Plus, wasn't there a lot of talk about the Blues' being at their maximum number of contracts? They just signed Armstrong. Are they actually at the max, or are we going to have to see movement/buyouts before the season begins?
I thought they were at 45 before this last flurry of signings. So, Bayda, and Armstrong make it 47. I assume Dahm's AHL-ECHL contract won't count towards the 50 limit. Sydor would make 48. Are there any more recent signings with an NHL component? If Bell's signing was after they reached 45, then The Blues will be at 49 IF they sign Sydor. I think they are near the limit (or, possibly right on 50), but I doubt that they are actually OVER 50.
