Blues Send Seven More Down

The St. Louis Blues sent down seven players, either to the minors or to a European club. Jeff Woywitka and Jason Bacashihua were more of the notable players heading down to Peoria of the AHL. Woywitka was listed on the last team update, but has now failed to crack the squad, making an opening for possibly a different seventh defenseman. With Bacashihua going down, it just leaves Manny Legace and Hannu Toivonen manning the net in St. Louis coming opening night.

Martin Kariya, David Perron and Roman Polak remain in camp and it's my estimation that they'll get a pretty long look heading into the season at this point. I could be wrong though... Yan Statsny and Matt Walker could probably ease their way into the line-up as well.
