I'm going to take a second to laugh at the Red Wings for doing absolutely nothing.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Childish and immature? Yup. Don't care.

St. Louis Blues

The $28 million for Paul Stastny is a lot, but the four years are perfect. He provides them with a true center and someone that can give the Blues the depth up the middle they lacked. Plus there’s that adorable homecoming aspect to his signing there. Carl Gunnarson could be a great partner for Kevin Shattenkirk. But when all is said and done, are we going to remember this as the summer the Blues signed Jori Lehtera? GRADE: A+

I'm plenty happy with The Blues getting Stastny and signing Lehterä, and trading for Gunnarsson and Husso. I don't feel bad that they didn't trade Schwartz + for Spezza.

Their offence will be better (but, they'd better change their PP strategy).

Their defence will be better.

Their goaltending will be similar to last season's (before Miller). That should be good enough with the added scoring.

We just have to see if they can turn it up a notch during the playoffs. This season will be interesting to watch.

Yea they were talking about that on NHL Network radio last week. The radio announcers basically decided that that was probably the best the Red Wings could do and had to overpay to keep him in town. If there was any doubt, Detroit is absolutely on the decline. This free agent period has made it clear that players don't want to go there and with their Datsyuk/Zetterberg core running out of steam... very shortly the Dead Things will be missing the playoffs. Looking that way. Not sad about it.

Yeah apparently they went after all the free agent defencemen like: Orpik and Boyle. I also read that since nobody wanted to go to Detoilet that there trying to trade for the Caps Mike Green.

Didn't figure this warranted it's own thread. Blues sign David Shields to 1 year, 2 way deal. Former 6th rounder.

E-mail

ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today the club has signed defenseman David Shields to a one-year, two-way contract.

Shields, 23, dressed in 55 regular season games for the Blues’ American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Chicago Wolves last season, posting a professional career-high 15 points (five goals and 10 assists).

In addition, he appeared in three postseason games with the club, serving two penalty minutes.

The 6-foot-4, 206-pound defenseman has spent the past three seasons in the Blues’ minor league system after a four-year stint in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) with the Erie Otters (2007-2011).

Overall, Shields has accumulated 24 points (five goals, 19 assists) in 162 regular season AHL games, while he also produced six points (one goal, five assists) in a 12-game regular season stint with the Blues’ former East Coast Hockey League (ECHL) affiliate, Alaska Aces.

The Buffalo, New York native was originally drafted by the Blues in the sixth round, 168th overall, of the 2009 Entry Draft.

Hah...I just wanted to try out the 'east coast elitist' slam. I don't like it. This is the last time I ever defend David Shields or his parents/family.

Heatley signed a 1 yr, 1 mil deal with the Ducks. I know he had a down year last year, but this could be sneaky good. They added Kesler and Heatley to an already good offense.

He's been in a pretty steep dive performance wise, but the cash is so little that it is worth a try. Interesting move.

I know Heatley has his problems, but you'd think 1 yr/$1 mil would be a safe enough contract for any team to take a risk on. He might have been a good shot in the arm for our power play.
