Yeah I was thinking that Halak is probably the happiest guy in the room today. That guy seemed ticked (and I would be too) when he got dealt - cause he led you guys all season and kept winning and then for some reason upper mgmt decides that the goalie position is the problem and deal him away. Sometimes the deals you DON"T make are the best ones. Miller's stock is still high because of the 2010 Olympics and that gold medal game which American fell in love with him for. But I think if something isn't broke (Halak) you don't fix it.


I referred to this a "pursuing folly." Acting against your own self interest while at least some critics point out at the time that that is what you are doing. It is the sort of high profile move that should get you fired if you are wrong.

NHL network last night was playing up that 2-year comparison for you guys. It is really freaky just how similar the results were - not so much blowing a 2-0 series lead but rather just how the games ended with the same guys getting the winning goals in 1 and 2, and the same exact score in games 4 and 5, and a shutout that matched game 3 from the prior year. Definitely one of the most coincidental things I've ever seen.

But overall the analysis seems to be about the same coming from all the 'experts' that I heard and it was this:
1) While Miller played well in games 1-5 he was not able to 'steal' a game. Also some are questioning the trade to move Halak and that what was really needed was to keep Halak and bring a sniper to St. Louis at the trade deadline (i.e. Gaborik and a few others were available that they said the Blues passed on)
2) The lack of PP killed you guys and most notably in game 6 when you had 6 consecutive PPs
3) Lack of a star player. Maybe this is being said to fuel the Ovie to St. Louis discussion but the thought was you guys have excellent forwards but not a 'star'.
