I don't think I like the idea of Russell with Pietrangelo. I guess that means we're looking at a Cole-Polak pairing as the 3d. Russell is underrated by some folks, and he was a bright spot in the playoffs last year, but if he's with Petro those are going to be some tough minutes and I'm concerned about his size.

And boy do I want to be wrong about Chris Stewart. I respect the fact he's worked so hard this offseason. Just remember, my critique was never that it was effort; it was that his goals came off the rush and while parked on the back post during PPs. Just don't see the him being in better shape leading to the Blues getting lots of 2-on-1s. They score off the cycle grinding defenses down. But maybe he'll earn more PP time where his numbers will go up.
