The St. Louis Blues Need To Be In Win Now Mode

from Ben Frederickson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

Now is no time for mixed messages.

Mike Yeo says it’s all about winning, and it’s impossible to disagree with that, so the embattled Blues coach should make decisions that reflect that thinking, right?

No, this is not about Yeo calling off a practice this week so players could forego ice time for some soccer. That news did not sit well with frustrated fans. So what?

Teams need surprises. A case could be made that this fragile collection of players could use a complete restart. But that’s not happening, so surprising the team with some rest might have been the right play.

The scrutiny instead should be directed toward whom Yeo plays.

It feels strange to write this in November, but Yeo should move forward in a win-now fashion and let the chips fall where they may.
