Guess Shatty is gone now. No need for him with Chorney's puck moving ability.

Yeah luckily Philadelphia will offer us something good like Meszaros + a 4th, or just offer sheet him to get him off our hands.

Yes, there is a requirement that a certain amount of players have to be property of the NHL affiliate. I think the actual requirement limits the amount of AHL only guys, but it accomplishes the same thing.

Guess when your club doesn't have anything else going on, anything gets a press release.

Because he can play in the AHL and is a call-up option? You need depth sir.

No, I do believe Armstrong is in negotiations with the two, but until he actually gets them signed (along with Stewart and Berglund), he hasn't done anything.

Honestly, that's a ridiculous assertion. No doubt he's working hard to resign them, prepare for the draft, maybe trying to work a trade or two to get us a good draft pick and clear up the problems in net.

I seriously doubt Armstrong has just been twiddling his thumbs expecting the solutions will just fall in his lap. I feel like Blues fans always act like this because he is a patient GM, but in my opinion, Armstrong has never let us down. He has made moves to fix many of the problems that he inherited.

You give me the impression you've never negotiated a contract before (like in personal employment or on behalf of your business). Its a process. There won't be anything said about it publicly until they're nearly done and agreed to the terms. But to say that is "not doing anything" disrespects Armstrong's role (one which he's shown he's very adept at in recent years).

I agree that it's a process, but until the signatures are on the paper nothing has been done in my eyes. That's just how I am, I want to see results. Are negotiations currently ongoing? I don't doubt it at all, but the reality is that our RFA's haven't been signed and July 5 is creeping up on us. Compare it to hockey, if a player dekes by every defender but doesn't manage to score, did he really do anything? No, he didn't register anything on the score sheet which is ultimately what matters. I will reiterate that I have complete faith in Armstrong, but I'm the type of guy that likes to see things set in stone.

Say, by chance, that Shattenkirk doesn't get signed and come July a team offer sheets him at 6.5 mil. We most likely will not match it and despite the compensation of picks, we lose a key cog in our defense making us a worse team for next season. Sure, Armstrong tried to sign him during the negotiation phase, but in the end he didn't. Should we commend Armstrong for negotiating with him? No, because at the end of the day, his attempts to sign Shattenkirk didn't succeed.

Again, people think I'm saying that Armstrong has just been sitting around watching Sportscenter all day, It's pretty clear to me that my definition of "doing something" is different than the rest of you. I prefer to see results, that's just my opinion. I'm not bashing Armstrong, I know he's the type of GM that handles his affairs patiently, but that's not going to change my viewpoint. People give Armstrong the benefit of the doubt due to his history, and I completely understand where you guys are coming from. My brain isn't wired that way. As far as I'm concerned, until Armstrong makes it public that our RFA's have been signed, he hasn't done anything in my eyes. You guys can argue with me all you want, you're not going to change how my brain works.

Been saying that for months, trust me, it makes no difference.

I just wouldn't be surprised if Armstrong has been working on trades during this time. I'll hold my judgement until everything is settled.

Yep, Armstrong is awesome. I have full confidence in him no matter what it is - from great negotiation skills, smart trades, smart free agent signings, good drafting, etc.
