I’m not going to complain much about this one – twelfth overall in the league’s not a bad spot to see St. Louis sitting, and they actually didn’t do a boneheaded analysis this time. The only doofy comment they made was this about Paul Kariya:
The Blues summer ended on a bit of a sour note when Paul Kariya announced that he would not be playing this season as he continues to deal with post-concussion syndrome. If this is in fact the end of the road for Kariya it is an unfortunate way to end such an illustrious career.
The praise for GM Doug Armstrong and the Blues’ off-season moves seems a bit fluffed up with hyperbole, but when you see what the team did in the off-season written out in a paragraph, it doesn’t look half bad.
