Miller and Ott will join the team in Phoenix, where the Blues play Sunday.
More information will be available soon.

Worst thing we gave up was a 1st rounder.
I call it a success for now. Obviously this deal will be judged on if we make a run at Lord Stanley.

1. That means Allen is sitting on the bench in STL instead of playing in Chicago.
2. If Miller gets hurt (god forbid), that would put Allen as our 1st string goalie with I don't even know who as our backup. That would be a disaster come the playoffs.

Would've rather had Moulson but I'll take Ott. I hate to see Stewart go, but I don't think he was ever going to blossom in St. Louis and he's in the East, so we don't see much of them.
