"Rumors out of St. Louis and Canada suggest Rangers broadcaster John Davidson will be the next Blues president, now that former Madison Square Garden president Dave Checketts and ex-MSG Network president Mike McCarthy have an agreement to purchase the club. Davidson said last night he has not been contacted and is not pursuing the post."
That rumour has been around ever since Checketts' group was linked to the Blues. Don't really know the history between Checketts and Davidson (other than that Checketts was with the Rangers org in the early 90's) but it is obvious that the two have alot of respect for each other. Therefore, if Davidson was going to make this type of move it would make sense that he would do it with someone he knows like Checketts. Actually believe that St. Louis would be the perfect place for JD. A team with good prospects with more to be added in this years draft. Done smartly (in other words not like Mad Mike did on the Island) that team should be able to build a solid nucleus for years to come.
It seems to me these rumors always startaround the same time every year. Right around April 1st.
HAHA, not sure if you guys all remember the April Fool's trick Sam and JD played on Rangers fans/MSG Network viewers, but about 7 years ago JD had a fake announcement of he becoming the new GM of the Calgary Flames. If I recall, it was effective immediately and he couldn't pass up the opportunity and that the timing was right. It was done really well, I remember being bummed out and totally fell for it, as I'm sure most viewers did as well.
