Stacking the Pads

Just the tip of the goalie news iceberg

Well it's about time

The waiting is over for Manny Legace- he finally got a date to the prom, and this year the prom is in St. Louis. It has baffled me all summer that he was unclaimed for this long. He had a banner year, hitting career highs in games played (51), wins (37), and shutouts (7), with a 2.19 GAA and .915 save percentage. Somehow he ended up with the blame for Detroit's disappointing first-round exit from the playoffs placed squarely on his shoulders, and it wasn't just his former team who wasn't biting, he wasn't getting calls from anyone.

The press says he'll battle Curtis Sanford (13-13-5) and Jason Bacashihua (4-10-1) for the number one spot in St. Louis, but really, how much of a battle can it be? Unless he's utterly deflated from the playoffs and the fallout thereafter, it seems like a no-brainer to me.

    Out of all of the teams out there that didn't make the playoffs, the St. Louis Blues have the best chance of turning their team around in a hard way this year. I don't know if it J.D. behind the scenes making all of this magic happen, but the acquisitions they've made have made them a dangerous team. Look out western conference!
