I agree that he is one of the more dynamic players on our team and I'm sure management would like him back, but this Blues team that just finished 2nd in the West with McDonald only playing 25 games is not exactly desperate. Let's remember that and not act like the rest of our team is complete crap.
No one is saying that. But you have to be cognizant of the fact that Elliott and Halak probably had career years last season, and the defense(mostly Pietrangelo) was healthy the entire season as well. So yes, McDonald's absence wasn't felt as badly. To expect our goalie tandem to duplicate what they did last year would be wishful thinking, hence why it's very probable that the Blues would very much want to re-sign the team's most prolific scorer(at this point at least).
