now we can all stop the speculation and talk blues defence with johnson being on it. We can now start arguing who's going to go.

But what is better for his devolpement? I am not so sure staying in college another year would be the best idea.

Excellent. Watching him in the World Juniors last year convinced me he's the real deal. McKee and Erik Johnson together will be great.

You buggars! Could've used him for 1 more year at the "U"! I wish EJ would talk Oshie into reconsidering....good luck to EJ and thanks for your season at Minnesota. Blues fans, you're gonna love the blast from the point.

Per a press release from the offices of 14th & Brett Hull Way, the St. Louis Blues will be holding a press conference at 1:00 p.m.

No word yet which stations will be carrying it, but I assume KMOX will air it.

I think the best part of this is not so much that the era of EJ will begin, but the impact this will have on our ability to convince both FAs and our Euros that it is okay to sign with the Blues...

For 'taking' EJ after only 1 NCAA season, Blues management must agree not to touch Barriball until he graduates.

Can't say that 100% right now. He went straight from HS to the NCAAs, so he is young, but he certainly had a great rookie year. One of the most consistent Gophers from the start of the season to the end, logged a lot of PP time as a freshman, and was on a line with Wheeler and Stoa. He's not afraid to go in the corners or in front of the net either. Obviously the biggest question with him is size, but who knows in the new NHL.

Great news, but we all have to remeber that he is going to have to mature much like Pronger did and not expect too much too quick.
