The season has not gone as planned for the St. Louis Blues, which has the potential for some notable names being on the move before the trade deadline.
Pierre LeBrun had a Tuesday morning radio hit on Vancouver’s TSN 1040.
As part of a longer segment-long conversation on the trade deadline, the Insider made this observation on the Blues:
“I think L.A. and St. Louis are probably the two teams that intrigue me the most,” noted LeBrun. “I think both teams are listening on a lot of guys. I think there’s a lot of disappointment in St. Louis over where the Blues are.
“Doug Armstrong -I had another GM describe Doug Armstrong to me as an alpha today. In other words, he’s not going to sit on his hands and just accept where things are.
“So where that goes, I mean I think it’s still early in the process. Lots of time to play out here between now and the 25th of February.
“But I think the Blues are an absolute wildcard in terms of having a GM who’s unafraid to make change if he’s pissed off. So yeah, that’s a team that is worth monitoring.”
The 17-19-4 Blues occupy last place in the Central Division.
Elliotte Friedman speculated on some Blues’ trade possibilities before the holidays.
