As a Blues fan this news does not bother me in the least. Any team in the NHL that wants to pay Demitra 6 million a year to disappear when the going gets a bit rough can go right ahead. Please, take him. What's the point of a top 6 player that disappears in the playoffs. At least Tkachuk is out there banging bodies, working hard in the corners and in front of the net, even if the stats in the playoffs haven't reflected it. Demitra simply vanishes, plays a perimeter game and refuses to pay the price to win in the NHL playoffs, based on having watched him for the last 6 years or whatever it's been.
Pleau can spend the money more wisely elsewhere. Personally, I hope Demitra ends up in Toronto. I hate Toronto. It'd be a perfect match.
