Bllues have too much cap room to be making offesheets. They will match just about anything.. MacT talked about building relationships with GMs and with the Perron trade he has done just that with STL.. Only way to get AP is by creating a package similar to what we used to pry away Pronger from them.

So he made some mistakes, but when you stop solely focusing on little things that can, and likely will, be work out with experience and maturity, you see a very nice young player.

Nurse skates very well, looks confident, smooth and most of all looks strong. Like bust you in the face, I'm going to make your life hell tonight strong. He looks like the kind of kid, if he brings consistency to his game, that could own faces on a nightly basis and be a difference maker.

Is Darnell Nurse there yet? Hell no, but he's on his way, WAY too earlier to write a kid like him off.
Nurse wasnt the only rookie playing that game.. His skating, hitting, decision making, one on one skill was simply not up to par... No denying that he will be get better as the tourney goes on and as years pass by. No one is writing him off... he just look bad out there last night.
