A problem the Blues have is that they are on the small side on the Blue line. LA pounded on our defense when they swept us. If the Blues sign a top four LD Cole gives the team very good depth as the 7th defenseman and as we know depth is very important in a long season. He played well last year when he had the opportunity. Cole has a positive upside and I just don't see the Blues dealing him. Fairchild was a very pleasant surprise but he is also on the small side which works against him. We've seen top FAs get outrageously long contracts for big bucks, then again we've seen a Hossa take less wanting to win a cup. This is Suter's chance to cash in big. I wonder if he has any connections to any of the current Blues players or staff that would help. We'll know soon enough.
