I just read in the swedish newspaper Aftonbladet that the Blues had interviewed swedish prospect Carl Klingberg in a somewhat unusual way.

The Blues called him to their hotelroom and asked him to take off his clothes (except the underwear) and stand in front of them. Then they asked him to do 3 high jumpes infront of their table, a table which 10 of the Blues scouting staff sat behind.

I don`t think they wanted to check my physical status, it was more of a mental test, to see how I would react, Klingberg said.

In the same article they say that St. Louis is famous for doing stuff like this, and they put Patrik Berglund through the same routine before picking him in the first round of 2006.

Klingberg is a big forward from Frolundas juniorteam, (the same team as Lars Eller) and he is supposed to be picked somewhere between #20 and #40...

Not from Pleau. Said he [Andy] heard it from an agent who supposedly heard it from another GM who supposedly talked to Pleau

The Blues checked into the Heatley situation, but sources have told me that's TOO expensive. Heatley has five more years at $7.5 million left on his deal.

Also, Heatley is $4 million on July 1 as a bonus. If the Blues trade for Heatley before July 1, they have to pay the $4 million. If they trade for Heatley after July 1, that means Ottawa would have paid the bonus and the Senators will be asking for more in the deal.

The Blues are not pursuing anything regarding Heatley at this point.

FYI - JR's chat today is filled with lots of interesting tidbits (not just draft related). Recommended reading.

Good news- all of it.

The only way, IMO, that Perron should be traded is if the Blues just absolutely could not pay him and had no other choice. If that's not the case- I honestly have a hard time seeing a justification to deal him.

I figured that Heatley would be too much and it appears I was right. Obviously everyone in the NHL would like to have Heatley on their team. Actually pulling it off is something else again. Stick with the young core that we have and push forward. There's nothing wrong in the world with that and I'm glad that Blues management seems to feel the same way. Let's not go back to pre-lockout St. Louis Blues transactions pleez. Kthanx

That Harding tidbit is quite interesting. Wonder what's up with that or what we would have to swing to acquire him.

I could care less about the draft itself. We aren't picking in the Top 10 and we sure as hell ain't moving up. I'm more interested in what team David Perron belongs to come Sunday and what we got in return for him...


Oshie, Berglund, Perron, Polak, None of them coming from the top ten. All reasons to be excited about our 17th


There is reason to be excited about every pick.
Quite often top 10 picks never even work out and it's your picks in the teens or even in the later rounds that end up being the best ones in the entire draft.
You never know.

But yeah, trade talk on draft day is fun stuff. :letsgoblues:


Just ask detoilet.

The Blues interviewed Landon Ferraro (Ray Ferraro's son) last Thursday. Center, Red Deer (WHL).

He is projected to go late first round by the experts out there.

6-foot, 170-pounds.

Skilled and fast.

He won the fastest-skater competition at the WHL Prospects Game in January.

"Nose for the net."

Quote:
"He's always on the right side of the puck," said Blair MacDonald of NHL Central Scouting. "If there's a turnover, he's in good position right away. And he comes back deep in his own zone to help. He's very strong defensively, as well as being an offensive threat."

No doubt they interviewed MANY players, but I thought this was interesting.


Interesting. Keep pumping out the updates SIU & thanks.

Thank goodness. Stay the course I say.

Why are there always rumors involving Kessel? Why would the Bruins want to move a young scoring forward?

If you read the original Swedish article, you will see that prospect found it strange that all the staff were wearing sequined hats and vests and that C & C Music Factory's "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everbody Dance Now)" was blasting from a nearby stereo.
