Time for a popularity contest. I mean, the Blues have played four games and not since Saturday. There's not a ton to talk about. So let's stir the pot and see if we can get some debate going on.
We already have our decision that we're going to write about tomorrow, but today it's for the masses to decide the best player in St. Louis (in the NHL).
At this point right now with the St. Louis Blues, who is the best player on the team? That means right now, not at the end of the year or in five years or what some may think a player's career ceiling might be. Let's narrow it down.
At forward, the nominees are: David Backes, Paul Kariya, David Perron, Patrik Berglund, Andy McDonald, T.J. Oshie, Keith Tkachuk and Brad Boyes.
On defense...well that's kind of work in progress. If you like Erik Johnson or Carlo Colaiacovo then "OTHER" is the vote for you.
And then there's the bald, bearded-one, Chris Mason.
When you vote, leave a sentence in the comments. Take a stand, tell us who you think is the best player on the Blues.
