I have done so well avoiding the barley beverages and still managing to watch every game possible. The Blues have done something I don't think they would ever do. Kariya is playing for a contract... cough cough, have I seen this before? Mason needs to go somewhere else because he is the shit and needs to pull a Hully to do it. Steen got paid. Perron needs to give a shit to get paid....I'm waiting for more than three highlight goals a year for that. Holy shit I did not realize Johnson or Junland got paid what they do. I have three cousins betting me Johnson leaves us for more money.
In my estimation, Steen gets paid, Perron gets pissed off at what we offer him. We miss out on Halak and Niemi because the Beard tells us he is good for another 8 years. Coli gets 60 points as the replacement to Quincey in Colorado and we focus more on him than forgetting to make an offer to Anderson. We re-sign 12 4th liners to compete for a spot on the next four seasons worth of teams. Eller, Cole, Pietr, and Sonne end up in the minors for another three years to develop. Junland is traded for Brewer's all star year jock strap.
I just wanted to point out a worst case senario before I got down to business. Steen needs to get paid. Perron is thinking he is worth more than he is because he knows how to make Luongo shit himself. Johnson is a legitimate threat from the Blues blueline (ask Kaberle what that is worth). Let us pay them and ensure the future. We have too many fourth liners and someone needs to be cut. Ok we like Weaver, so what do we do with Strachan? I can deal with the Brew for another year if he plays like he has this year, just give us back 12 million bucks. I still like Jackman, fuck off.
Blues have everything but a first line. Get me one of those and we are fine. If you can't, I will settle for another year of disappointment until we can get one. Our 2nd, 3rd, and lordy 4th lines are solid for 10 years. Get the first line and an elite goalie. Noting there are not many goalies available that are proven, but seriously, San Jose has developed like 4 good to great goalies. I think we can manage to get one from some other team that doesn't know what they have. Kipper or Nabby? I'd still take Kipper, and I'd bet SJ would too.
This is one of the very last drunken exploits, but it had to be done at this point in the Blues season. I want us to win, always have, will be a fan when we don't. But seriously, show me that we have a chance.... I mean fuck, look at Pheonix and Colorado. We aren't fuck me the Hawks, but we can definately beat Nashville, Colo, Phoenix, and most teams at the bottom to get a spot, and we can dominate the good teams. If we didn't lose so much to the shitty teams we might be pulling a LA type season.
Frustrations vented from a 26 year old Blues fan that got lost at his first Blues game after walking away from his dad at the vender because he talks too much and found his way back to his seat in the nose bleeds at the Arena after the place was shut down to find me. I just wanted to see the damn game. Let's Go Blues!
