Brian Sutter was the Blues' head coach and he wanted/needed a d-man. He liked the Flyers' Murray Baron who was one of four players in the Brind'Amour trade to Philly. Of course, he also got his brother Ron in the trade. Ron Sutter, the Flyers' captain at the time, held out for a day in training camp to voice his displeasure with Russ Farwell and contract negotiations.
When he came back to camp, Farwell traded him and Baron for Brind'Amour and Dan Quinn
at least that was one trade Farwell got right.
