All These Guys Do is Golf

from David Pollak of Working the Corners,

Doug Wilson, Ken Holland, Dale Tallon and Doug Armstrong have spent a lot of time in recent years trying to outsmart each other. We’re talking about three NHL general managers — Wilson with the Sharks, Holland with the Red Wings, Tallon with the Blackhawks — and Armstrong, an ex-GM in Dallas who is now part of the Blues’ front office.

No matter. The four of them are heading to Ireland next week, leaving families behind to knock a golf ball around some of that country’s fine courses.

Blues May Be On The Outside Looking In

from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,

Now, could the Blues surprise and defy their cynics? Of course they could. However, when it comes to predictions, it’s all about the likelihood of something happening, not the best-case scenario. And to the majority of us here at THN, the likelihood is the Blues will be on the outside of the playoff picture for the fourth consecutive season.

The truth is, a complete reversal of fortune such as the Philadelphia Flyers enjoyed last season is more an aberration than a reasonable expectation. Once you’ve cleared the decks – the way the Blues did during a bumpy change in ownership that began in 2005 – the subsequent restoration project almost inevitably requires years to complete.

All this is just something to bear in mind when our collective and individual predictions are before your eyes.

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.
