The St. Louis Blues have done the smart thing in constructing their 2023-24 roster. While Doug Armstrong proved that we should not assume anything, the overall point remains the same.
Most of us assumed the Blues were done when they acquired Kevin Hayes via trade and then used all nine of their draft picks. Then, he surprised us by bringing back Oskar Sundqvist on a one-year, veteran minimum contract.
Of course, as with any roster movement, not everyone is happy about it. I saw some social media posts talking about how the poster liked Sundqvist, but thought it was time to give guys like Alexei Toropchenko, Nikita Alexandrov or Sammy Blais the look.
