Not an excuse but might explain why he's been struggling this year? Sometimes it's hard to leave personal/family issues off the ice.
I know has made comments about Penner trying to get adjusted to married life as being a contributing factor to his bad numbers.
I would take Penner back but I don't think management sees it that way. I don't think they want anybody who has self-motivation problems like Penner. I even think they might pass on Grigorenko (if he's on the board) for that reason if what they say about him is true.
Guess even the best GM in the league is reactionary
No he's not the best lol
Not going to lie he has made multiple great moves for that club. Then at the same time he has made several crappy ones too.
Made me laugh on deadline day when he said he had several serious offers for James Reimer but he believes he is the real deal so he's not moving him. Come on Burke last year was a flash in a pan on a team who was playing without any expectations and thus the reason he played so well, wake up and move the guy he's useless.
I'd like to see a STL VAN series. That, in my opinion, would be exciting as ****.
Yeah I remember two years ago when Vancouver rolled St. Louis in 4 games and the radio stations in Vancouver were asking callers to call in with their Stanley Cup parade routes. Be some sweet revenge for that franchise to turf a team that many think are a shoe in for the cup this year.
