07:24 AM ET 06.12 | When the Blues broke for the offseason, Vladimir Tarasenko took a to-do list back to Russia. "We've given him a clear mandate on what we expect when he gets back here, what we're going to see from him on a conditioning level, the grind that he's going to have to do," Blues general manager Doug Armstrong said recently. ... [We] need him to take ownership of his conditioning and his training and his preparation, just as we need (Jaden) Schwartz to take control of it. At 21-22 (years old), they're still learning the game on the ice. They have to become pros off the ice. That was the mandate of (Tarasenko) going back ... we're penciling him into important positions on our team and he'll never have a chance to fill those if he's not in shape."

Hanging out with Panckae Man wouldn't work too good either.
