Blues Fans Optimistic for 2012-13 Despite Free Agency Lull

The St. Louis Blues have been pretty quiet this summer. They’ve retained some of their current players (Jackman, Perron, Langenbrunner, etc) and they’ve reached a deal with Russian prospect Vladimir Tarasenko that will bring the youngster over to the NHL for the first time in his career. Outside of that, there really hasn’t been too much to report. Rumors have linked the Blues to several free agents and several potential trades but so far the team has chosen to stay on its current course. If Tarasenko was the only major news for the team this summer would you be disappointed? This was the question I asked on Twitter and the responses indicate that a large group of fans wouldn’t mind if the team was finished making moves.

Specifically I asked fans on Twitter to rate their disappointment on a scale of one to 10 (one being least disappointed, 10 being most) if Tarasenko was the only major news/signing this summer. The responses flooded in. As you might expect responses varied greatly. However, the average response was that lacking any form of disappointment. On the whole the fans that responded would be content if Tarasenko was the only major change the club makes.
