I'll only be worried about Babcock leaving if Hitchcock leaves the blues. And really not even that worried then. Why would babs go to another rebuild (oilers, leafs, sabers) when he just lived through ours..
Babs will be back in hockeytown. Let's just hope we can sign an actually quality rh d man (no offense Zid).
St. Louis will do everything in their power to keep him. He's definitely not the problem there. The article says that they should have around 4 mill in cap space to sign him but it also projects the cap at 69 mill.. but the latest projections (this morning per prohockeytalk, http://prohockeytalk...-71-5-million/)have the cap projected at 71.5 million.. which, if their cap situation plays out as the article suggests, gives them 6.5 mill to work with. That would be more than enough. I think Tarasenko will get a bridge type of contract for 2-3 years before signing long term and I don't see why st louis wouldn't match any offer he could get. Also, I doubt KH would want to give up the draft picks necessary.. but, stranger things have happened. Who knows. I don't really have a doubt in my mind that he'll be in st. Louis next season though.
