Blues sign ryan suter for a year at $750k. Performance bonuses can make it up to $3m, but I’m guessing he’s slated as a veteran 6/7 guy.

Unless they have a trade in the works? We have a lot of left dmen now I think (now that cap friendly isn’t free any longer I’m not totally sure)

Yes it is odd; has to be something else in the works?

We were already full on D and think we’re giving Joseph a real shot since we just signed him on only a 1 year deal, and he was pretty good in limited action and was a 1st round pick.

And odd since suter has been labeled a really bad teammate at every stop he’s been on, so odd you’d want that on a team bringing young guys along

ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Blues defenseman Torey Krug is in danger of missing the entire 2024-25 NHL season after being diagnosed with pre-arthritic changes in his left ankle.

The team announced Tuesday that Krug will work to rehabilitate the injury without surgery over the next six to eight weeks before being re-evaluated. If an operation is needed, the 33-year-old would be out for the season.

Krug is considered out indefinitely

I mean, isn't everyone pre-arthritic lol

seems odd, but if he's out then we have 6.5 mil in cap space once on LTIR (I think we're still like 7 mil under the cap anyways so doesn't matter at the moment)

guess it explains the Suter signing...the new Joseph kid and Peru next ones up!


this is an interesting tweet also...

The pain I feel from having Krug on the Blues is a bit north of the ankle.

The injury kills krug’s trade value, though it sounds like he isn’t moving anywhere any time, though it might save the blues some $ if his salary is insured.

Suter signing makes a heck of a lot of sense now. 8 dmen is a pretty reasonable number.

Edit: never heard of that injury before. (At least in terms or sports)
