I don't think we need go and sign anybody. That's not how the team was built. It's time for one of Drewiske, Muzzin, or Bodnarchuk to step in and step up and take that role. As much of a critic as I've been of Muzzin in Manchester. I still think he has the skill set to be in the NHL and be effective. He's just got to be smarter! Sometimes being in the NHL and being around smart players will help you a ton. I could see guys like Mitchell and Scurderi helping Muzzin's game!
I hope you're right.

What Tonellisghost said. Now is the time for Muzzin to step up and show he's a legit NHLer. He may very well surprise the skeptics with how well he does. If he falters, than everyone will realize his limitations and next man up. Patience.
We can hope he pulls a Martinez and shows that his first stint was an audition for his second stint which cemented him in the lineup. I didn't see him at "camp", though, but seems like folks think he's still an adventure out there.

I can see Sutter being a big help for Muzzin's game.

It's what I heard from one of the Kings beat writers. (trying to remember which one now)

If he's in a full practice and traveling with the team on 3 game road trip. It makes sense that he'd likely be playing during the road trip.

The Blues drafted well in Europe because of ONE man: Jarmo Kekalainen.

If that guy drafted you out of Europe, more times than not, you were going to be good. Guy was ****ing great at what he did. We don't have that. Instead we have guys like Futa, who drafts his family friend Tanner Pearson.

Please note: most of you probably won't even realize that that was a joke. I like Futa and Yanetti.

Hopefully we can sweet talk him into giving us a couple names because that guy is usually on the money.

Oh, but there is!!! We've got a ton of prospects and draft picks.

If Dean sees the need, he'll make the right decision and at the right price.

Islanders won't trade Hamonic.

When Dean gets fired, whenever that may be, I want Jarmo as our next GM. I would also have no problem sacking the entire scouting staff tomorrow to bring in Jarmo and whoever he wants. Think is he left the Blues to be a GM in Finland so he'd probably only come back to be a GM.


Anyways...so are people opposed to Ryan O'Byrne out of Colorado? Big, physical and UFA after this year.

Yeah, that'd be nice, we have good scouts, but no variety so we do miss out. We really need to be better in Europe with Finland and Sweden, we are missing out, and lucky for the blues, they have that connection. Dean should make some connections out there so our drafting wouldn't likely contain busts.

That's just silly. Every single team is going to end up with "busts." Drafting isn't a perfect science, and trying to project teenagers is fraught with pitfalls. If you think it's possible to be without busts in drafting, I would love for you to point me in the direction of a team that has a perfect draft history.

Not a team - one man. Jarmo Kekalainen.

Did I read that correctly? How can anyone even ponder the firing of a scouting staff who found many 2nd round+ guys who played a huge part of us winning the cup. Not only directly, but through trades and such.

I hope they stick around as long as possible, DL or no DL. I really don't care where the players are from, whatever they are doing worked.

Lol Im not saying perfect, you should re read what i said, Im saying that drafting more nationally, with the helps of jarmo kekäläinen or someone like him we'd do better, im saying we need to look more into sweden/finland because there are things we aren't picking up.

Please let Mitchell play Thursday. Need him ASAP and then some. Sucks to miss Greener for so long though. Hopefully Drewiske and/or Muzzin can show they can play regular minutes again
