The 2011-12 team looks like this:

Boyes - McDonald - Backes
Perron - Berglund - Oshie
Steen - McClement - (empty)
(empty) - (empty) - (empty)

Johnson - Polak
Pietrangelo - Jackman
(empty) - (empty)

Halak
(empty)

It'll take $20-30M to re-sign the players in bold (~$45M payroll), with Cole, Junland, Sonne, McRae, Ponich, Taresenko, and Schwartz in the pipeline. We haven't signed anyone this offseason, but we give the 2010-11 team prime playing time. Then, in 2011-12, we fill those (empty) spots with Cole, Junland, Sonne, McRae, Taresenko, Schwartz, and Allen. 17 of 20 players (85%) would be Blues' draft picks. (Halak, Steen, McDonald)

I would rather have the Payne Trayne throw some form of D'Bris on the ice, like a cone, or cotton candy. That air-sugar could slow some skates down.

What makes you think we'll be trying to win next year either? Sure can't be current results...

We need one more solid player to round out the top 3 lines, then the merry-go-round fourth line. Can anyone on this team be that player, or would it be Taresenko?
