Oshie Will Pay For His Mistake

from Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

T.J. Oshie is supposed to be one of the cornerstone players of the New Blues, one of the up-and-coming teams in the National Hockey League.

Of course, Erik Johnson was supposed to be THE cornerstone of this team – and currently he labors for the Colorado Avalanche.

Oshie should reflect upon this while accepting his punishment for missing Monday’s practice for no good reason. Blues general manager Doug Armstrong is driving this franchise forward and he clearly lacks patience with stragglers.

As the Blues close out this season, everybody is under the microscope. GMs and coaches learn the most about players when times are difficult.
