Family Rivalries



I have a brother in law that is saying that the Blues are mostly expendable with the exception of Perron or Oshie, Backes, and Johnson.  He believes that Coli is our second best d-man, but Johnson is at best a Second line dman.  Brewer, he believes, is the next best man to Coli, but is ahead of Coli defensively.  He goes to lots of games and says that Jackman is useless and makes the worst passes on the team.  He believes that Bergs is expendable (I agree for Staal, Kovalchuk, or Nash) but otherwise no.  He thinks Pietr is a bust and we should trade him now.  He still thinks that Perron or Oshie have to go to make the team better.  He thinks that Tkachuk and Jackman are not leaders and have never been.  Kariya is useless and has been since ever.  Now my brother in law has been on a roller hockey team throughout his life, (lol I have been for the most part) and knows hockey better than any fan that has to watch the games at home instead of in the lower bowl.  I know he is a fan, but also full of himself beyond anything.  I want to know what the educated hockey fans of gametime think of this.  I have to continue my tirade in that he believes that Boyes is a lucky 40 goal scorer and we have no potential 30 goal scorers on the team.  We did agree that Kovalchuk would be an amazing addition, but we disagreed on who would be expendable.  He seems to think that the Blues should be good now and get rid of the young forwards and older defensemen.  Except he thinks that Brewer is right where he should be developmental wise.  So please let me hear your thoughts.  I am really needing to hear some educated thoughts about this issue.
