Bye bye SanfordÂ

By Brad Lee

How will history remember the Curtis Sanford era? And a Goalie Named Tsue, we hardly knew you.

The Blues on Monday decided goalie Jason Bacashihua will be the backup come training camp and Chris Beckford-Tseu needed playing time in a different organization. Neither was tendered a contract. Injuries were ultimately the undoing of Sanford as the crystaline-like goaltender could simply not stay healthy at a time when the Blues were looking for a rock-solid netminder to take charge. When not on the injured list, Sanford showed promise, even rejecting a guaranteed contract last year and gambling that he could push Legace for the starting job. Hard to do that in street clothes and limping.
