Armstrong Is Putting Faith In The Blues’ Youth
The Blues have a leadership vacuum and need the young players to fill it.

David Backes Pens Farewell Letter To St. Louis
A great mixture of emotions and thankful for an amazing decade of my life! Farewell @StLouisBlues #BleedBlue pic.twitter.com/AyYSSOqj06— David Backes (@dbackes42) July 1, 2016
The former captain has moved on, but it sounds like he'll be one of the many former St. Louis athletes to find his way back. I for one look forward to the day when the team's front office includes Backes and Barret Jackman.

David Backes Hitting Open Market
Looks like David Backes going to market. STL took a run at re-signing him this morning. BOS significant interest in Backes.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) July 1, 2016
This, of course, doesn't mean that he won't be re-signed, but it makes the possibility of the Blues losing their captain even greater.

Get Steve Ott-a here
As the free agency window sets to officially open for business later this morning . . . I remind you that the Blues should not re-sign Steve Ott. There are plenty of reasons why, but I only have a few.

Brian Elliott Requested Trade, Per Doug Armstrong
GM Doug Armstrong discusses the Brian Elliott trade in this exclusive interview. #stlblues #NHLDrafthttps://t.co/JqRWy8995d— St. Louis Blues (@StLouisBlues) June 25, 2016
It appears that Brian Elliott didn't have a desire to be part of a 1A/1B tandem again, which is understandable considering that how he played in the playoffs and down the stretch would've solidified him as a starter on nearly any other team.
Doug Armstrong To Pursue Goalie In Free Agency
Doug Armstrong says he'll be hitting the market for another goalie, most likely through free agency.— Craig Custance (@CraigCustance) June 25, 2016
Apparently Armstrong is not content with Anders Nilsson. The trick is getting someone of Elliott's skill set with a comparable cap hit. Personal opinion: that's going to be difficult to do.
Thank you Brian Elliott for a helluva run
The 31 year old departs in a tough but understandable trade
David Backes should get a chance to retire a Blue
Signing him to an extension of reasonable length this offseason would go a long way toward that end, but considering the shelf life of power forwards, it may end up being the last deal he signs. I've heard of worse ideas.
