NOT MUCH ON THE PROSPECT PLATE THIS WEEKEND:
The draft is done, and the Blues seem to have stopped having the annual Prospect Development Camps in the summer, so there will be very little to talk about where prospects are concerned until we get closer to Traverse City in late August.
Taking a cue from the Blues' section at the "Hockey's Future" website, I'm going to spend the next few weeks polling the "Game Time" family about the Blues' prospect pool. Assuming that the Top Three prospects are:
1. Vladimir Tarasenko.
2. Jaden Schwartz.
3. Ty Rattie.
...who do you all think should be the next player on the list? Make your voice heard in the poll below, and in the polls that will follow over the next few weeks.
Speaking of T-90, his "official" signing should be announced today, which is a very good thing for the organ-I-zation moving forward.
Also, Free Agent signing begins today. I don't think any of us expect the Blues to make a huge splash in the market, but we can probably all agree that there will be some kind of movement coming from 14th and Clark today, or in the next few days.
Discuss Tarasenko and any free agent signings in the Comments section, bitte... and don't forget to chime in on the Prospect Poll, too.
