Bad Reviews Of Perron In St. Louis

from David Staples of The Cult of Hockey,

Three St. Louis sports writers, Dan Greenwald, Bernie Miklasz and Jeff Gordon, have weighed in on David Perron leaving St. Louis for Edmonton, with both Greenwald and Millasz saying Perron was part of a culture of entitlement in the Blues dressing room that needed to change.

Greenwald goes so far as to label the group of St. Louis forwards, including David Backes, T.J. Oshie, Patrick Berglund and Perron, as a group that “has already gotten two coaches fired because of what many have seen as a lack of maturity or lack of responsibility.”

The Coach Killer Club?

A harsh assessment, one that seems a bit off to me, given the success of the St. Louis club in recent years.

One of the local writers mentioned this on HNIC a yr or 2 ago, can’t remember who though. The kids were running the show there and the atmosphere really needed to change for them to be successful. He singled Oshie out more than the other kids. Anyhoo, seems they’re getting a slow start on changing the atmosphere.
Fuch them! That is all

Is he talking about the Cardinals?

Well since that now came out, I wished they’d stay together and continued wrecking that franchise into the ground.  Fuch the B’Lose.

Surely not the great American captain David Backes!  A coach killer? Why I never!
