08:22 AM ET 11.30 | Unlike many members of the up-and-coming Blues' core, Jamie Langenbrunner sits at the other end of the spectrum. At 37, the forward signed a one-year, $1.25 million extension last summer that in all reality could be the swan song of his 17-year NHL career. He's made approximately $27.4 million over his career, but financially secure or not, a lockout isn't the way he drew up the ending. Still, he stands by his union brethren. ... "I've gotten involved in coaching the kids' teams and quite frankly, I've gotten to enjoy that aspect of it. You realize there is going to be an end to this (lockout) at some point. But it makes me feel when the end (of his career) does come, I'll be prepared for that."

Indeed... One of those guys that you wanted on your team and respected when he wasn't.

I wish him well. He didn't embarass himself or the game.

Agreed. Very good dude, and a great pickup for the Blues last year.

Sad that his final season has to be a casualty of the lockout.

I always loved Jamie. He scored an OT goal against the Kings in the first playoff game I ever went to.
