Vladimir Sobotka: Moved to First Line

Update: Sobotka will skate on the Blues' first line, along with David Backes and T.J. Oshie, Wednesday night against the Bruins, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Recommendation: St. Louis head coach Ken Hitchcock is shuffling some players in response to the foot injury that removes Jamie Langenbrunner for the next four weeks, at a minimum. Hitchcock likes to slide Sobotka all over the lines, and he's made cameos on the first line at times. If he stays with Backes and Oshie long term, there could be some value had.
