Price is definetely not bad compared to what other fourth-liners (Gordon, Nystrom, Hendricks) have got today but is Lapierre really what Blues need?
Defensive center that hits, A LOT? He's willing to fight now, but will lose a fair share of them. Great signing for you guys. If STL is looking for skill instead of grit, Lappy isn't what you guys need. Perfect for the STL system, as long as he doesn't dive.
I like it actually. We've lacked that agitator in recent years and he has a ton of recent playoff experience. Good size and can skate. One of those despise him unless he's on your team type of guys. Good 4th line C.
