I agree that the problem for the Blues was that the transition game got bogged down. The defense got rattled, and couldn't control and move the puck up ice fast enough. The split-second slower action makes them susceptible to the buzzing forecheck of the Kings. Basically, we looked like how a lot of teams look against the Blues.

As for Cole vs Redden, I'm glad we have both. Cole has shown some growth, and I still have hopes for him....but its nice that he's going to have to earn his spot in the line-up rather than have it given to him by default. I think Redden has a lot of productive games left in him, but he won't be relied on for night-in, night-out starts. If he can play steady D, it could also take a lot of pressure of Jackman and allow him to sit out instead of playing through some of the injuries he usually plays through.
