Players better than ever?
According to many reports, player like T.J. Oshie, Patrik Berglund, and Jaroslav Halak look better than ever. So lets break down the players who will be key to a successful season.
- Puck control
- special teams
- Face offs (should be fixed with acquisition of Nichols)
Not to beat the topic into the ground, but I just wanted to reiterate the article I wrote last night. The Blues reportedly rejected a $167 million offer by Max Chambers. Some believe its because it wasn't close to the $190 million the team wants and others believe its because Chambers isn't really interested and they question where he will get his money from. I have my opinion, but I'm not going to share it because it doesn't matter, all that we need to know is that it was rejected and the sale is still ongoing
The Blues are 2-0-0 in training camp, and play again tonight as Halak starts in goal. Training camp doesn't mean much but its good to see that if god forbid injuries do occur, we have the players that can step into an NHL role and fill the gaps. Also we should have a decent view by the end of the pre-season games who will be the backup goalie.
