from Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,
...as Pleau sat at the Blues’ draft table in Los Angeles last week, it hit him like a Bobby Plager hip check. His final day under contract as GM is Wednesday.
“It’s kind of sad, there’s no doubt about it ... because you’ve been there for a long time,” said Pleau, who is the third-longest tenured GM in the NHL. “But we did it for the right things. It’s going to give me a lot more time with (his wife) Wendy. I’ve got no complaints, 13 years here, it was a great run.”
In 1997, Pleau became the 10th GM in Blues history, succeeding Ron Caron. Pleau “is ready to manage in the NHL,” Caron declared at the time.
