Posted Friday January 28, 2011, About: Blues could move Johnson for help up front
Right now, there are problems throughout every position. Forwards aren't scoring enough and our top 3 forwards have had extended time out of the lineup, the defense is pretty darn young with very few games played aside from Cola, Brewer, and Jackman. We have a carousel of minor league D-men coming up and down and to me it seems like Halak has lost a little faith in the D corp.

Lots of injuries and the fact that we have to rely on Winchester, Crombeen and random Peoria player to fill in extra minutes due to our injuries... its hurting the team.

On the note of Johnson, the dude has tons of potential. Back when came back from the olympics last year, the dude was a changed man, played like a stud, found his offensive game. I think a lot of that has to do with playing with some of the best D-men in the world. No disrespect Jackman or Brewer, but they are not of the caliber. I feel like we need a stronger leader on the D corp, someone all of our young guys can learn a lot of from, who can provide the leadership they need and who can be able to lead by example. Right now, thats like asking for the moon....

Backes is a class act. He is great in the community and he is one of leaders of the Blues. Its a shame he has to learn on the fly with little support from anyone else. Its not surprising he is humble about his selection, being happy to be there and just glad to be representing his team.

Jeff Gordon, the guy who wrote this bit of nonsense doesn't follow the team. He speculates about them without having any facts, I'd take anything he says with several grains of salt.
