Blues Building From Within

from Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

The Red Wings added explosive scorer Maria Hossa via free agency. The Blackhawks added offensive defenseman Brian Campbell and goaltender Cristobal Huet.

The Blues have countered by signing two depth players—defenseman Mike Weaver and forward Matt Foy, Ho and Hum—as free agents….

Instead of adding a lot more this summer, the Blues are planning to get a lot more from what they already have. Everybody has to do a much better job.

Watching the players and coaches respond to this challenge this fall will be fascinating.

Blues Watching Their Dollars

from Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

The Blues have been especially careful, adding depth defenseman Mike Weaver to offset the loss of Matt Walker. The team also extended an offer sheet to Canucks restricted free agent Steve Bernier, a pointed payback for Vancouver’s bid on David Backes.

But there are always several GMs out to make a splash. Some are new to their job. Others are fighting to keep their gigs.

Some represent new owners seeking to start their run with some style. And there are always a few big-market GMs with money to burn.

Blues Will Spend Wisely

from Jeremy Rutherford of the St. :Louis Post-Dispatch,

The Blues plan to be fiscally responsible again this year. They signed free agent Paul Kariya to a three-year, $18 million contract last season but don’t plan to be as busy on July 1. The club is sticking with its plan of building from within.

“I think we’re going to be pretty quiet ... but you never know,” Checketts said. “What I don’t want to do is prevent somebody from getting some (ice) time out there that is going to grow and really develop into a player.”

The Blues had a payroll of $45 million last season with a $50.3 million cap, and they have committed about $48 million toward next season.
