Blues GMs better than you think

To rank the Blues GMs (whether it be Larry Pleau or Doug Armstrong or even if you want to throw John Davidson into the mix) 22nd, as you did in your March 30 issue, is a joke!

You mentioned the acquisitions of Chris Mason and B.J. Crombeen and the Colaiacovo/Steen trade, but what about the drafting of T.J. Oshie, David Perron, Patrick Berglund, Eric Johnson, Jay McClement, David Backes and Roman Polak?

The Doug Weight for Andy McDonald trade? The signings of Brad Winchester and Mike Weaver to help re-build the system so it could absorb the losses of Johnson, Eric Brewer and Paul Kariya? The decision not to abandon the re-building plan to make a big deadline trade and the decision to keep Andy Murray after last year's collapse and the rough start this year?

I want a recount!
