You're a fan and I completely understand having confidence in your team ... for me, I don't see St. Louis repeating. But you're being a fan and there's nothing wrong with that. I'm excited about my teams this season (especially the Rangers because of the offseason moves).

Great signing for St. Louis ... he's depth player but still key. Didn't he almost go to Russia?

Edit: A* depth player

Fairly common move for a Russian guy to use the KHL to try to leverage a better contract but I don't think he was going anywhere. He has a solidified roster spot on a good team.

That’s reasonable. He isn’t as good as Sundqvist quite yet.

Yes, sure, but some players have done that, obviously. Good for the Blues to have him signed.

I expect he'll outperform this deal. He's already a really good fourth line player, and he will probably work his way up to the third line over the course of the deal.
