The St. Louis Blues are in need of scoring and a veteran presence on the bench. Are rumors true that GM Doug Armstrong is interested in adding Jarome Iginla?
Recently, Adrian Dater tweeted the following:
Hearing St. Louis Blues interested in Iginla

While Iginla could be the answer to the Blues veteran problem, they would most likely not have the kind of money to make such a deal. Perhaps the Blues could make such a deal, but it would take signing Chris Stewart and Alex Pietrangelo to budget friendly deals, and I don’t think that is going to happen.
Andy Strickland has been reporting that the Stewart negotiations look as though they are headed for arbitration, but Doug Armstrong has said he is looking to improve the team through a splash in free agency.
Who knows what the Blues have planned, but do you think Iginla is in their future?
More as we have it.
LET’S GO BLUES!
