It's pretty simple. If something presents itself that you like, sure. But you don't have to make those deals now.
What happened to that Red Wave?
At this point, you'd have to say yes - it sure looks like the window is closing. But let's check back on that subject in say, mid-January.
I wonder if there's any space in Enterprise to have an exhibit. Or anyplace in ballpark village.
And sorry, I skipped the answer to the Rosen question. He has been very consistent compared to almost all of the others. But keep in mind, he hasn't been playing against No. 1 or No. 2 lines. In order to get consistently more minutes, he'd have to work his way into the top four. D-men. I think Mikkola is ahead of him as the next option in the top 4 - if (for example, Krug was dropped to the third pairing).
He was OK, maybe a little better than OK. Need more offense out of him. The minutes will be good for him in Springfield, and should make him better the next time he's called up.
I can't explain. Not at all.
You're in the wrong chat for Hot Stove League advice. See @dgoold.
My guess: Just about how the lines are shaking out with Kyrou going on the Schenn line instead of the Thomas line.
I think Tarasenko likes playing on the Thomas line.
I did not. During hockey season I usually don't stray too far from the sports pages.
I don't think it's a locker room issue. The sense I get is that Tarasenko is liked and respected in the locker room. As to what he would fetch, I'm not sure. If you're Armstrong, are you going more towards prospects and draft picks? Or trying to get someone who could help you now?
Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying you don't trade one or both. I just don't think you do it now - unless it's just an overwhelming offer.
It's on pace to be the worst in Blues history, or at least since the NHL tracked PK efficiency - which I think started in '77-78. I think the Blues are too passive on the PK. They missed Bortuzzo while he was out injured. They miss Bozak. But it's surprising it's been this bad - at least since the first five or six games of the season.
No promises, but I'll try to give it a look
Well, Matthew DeFranks is not here yet. He starts in January. In the short term, he's replacing Tom Timmermann who's sliding over to soccer basically full time. In a little bit of the longer-term, he'll replace me. I'm pushing 70.
OK, have time for another question or two before we shut this down. Speak now or wait till next week.
Isaac Bruce and Martin Kilcoyne have mentioned that to me before.
OK, that's it for this week. Thanks as always for participating Until next time. . . . .
