Interesting bits about the Blues from Wigge

-- they're very "high" on Devan Dubnyk

-- Alexei Shkotov has turned pro.

-- Pleau has not ruled out making more trades at the draft : "I’ve been taking a lot of phone calls," Pleau said, acknowledging that even though the Blues have at least one pick in nine rounds in the draft except the eighth that getting more picks might become a priority. "We could go up ... and we could go back. We’ll have to wait and see."

-- "pundits" are now saying as many as 6 goalies could go in the first round this year

-- Pleau on the Belle trade: "I think you’re talking about two quality prospects," St. Louis Blues General Manager Larry Pleau said Friday afternoon. "The fact that defense is easily the deepest part of our organization, that we project that Mike Stuart, Trevor Bryne and Aaron MacKenzie, who played at Worcester (American Hockey League) for us last year all should play in the NHL gives us a chance to trade from surplus for need.

Call it a hunch but between this and reading an interview with Jarmo in which he stated "Martin St. Louis reminded us that the size of a player’s heart cannot be overlooked because he wasn’t 6-4, 220 pounds." , I almost expect the Blues to trade down and draft Sindel.

blues are expected to make a few trades over the weekend--rumour is because they did so poorly and got paid so much--the owner had enough of the excuses
