i'm thinking the blues have given up.. or else they would already have someone other than Osgood in nets.
The problem pleau is facing now is the same one he has faced for several years. Sure he would like to have a marquee goaile but those are very hard to come by. He tried very hard to get Hasek and from what I hear had a legit offer on the table, Hasek Chose Detroit.
He went hard after Sean Burke last year the problem is that Barnett wanted Jackman plus a few no 1 picks. That wasnt a trade proposal that was an attempted ****. He got Osgood who played OK last year and the first 30 games of this year he looked like a Vesina candidate.
The other big Problem in this deal is that the Blues thought they had their guy in Brent Johnson who played very well for a while and then Inexplicably turned into Hardy Astrom with a ****ty attidude on top of it.
The blues are going to have to hope they can just get by in nets until they are able to draft and develop an elite one because they are to hard to aquire in most cases.
