The Blues would have qualified for the worst managed team a few years ago. Who can forget their signing of Stevens from the Caps as an RFA followed by the signing of Shanahan from the Devils as an RFA the next year...which resulted in the league awarding the Devils Stevens as compensation. Then there was the negotiations with Mike Keenan that took place while Keenan was coaching the Rangers to the Stanley Cup. Then there was the Gretzky trade...And backing up a few more years, there was the year they did not bother to participate in the NHL draft.

Laurie, Pleau, and Quenneville have stabilized the franchise but when it comes to bad management, the Blues have a past that at least equals that of any team in the post-expansion era.
