I've been quietly rooting for the Blues since JD's been there. I always pick a team in the west to root for in the PO's, hope it'll be them this season. I also like the Ducks team, tough, hard nose hockey.
I follow the Blues closely because of JD.He has made some excellent deals along with the help of Larry Pleau.The Brad Boyes heist from Boston.The Steve Wagner college FA signing.Where did he come from?The Hannu Toivonen deal with Boston(again).Some of his FA signings haven't worked out-Martin Rucinsky,Doug Weight and Jay McKee-but that's the FA games goes sometimes.Manny Legace was a good FA signings.Andy Murray scratching Erik Johnson.They had all of those picks in 2007.David Perron,Lars Eller and Ian Cole.Perron is contributing this season.They have a good defense.You can't root against John.
Good for JD, hes got a good squad and his players are coming through for him.
Whats great for that team, is not only are they playing well but they have developed a good group of scouts and have a very very good prospect pool right now. And i think they have a few extra picks the next few drafts to boot.
They are in a good spot, happy to see JD doing well -
