Now, after appearing sluggish on the ice and going from moments of greatness to moments of complete collapse, many fans believe that Berglund’s time in St. Louis has run out.

    I think if Berg’s would put an unreal effort into getting into better shape and having some hardcore endurance that he could be a real threat in the league, but I don’t see him reaching that far down. I want to see him succeed, but it may take a shock to his system like a change of scenery to get it done.

    All things being equal, Bergie is the RFA I’d be least unhappy about seeing on another team this Fall. I think he has the potential to be a 20-25 goal scorer every year, but it’s just not happening with the Blues. Too inconsistent. I don’t think they’ll get a top-2 Center for him, probably a 3-4 guy & maybe a pick?

      If Berglund is moved I would guess it would be in a package deal to get a top line guy. Backes does not need to be our top line center. Really, if we could pick up a top line center, I would love to see a new guy with Tarasenko and Schwartz on the first line. The Blues need to lean on their scoring talent and hope they develop quickly. Having a solid second and third line could also help the team with matchups late in the game.

        I 100% agree. Backes as #1 Center is sort of like Jackman at #1-2 D-man. Jax is a #3-5 guy and really shined in the short season once he was able to finally play to his level. He was excellent. I can see the same thing happening for Backes playing as the #2 Center IF the Blues can find a guy for the top line.
