When do you start to worry?



I was wondering, when do a team like the Blues start to worry about their future?  We are no longer a team that can really afford to be losing like this.  There is no real possibility to be looking towards the future because we need to be doing better now.  We can't be a losing team and trade players at the deadline for draft picks anymore because our system is so stacked as it is, unless there happens to be a really good number one pick available.  I know people will say that there is always a need for future prospects, but do we lean in that direction at the expense of experience?  Do we look at veterans as exchangable?  Do we trade away prospects to get more mid-level talent like the mid-level talent we already have?  Do we make a blockbuster trade for a name that was good in 1995 like we always have?  Or do we make a move for someone like Kovalchuk that is young enough to be good for the next ten years and give up some of the youngsters that have this potential we keep talking about.  Of course, I would like to keep Bergs, Oshie, Perron, Eller, Palushaj, Cole, and Sonne.  But none of them seem to be potential 50 goal scorers.  I take that back, I would settle for a proven 40 goal scorer.  Boyes should be that guy and I will keep the faith in him, but damn find the back of the net.  Personally I think the Blues should make a move for Rick Nash, who I think would fit well into the Blues system and give us a multiyear proven finisher.  This is my first post on this website and I don't think it is my best first impression, but I got some things out I have been pondering.  Looking forward to some comments.  Let's Go Blues!
