After the Sobotka debacle (yes, that is the word I'm choosing to use for it) it only knocks the Blues offseason score, in my eyes, a little bit.
Let's say from an A to a B+.
Stastny was huge. We had to get either him or Spezza. We've been bashing the Blues on this message board for depth up the middle, with legitimate point producers and we got one. I wish we would've landed Spezza but sith happens, we didn't give up anything more than money to the best available center in free agency. That is a MASSIVE win.
Berglund... well... here's hoping he plays better? Nothing pisses me off more than a big-bodied forward that doesn't use it so I have never loved the guy from the start. Here's hoping he plays better! (Trademark, St. Louis Blues, 2009)
Sobotka fail and Ott signing... Again we just have to hope and pray this works out and Ott settles in. No other choice.
I would similarly adjust my 'grade' for Armstrong as well. Failed to complete his remaining assignments on time. Returned to bad habit of signing crappy ex-Stars that we thought he might have gotten over.
