The Blues haven't broken the bank, gone all Daniel Snyder and everything. But new owner Dave Checketts has put some checks back in the CheckettsDome, so to speak. New president John Davidson didn't go pre-fab; he purchased concrete and laid footing. He collected respected pieces such as Bill Guerin, Martin Rucinsky, Radek Dvorak, Dan Hinote, Jay McKee and Manny Legace. This is still a no-frills, Blues-collar team. But it is one with substantially more street credit. In places where it was uncertain and untested, it is professional and recognizable. In places it was painfully thin, it is now creditable and deep. The Blues don't look like a Stanley Cup contender, but they look like a playoff-caliber club and Davidson and general manager Larry Pleau engineered the makeover without raiding the pantry.more
