1. Oskar Sundqvist
Oskar Sundqvist finally made his long-awaited return to St. Louis after a brief hiatus with the Detroit Red Wings and the Minnesota Wild. He resigned with the Blues after six years with St. Louis for one year and a $775,000 salary.
A Sundqvist extension would not be costly, and it makes the most sense more than any other player getting an extension on the current Blues’ roster. He is loved by many and plays the game that head coach Craig Berube loves.
Sundqvist struggled with injuries over the last two seasons away from the Blues, but when he is healthy, Sundqvist is a vital part of the Blues’ bottom-six forward group and gives the team a physical presence who can also kill penalties.
Out of the entire group of players under contract by the Blues, no extension would be better than one for Sundqvist. The Stanley Cup champion is a fan favorite and loves to be a Blue. He should be extended yesterday.
