In the first place, no one would consider for even a second that a trade of Langenbrunner for Stamkos could ever take place.

That's it. Not a disparagement or an indictment of Stamkos at all. Take the fanboy glasses off.

At least one person gets it.

Gotta love hfboards. All last season Blues fans heard how the team was nothing but a product of the system. I say I don't want players that won't fit that system, (ya know, the one responsible for winning the Central, placing second in the West, nearly setting a modern era defensive record, and taking us to our first playoff series victory in a decade) and everyone thinks I'm overrating the importance of said system.

Even Ovechkin? At his salary? With his lack of defensive effort? On the Blues? Gotta strongly disagree.
