Radio interview with Doug Armstrong from 101.1 FM here in St. Louis earlier today. Some real interesting stuff in there.

Sounds like the Blues will try to add another defensemen in trade, and barring that will go the FA route. No mention of Carlo, so he is likely gone.

Also mentions up front they are trying to fill the third line center position, but that Steen, Oshie, or Sobotka could all fill that role.

I'm surprised that the deal isn't front loaded. I would have tried to cram as much of the salary into next season as possible before Pietrangelo gets his raise.
