BLUE NO MORE

If the Blues do sign Radek Dvorak today, they have 2 pretty solid lines up front. The top 6 forwards would be:

Tkachuk - Weight - Guerin
Cajanek - Rucinsky - Dvorak

American and Czech lines. This already should give Blues fans a reason to soon forget the dismal 05/06 season.
The Blues also added Dan Hinote this summer to shore up the 3rd line, and also acquired Manny Legace, who will solidify the goaltending position for the first time in over a season.
The same can be said about newly signed Jay McKee on defence, as well as a productive, complete season from Eric Brewer, who still hasn't found his stride in St. Louis yet.
All of a sudden the Blues don't look completely lost in the Central Division. The Blues can now compete with the likes of Detroit, Nashville, Columbus, and the piece of cake Black Hawks.
Contrary to my predictions (dammit..) the Blues could make the playoffs and be the turnaround team of the year, especially as far as a points increase goes.
Way to go, John Davidson! He must be sitting in his chair right now thinking.."Oh Baby!"

**UPDATE** The Blues have signed Dvorak to a deal today: a 1 year $1.0 million contract. Hat tip to Beaner.

It's hard to make predictions when the season is still two months away. You should do an updated one now that you know more about where most teams are at financially and with personnel.

I bet we'd agree on plenty, although I still think you are selling the Canucks short and giving too much to the Panthers.

From a guy who thinks the Leafs have four solid lines this year. He actually compared them to the Sabres of last year. In the same sentance he claimed he could dominate hockey pools against the pro's.

Someone thinks he had a few too many Captains last night.

Temujin-I agree. For one, I under estimated the Rangers. The Canucks will finish 9th though, I stand by that.

Hodge, the Leafs do have four solid lines this year, and I was saying that reminded me of how the Sabres use 4 lines. People underestimate some of the Leafs youth.
The only problem for the Leafs may be Raycroft.
