Manny Legace Waived by St. Louis

From Jeremy Rutherford at the St. Louis Post Dispatch:

The Blues will place goaltender Manny Legace on waivers at 11 a.m. today, the Post-Dispatch has learned.

The team will know this weekend whether Legace has been claimed by another team.

If he is not, Legace will be sent to Peoria. 

“It’s extremely tough,” Legace said this morning. “You play your heart out for a team, and the minute you hit a little bit of a rough patch, they dump on you.

Update 1:20pm ET: From Jeff Gordon at St. Louis Today

Actually, the Blues hockey staff has been patient this season. Legace started the year as the clear No. 1 goaltender and had every chance to keep that job.

With top prospect Ben Bishop needing more time in Peoria, Legace had a chance to extend his stay in a city he clearly loves. But nagging injuries and inconsistency marred his season and hurt the Blues’ competitive chances.
