1) A new coach
Fans tolerate Murray when we're winning...and I'm one of them...but his act wears thin real quick when the team is struggling.
really enlightening Curt.
In seriousness, I agree. When a coach has the talent and the team isn't winning, it falls on the coach. Granted, that we "have the talent" can definitely be disputed but its not like we got AHL'ers playing on the 3rd and 4th lines like we did in 05-06. From the time Murray has taken over till now, the Blues have been nothing but one been streaky team and this season is showing that doesn't look to be changing any time soon and I have GOT to believe that's not all the players. It can't be.
Call me crazy, this actually doesn't bother me. While the Blues may not have a highlight-reel guy out there that produces "night in and night out," what the Blues don't have in a marquee player they make up for with depth. We got more than a handful of guys that can put in at least 20 a year. Feel free to disagree
Never thought I'd say this, you really notice when Brewer and Jackman aren't out there. During the Penguins game this was painfully obvious that we didn't have any steady dmen out there not freaking out half the time. I'm with you guys- give all the young guys the ice they want or can handle, and if the rewards don't fully flesh out this year... let 'em get used to playing alongside one another and next year tear it up. But its either let them play now or go through the pains later. Do it now.
