2015 NHL Free Agency

Beyond Checkerdome #93: Oshie-Goes

The Blues take part in Free Agent Frenzy, and make a big trade. We discuss all of that, and the local media's hot (garbage) take on the Oshie deal.

This is my analysis: nailed it.

Barret Jackman Signs With Nashville Predators

Well, at least it's not Chicago, I suppose. In the division, seeing him five times a year. Two years, $2 million a year (per Sportsnet) before Jax is in the Blues' front office.

Blues Extend Qualifying Offers To Tarasenko, Allen, Bortuzzo, Paajarvi

No word on any terms yet for any of the QOs. I'm sure that Tarasenko's is not inexpensive by any stretch of the imagination. Paajarvi apparently increased his stock price with some solid play in Chicago, but I fear that the window for him with the NHL club is closing.
