Yeah I've loved Barkov's game. I've been considering getting a Barkov jersey.

I think Hall belongs in talks with JT and Stamkos.

Is Stastny really any better than Berglund?

I do. People overrate Berglund's all-round game around here. Berglund's line was easily the worst in the playoffs last season.

Stastny is a plus defensive player too due to his ability to read the play and stick, kind of like someone like Schwartz.

A lot of people seem to underrate that aspect of his game since he isn't physical.

6'4 220 lb 2 way centers don't grow on trees. I always thought Stastny was overrated and Berglund was underrated. I would give the edge to Stastny though, because of his playmaking ability, which is something this team has lacked for years.

Berglund's 2-way has been way overrated by Blues fans.

Yeah Berglund and underrated do not belong in the same sentence. The dude was hyped up for a long time and now we know what he is...Decent 2nd-3rd line center, really nothing that special.

He was the Blues best player in the playoffs 2 yrs ago. Wish we would see that Berglund all the time.

If not, do so.

Hertl is a treat to watch and San Jose has such a crazy good powerplay setup.

I wish we could have drafter Hertl, but at least I have him in my keeper.

That was awesome. Almost as good as giving him the business.

Eh. I think most Blues fans watch a game and say Berglund sucked when he made more good backchecks or crucial moment faceoff wins than other guys on the team, but then overrate Oshie and Sobotka's defensive games. After Steen and Backes, I don't think any forward on the Blues is clearly better defensively than Berglund is. In any given aspect or on any given night, it changes, obviously, but he's right up there for the most part. Berglund's respect or lack of respect from Blues fans revolves almost entirely around scoring and hitting, while his defensive game is nearly ignored.

If you haven't seen the end of the Jets-Ducks game you need to check it out. Bogosian with an absolutely brutal turnover. I honestly feel bad for the guy. Such a terrible way to lose a hockey game. Still somewhat humorous, though. SportCenter Not Top 10 nominee.

He continues to have very positive moments only to be brought down by his struggles.

It's kind of funny to watch all the Giroux threads popping up on the trade forum. Seems like justice for all the times Philly fans brought up why we had to trade Pietrangelo to them.

Random: Can anyone justify why a powerplay is negated on a delayed penalty? It seems like such a good way of creating a new, exciting element to the game, and, it would increase scoring ever so slightly (as well as have the ability to turn games around immediately).
