Since moving to New Mexico, I only make it to a couple Blues games a year. Multiple times, Cam has noticed my son and gotten a puck to him during warm-ups.

He may not contribute much more than energy and get the crowd into it, but his teammates seem to appreciate him, and I am grateful for his sensitivity towards the young fans. I've seen him do that type of thing numerous times.

Cam is a good dude - met him and Clemmer in Albany when they were with the 'Rats. I didn't anticipate NJ making a splash on the market, obviously their main objective is Parise.

You guys would play him 5-7 minutes per game? Jeez...I was pained when he was on the ice for 2-3 minutes a game in STL. Janssen is perhaps the least talented member of the NHLPA, and I suspect he'll be seeing the wrong-side (from his perspective) of the 2-way deal more often than not.

No doubt the guy is a great guy off the ice...but players like him are being phased out of the NHL. You've got to be able to offer something more than just energy...and Janssen doesn't. He could take his shift without a stick and nobody would know the difference.

can't say I disagree with anything you said, especially since in NY our guy has a hard on for every meat ball in the league that hits the market.....the goon role is completely outdated and over celebrated

lol that made me laugh.

But in all seriousness, good for him, he is a great guy off the ice and Im glad he found a job although I was kinda hoping he would stick around STL with a PR job or something of the sort.

So King gets traded, and the Blues let Janssen walk.

Is this good news for Ryan Reaves, or are the Blues not going to carry an enforcer this year?

No, Reaves likely will not play many NHL games this year.

The Blues apparently don't think they need an enforcer. This is obvious when someone head hunts Perron and only Pietro does anything.

Expect guys like Pietro to fight more now. Dumb.

Thanks is a pretty darn good summary of Cam Janssen, NHL player.

Cam Janssen went to the Rocky Balboa school of fighting. Let the opponent tire themselves out by punching you in the head, then take your turn at the head punching.
