Offseason Free Agency

To predict the Blues' future next year, one need look no further than the latest news straight from the horses mouth, so to speak.

So, Jd says we aren't going after anybody who will cost us big money.  This raises a few questions.

Does this mean we will go after 2-4 average players to add to our average team to make the team as a whole better?

If the Blues do go after a few good players, will they be wasted roster spots like Kariya and Tkachuk?

Does this lend credence to the skeptics saying the Blues management is just trying to make money and are more worried about creating the image of a good team rather than actually building a good team?

Does this mean we will actually get to see our young kids in the minors on the NHL roster (i.e. Petro, Eller, Junland)?

Does this mean we will endure yet another average to below average season, grasping at hopes of a 7th or 8th place finish just to be eliminated in the first round after, hopefully, more than 4 games?

Wouldn't it be nice if the team had a 10% increase in points to justify the 10% increase in ticket prices?

Does management realize that they can raise ticket prices all they want, but if the fans don't show up, they still won't have the money to pay for players like Johnson, Perron, Steen and Mason?

 

I suppose we won't know until next year, and the early signs may not be encouraging.  

All we can do is keep the hope.
