Just how injured are the Blues? It seems unlikely Paul Kariya will play this weekend and Patrik Berglund is doubtful for tonight.
Jeff Gordon has the Blues in line behind Chicago for Washington’s Michael Nylander as a fill-in for Andy McDonald, another St. Louis casualty. Gordon isn’t a Nylander fan, but I suspect Blues president John Davidson is from his time watching Nylander in New York, back when Davidson called Ranger games.
If I were a player, it would scare the heck out of me to get sent to St. Louis. It seems like a one-way ticket to some kind of injury. Whoever St. Louis ends up bringing in better have good insurance.
