08:24 AM ET 02.12 | Forgive St. Louis for singing the Blues Tuesday morning, the morning after watching Jaroslav Halak's would-be comeback evaporate. Now the Blues head out onto the road, starting Wednesday night at Detroit against the surging Red Wings. Uh, oh! This debacle left fans wondering if the general manager Doug Armstrong needs to so something. (Since he was in Toronto watching the Maple Leafs and Flyers play, the rumor mill started churning for real.) No contender has more salary cap space to work with right now. Does Armstrong need to give the team's chemistry a jolt? Does he need to add a another veteran goaltender, since rookie Jake Allen has given little indication he is ready to carry a load? Something has to give.

True enough Danny but as a Leaf fan I thought you knew more about #2?

What they really said was, "We still gotta pay the stupid **** **** so let's make him show up everyday for more shame."

A scout I believe. His first assignment, scouting a pond hockey game in Kugluktuk.
