    New Blues Providing Life After Trade Deadline Fire Sale

    When the St. Louis Blues decided to move on from their top pending unrestricted free agents before the 2023 Trade Deadline, the public opinion was that the remainder of the season would be that of doom and gloom. With three first-round draft picks in the 2023 NHL Entry Draft, this year is set to become a year that could help restock a mediocre prospect pool and help nudge it in the right direction. The players brought into the fold after moving on from franchise icons like Ryan O'Reilly and Vladimir Tarasenko flew under the radar with Blues general manager (GM) Doug Armstrong taking a chance on project-type players Jakub Vrána and Kasperi Kapanen, along with a reunion with former Blue, Sammy Blais.

Without Cahill, we wouldn't have soccer as we know it today.
