Want to Sign a Former Blue or Two? How about 20 of them?

Retire2_mediumUsing's list of unrestricted free agents, and not counting players that were a part of the Blues' system last season, with the right contract language, an entire team of active players that were once property of the Blues could be yours for the right price. 

Stanley Cup contenders? Hardly, but it would be a complete enough team to dress four lines of forwards, three defensive pairings, two nearly serviceable goalies, have two spare parts and another goalie in reserve.

Sign them all, and their new team will change their logo to the one that Big Walt is showing off.

Top line - Lee Stempniak (Phoenix)- Doug Weight (New York Islanders)- Bill Guerin (Pittsburgh)

Second Line- Dean McAmmond (New Jersey)- Craig Conroy (Calgary)- Pavol Demitra (Vancouver)

Energy/Checking Line- Yan Stastny (Vancouver)- Jamal Mayers (Calgary)- Ryan Johnson (Vancouver)

Fourth Line- Jeff Hoggan (Phoenix)- Mike Glumac (Montreal)- Glen Metropolit (Montreal)

Spare Forwards- John DiSalvatore (Minnesota)- Jeremy Yablonski (Ottawa)

Defense 1- Jay McKee (Pittsburgh)- Brendan Bell (Columbus)

Defense 2- Mike Van Ryn (Toronto- Injured and will not play in 2010-2011)- Rory Fitzpatrick (Florida)

Defense 3- Andy Wozniewski (Boston)- Shawn Belle (Montreal)

Goaltenders- Manny Legace (Carolina)- Patrick Lalime (Buffalo)- Chris Beckford-Tseu (Florida) 

So who of these players, if any, would you like to see return? And you can forget about Stempniak coming back. The team made "news" by resigning Brad Winchester, what makes you think they'll win a bidding war for a 27 year old player that scored 28 goals last season.
