Blues getting younger in a hurry

07:22 AM ET 06.11 | Thanks in part to Scott Nichol and Andy McDonald, the tune of the Blues these days is new age. If the Blues choose not to re-sign free agent Jamie Langenbrunner, and that's a situation expected to head into next month still unresolved, the club would be without its three oldest players from last season. Minus Nichol (38), Langenbrunner (37) and McDonald (35), defenseman Barret Jackman would be the Blues' eldest player under contract at 32. The team would not have a single forward in his 30s, topping out with Alexander Steen, David Backes and Chris Porter at 29. Age is sometimes irrelevant, but remember it was by design when the Blues brought in veterans such as Langenbrunner, Nichol and Jason Arnott two seasons ago.

Yes but which defenseman are they going to trade to Toronto, Shattenkirk or Pietrangelo?

Toronto wont make Kessler available for the trade

No worse then the NBC announcers who kept saying Brad Richards was playing in the CHI-LAK series.

Danny, would you part with Captain D for one of those guys?

I think all STL needs is some veteran leadership on their D line

St Louise is a goal scorer away from being a serious threat.

Yup. You got it Pontiac.

Hell! Not re-signing Jamie Langenbrunner alone lowers the median age of the tam by 10 years. Same with the Oilers when Khabivodka moves on this summer.

Well ... St. Louise is more ... um ... gender neutral, more inclusive. Don't want angry fembos chewing on PA Dave's arse!

That's what happens when you get Benjamin Button on your team.

I hope they kick butt all next season, and take 1st place.

With Timonen retiring, Holmgren better be.
