I will try to not get too crazy with this post. Basically, I just wanted to tell you all of a wierd trend that I have come into contact with in my travels. I am from St. Peters, MO, currently residing in St. Charles, MO. My wife is from Monett, MO about 45 min outside of Springfield, the long way from Springfield. From time to time we go down there to visit her family. It is a bit uncomfortable for me because we never have a set spot to crash, unlike anywhere I end up here.
However, one great thing about this magical city is that every time I have gone down there in the last 4 years, the Blues have only lost one freaking game. I believe it was against the Lightning. When I am at the psych hospital with the kids, making them watch the game instead of a movie, they seem to get scored on every time I walk in the room. Now when I can't watch the game, because my brothers and sisters in law don't have the cable or internet necessary for me to watc the games, the Blues come out firing and I hear from friends and family through text that the Blues are playing the best games they have seen that year. Although I am always happy that the Blues are winning, I am missing getting to see these games that the Blues are kicking ass. I will try to wrap this up with some final thoughts......
Alex Steen is our most dangerous offensive threat this year.
Jackman is finally at the defenseman maturing age and now is not the time to lose him.
Kariya is expendable, Brewer might be worth a puck bag these days, and the Cromby/Winchester goal scoring frenzy is finally over and we can determine which of them to get rid of-my suggestion is Winchester.
Finally, Bergs, Osh, and Perron are still worth keeping together on a line. Though I would trade Bergs and a pick for something better. Of course, when we trade him he will end up being a three year 50 goal scorer for Detwat or some shit.
It's nice being back in town and watching the Blues, despite playing a lackluster game against the Blue Jackets as soon as I walk in the door. Thank you.
