John Davidson Wants To Stay In St. Louis, But Will He?

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

For years, Blues President John Davidson told fans to “Come grow with us.” Now, with new ownership in place, the question going around the organization is whether Davidson will continue to grow with the Blues.

Tom Stillman, whose group took control of the club May 10, is the middle of determining the structure of the Blues’ front office, and despite the fact that Davidson just finished the first year of a four-year contract, there are no assurances he will remain with the team.

In fact, Davidson has a “window” in his deal, which triggered when the ownership change took place and opened for an unspecified limited time, allowing him to seek employment outside of the organization.

Davidson stressed that his preference is to stay put — “We thoroughly enjoy St. Louis; it’s been great to us,” he said — but with the uncertainty of Stillman’s plans and the window closing at a time that Davidson chose not to disclose, he may soon be checking his options.

I certainly wouldn’t complain if he left to return to the No. 1 analyst spot on TV, but with the results in St. Louis, I’m doubting that happens.

I’m sorry, but what did I miss? The Blues have an overachieving season under a long-since-proven top tier coach, and suddenly Davidson deserve a bunch of credit? Let’s not forget that he has been in his position since the offseason leading into 2006-2007. They made the playoffs twice and until Hitchcock got them playing a proven system that put points up in the standings, they couldn’t get fans in the seats. Doesn’t exactly sound like a top-notch team president, does it?

Whatever it takes to keep that clown from returning back behind a mic on TV.
