Vladimir Sobotka's defection to Russia is a big loss, but re-signing Steve Ott is a viable Plan B.
As the versatile center moves on with a 3-year deal to play in Russian league, the Blues re-sign veteran Ott.

Dallas, Colorado, Anaheim and Nashville could all be much stronger this season, making this side of the NHL that much tougher.
A third-round pick in 2012, the 6-foot-5 defenseman since has put on 26 pounds of muscle.
In this episode of Lets Go Blues Radio powered by Fanzlive, the Official App of the Fan, your hosts Jeff Ponder, Currt Price & Jeff Quirin discuss the rare occurance of the St. Louis Blues not having any injuries, we recap games from the past week, our always entertaining Radio Rants segment, and much more lively discussion.
Note: I want to say that the audio issues we had in the first two weeks have been resolved. We have a completely new setup that we are very excited about, (which we'll talk about more next episode) which seems to be working great. So enjoy!
