I am concerned with Karlsson and his wonky groin...it seems to always be a thing with him now he is at the age where he is starting to break down and it comes a lot from not taking care of yourself so i'm not sure how important to have a player of his skill level if he is always hurt in key games....like the playoffs.
I'm with you, but I don't think we need to go as far as Karlsson.
I'm not saying I don't want him and that it wouldn't be amazing. I'm A) just not a huge fan of putting that much money for that long into any one player, and B) Think we have enough pieces, that they can be extremely successful with a Myers or Trouba or someone.
As a Blues fan I just wanted to say that the Stars were the team that gave me the most concern going into the playoffs. I hated that we had to play y'all since both teams play a similar style and are extremely talented, It was a great series that could easily have gone the other way.
Had it done that, I believe it would be the Stars ascending to the Cup finals instead of my beloved Blues. We got lucky but sometimes it's luck that makes all the difference.
For the record, Parayko-Bouwmeester has become our #1 lockdown tandem as the playoffs progressed and they've been pure money for us. Taking nothing at all away from the Bruins D (which has been excellent) but the Blues have the edge in depth on the blueline in my book. Assuming Dunn doesn't play (and I wouldn't bet that he will since he's got a broken jaw), the way things are set up now according to MoneyPuck, I'd still take our third pairing of Bortuzzo-Gunnarsson over Clifton-Moore.
I know- right ?
I have worked with really arrogant guys in the production world from Boston. (and some cool ones- but far more douches)
They are actually worse than New York crew because, well, it's not even New York and they act like they're the hottest guys not in LA.
for the record LA guys are the worst.
Screw Boston - Go Blues
