ST Louis Blues Predicting what Doug Armstrong will do next is a super way to get burned. You can wager wheels are spinning withinside

the mind of the Blues desired manager after Friday’s Game 6 loss to the Avalanche. He won’t sit down once more

and pat himself on the once more for a second-round exit. Overreacting to a sample period of 12 playoff video video games

is not wise. One example is probably turning defenseman Colton Parayko’s very lousy Game 6 proper right into a misinformed take

about his strong postseason. But one postseason can clearly add clarity to the team’s future with positive players.

Full disclosure: I actually have officially retired from the Vladimir Tarasenko prediction business, so he’s now now not

protected below. It has been whispered that Tarasenko has decided he would like to live with the Blues after

last offseason’s trade-request drama gave way to one of the outstanding bounce-once more seasons withinside the league. It is

probably outstanding to concentrate Tarasenko say that loud and smooth heading into the final season of his modern contract.

The Blues and Tarasenko are better off together, this season proved. Hopefully Tarasenko and Armstrong agree on that.
