“… I believe with the Blues is, it’s going to be as much as Doug Armstrong. What does he wish to do right here?  I believe he’s type of had the mentality that if in case you have an concept, simply attain out to him and he’ll contemplate it.

But I simply suppose that it’s going to be as much as him. We know the 12 months they received the Cup, he might have blown the group up and he didn’t. And I don’t suppose this is similar, however I’m not the opinion that counts. His is the opinion that counts and we’ll see what he does.”

Marek: “But that’s simply the factor although, the final time, earlier this season, after they went on that eight-game shedding streak, there have been the howls of begin firing our bodies out the door. Is it going to be O’Reilly or Tarasenko or is it going to be O’Reilly and Tarasenko?

What do you do with this blue line? Did they make the fallacious resolution on the netminding? And Armstrong once more didn’t do something, the Blues rebounded, seven video games in a row. They rip off a pleasant little profitable streak and now they’re type of proper again to the place they have been after they have been shedding once more. Like, they’ve proven they will flip round and win seven video games in a row. They’ve proven they will put collectively, now it’s not going to get any simpler evening in opposition to a veteran group led by arguably the very best goaltender within the recreation in Ilya Sorokin. But this group has proven earlier than, they will fully flip issues round. Which needs to be endlessly irritating for those who’re Doug Armstrong.

Because to your level, the largest success, Stanley Cup occurred while you went in opposition to your preliminary instincts to waive guys and commerce guys.

Again, I’m going again to your mentioning of Doug Armstrong, it is a powerful learn. I do not know who this group is. Doug’s loads nearer to it clearly than I’m, He in all probability has a higher deal with, I simply don’t know what the reply is. I do not know how Doug Armstrong would really feel about this St. Louis Blues group which have misplaced horribly and received spectacularly. Don’t know learn how to learn it.

And via all of it now, there’s the Jordan Binnington query. That shot from the purpose , ooof. There have been a pair however now you bought the goalie query.”

Friedman: “Well, I might say you’ve forgotten to say that grueling Manhattan to Long Island journey back-to-back.

I believe that is completely different. Look, I don’t know what he’s going to do.”
