    The Blues` ownership

    The Blues` ownership has really let the fans of the team and St. Louis down after this season in my opinion. We're made broken promises and this isn't the first time, its been 3 years in a row the Blues are suppose to be a playoff-caliber unit. Yet the result is the same, a solid start in the first half of the season, but after the All Star break a collapse in the second half of the season. As a fan base should we be really, really excited and jumping for joy for trading Johnson and McClement to Colorado for Stewart and Shattenkirk? BTW, I am not saying it was a poor trade, Stewart is just as good as any foward on the roster with the exception of Backes in my humble opinion. Backes is tied 25th in the NHL with 23 goals, both Backes and Steen tie for 48th overall in the league with 46 points. This is unacceptable as we knew this team needed a true power foward the entire off-season. Halak, Stewart, and Shattenkirk are good pick-ups, but please bring us a power F. I am not afraid to say it either, we have seen the likes of Kariya, Tkachuck, Turgeon, and Hull in this uniform before, the Blues won't reach the playoffs any time soon without an elite game-changer.
