Berglund is to be reevaluated in four months, so the Blues are searching for a replacement. Armstong said that it is better to figure this out now rather than during the regular season, explaining, "We know we're going to get a good player back sometime in the new year."
This has made Blues fans happy. Not the injury, but simple Berglund taking a break. He hasn't had a 40+ point season since 2010-2011. It is hard to see him struggle because I grew up watching him, Paul Karyia, and Brad Boyes win games for us in shootouts. Now he is taking the role of an offensive Eric Brewer. He isn't producing... And the fans have noticed.
In conclusion, we are sad to see a fellow Blue in pain, but are excited to see what opportunity this opens up for the renewed Blues this upcoming season.
