I will not boycott the Blues. St Louis had 3 player actually at the negotiations trying to end the lockout. Stillman certainly did not want to buy a team and immediately have the league go into a doggone lockout. Heck, little he could do being the most junior owner in the league. Boycotting the Blues for the actions of the other idiot owners when the Blues players actually worked on trying to end this thing sooner seems silly.
Want to boycott Minnesota, Washington, Boston, and the other ass-hat owners who were trying to get out of the massive contracts they offered, go right ahead. Just realize St Louis was NOT part of the problem as to why the lockout occurred and should not be held accountable for the actions of the other morons.
This pretty much sums up how I feel too. I was pretty upset and I think we all had a right to be. But the Blues weren't part of the problem. I heard Barrett Jackman admit on a STL Radio show (ITD Morning After) that it really was a waste of time and they probably could have agreed to the same deal months ago. But that's over now and hockey is back.
I mentioned in another thread, I could about guarantee you that Stillman in no way wanted this lockout. The Blues were one of the few smart franchises not tossing around ridiculous 10 year deals. They were giving out 2 year 'prove yourself' deals, and then awarding players with 4-5 year deals after that. Smart business. As the games get closer, I get more fired up that Blues hockey is back.
