The Blues need someone to pair up with pietrangelo. And the Blues as you remember from the playoffs petro went down, no one was there to carry the load.. Shattenkirk could not handle it by himself. Figuring that Jason Garrison signed 6 years 4.7/year. Figuring carle will recieve 4 years about 4.9/ year.. Now carle will most likely wait till suter goes. The blues do have cap space, but with the new ownership. They don't want to have a bad contract on there hands. Imagine petro paired up with carle. Matt will get plenty more points.. And the defense for the blues will have a pretty good core.. With taresenko signing today.. The blues should make a good run like last year. the kids are no longer kids anymore. Time for them to mature and show there true potential. Berglund,oshie,perron,halak.. 4 main players that need to step up next year. Any thoughts on this?
