I'm attracted to reclamation projects because they offer a lot of value. Alex Steen would cost a lot right now if you could get him, he wasn't worth jack **** when the Blues got him.



Alex Steen still had a pedigree that Bozak will never have.


Steen "took off" when he was 25. Bozak is now 26, turning 27 in March. Prior to solidifying his defense in St. Louis, Steen still had 3 top6 calibre seasons. To date, Bozak has 1. And people are still on him about his suspect defense...


Lastly, Stempniak isn't garbage. He had two top6 level seasons under his belt when he was traded...
