First up, a bit of news. The Blues and defenseman Roman Polak are in the midst of discussing contract terms. Polak received a qualifying offer of $522,500 but is hoping to negotiate a multi-year extension.
Hockeybuzz.com has been reporting a possible three way trade that could involve the Blues. In that scenario, the Wild would end up with Dany Heatley from the Senators and the Blues would end up with goalie, Josh Harding. Don’t be surprised if the Blues try and sign Harding to an offer sheet.
Detroit Free Press reports that the Wings have decided not to offer a new contract to goalie, Ty Conklin. It’ll be interesting to see if the Blues take a run at Conklin.
NJ.com has an interview with Devils backup goalie, Scott Clemmensen. Looks like he might well hit free agency on Wednesday too. The Blues might be spoilt for choice for a good backup.
Andy Strickland is reporting interest from the Blues in signing UFA Sergei Zubov. He also states that Jeff Woywitka is not expecting a qualifying offer by today’s deadline and that BJ Crombeen has countered a two year offer he received from the Blues. Crombeen expects to hear back from the Blues shortly.
That’s it for today…unless something major hits, of course.
