What in the world are you talking about? The Blues have the second lowest payroll in the whole league. Granted, they have to sign a couple key players, but they will be able to fit it in the budget.
Going into 2013/2014 right now, the Bruins have roughly 6.5 million to work with and the Blues have 24 million to work with. Bergeron's contract is up after next season. Horton, Jagr, Ference are all FA's this summer. Rask is due for a big contract coming up as well.
The Blues have Petro, Shattenkirk, Stewart, Berglund who are key players that are FAs this summer. Steen is up after next season but probably will just command $3M or around that number.
