The St. Louis Blues have more salary cap space than any team in the National Hockey League today, more than $20 million. The franchise is operating on a tight budget. But the new Tom Stillman ownership group would consider adding some salary this spring if the right trade opportunity presented itself.So general manager Doug Armstrong has hit the road to survey some possibilities. His regular presence at Philadelphia Flyers games leads the Philadelphia Daily News to believe he doing some business.Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren is feeling some heat with his high-paid team struggling. This man loves to sign players to comically oversized contracts and then dump them so he can sign different players to comically oversized contracts.How Holmgren keeps his job doing this year after a year is a mystery, but, hey, good for him.If Holmgren could convince Danny Briere to waive his full no-movement clause – which would take some doing – the Blues would have to at least consider the scena...
