Excuse me as I pretend to hide my complete shock and awe at this announcement. Brace yourselves, everyone.
Incredible, I know. It’s almost like having a 3.54 GAA and a .884 save percentage is a bad thing in today’s NHL, or a 2-6-0 record is probably not helping the Blues’ postseason odds, which no longer exist.
Or having aging players signed to batshit contracts with NTCs prevented the Blues from re-signing a capable backup goaltender who has a decent 12-8-0 record and a much better stats line, or from actually being able to peruse the backup market for something other than a broken sieve that you find at a garage sale.
But whatever. The Blues have gotten at least 5% better in net with the addition of Jordan Binnington, who currently has a 2.34 GAA and a .914 save percentage to go with his 8-4-2 record.
Baby steps, people.
