The St. Louis Blues need a top line center who can put up points, enter free agent Tyler Bozak.

Although Bozak will have a lot of interest around him, his price point is right around where the St. Louis Blues would like to be. If the Blues were able to lock up a guy like Bozak, it wouldn’t be a stretch to think that Armstrong could unload some salary through a trade.

Pierre LeBrun recently tweeted that the Blues are still in the mix to sign the coveted free agent:

Should the St. Louis Blues be able to land Bozak, it could impact the ongoing negotiations with Chris Stewart and Alex Pietrangelo.

Previously I had covered why the Blues may have interest, but if he does come to St. Louis he will have to find another number…

Stay tuned for more as we have it.

LET’S GO BLUES!
