Doug Armstrong will never be able to please all St. Louis Blues fans, but that does not mean he’s not doing a good job. In fact, though he doesn’t make huge waves, the man has done one of the smartest jobs of any Blues general manager in a long time, if not ever.
Armstrong continued to play the smart game by re-signing Nathan Walker and also extending qualifying offers to six of the team’s pending restricted free agents. Walker was technically an unrestricted free agent since he hit the age and professional (that includes AHL) experience requirements.
