Great, great players are HUGE difference makers. It's true in all sports. He's just been average to above average this year, with a lot of mistakes that have directly caused the Blues to lose games.
Oh I totally agree. There are very few players I would trade last year's Pietrangelo for. I have faith he will get back there but like you said until he does, it really doesn't matter what else we do with the roster.
