Blues in 1983??

Hi Blues Fans

Can any of you tell me why the Blues never showed up to the 1983 draft, thus forfeiting all of their picks?

Thanks

Because of the uncertainty surrounding the team at the time... the team almost moved and it also almost folded.

They were almost moved to Saskatoon Saskatchewan. My stomach gets sick just thinking that we almost lost our team.
