Blues: Lock up Vladimir Tarasenko long time!

I’ll be quite honest. The St. Louis Blues offseason has been just fine except for one thing. Vladimir Tarasenko hasn’t been signed yet. They resigned Robert Bortuzzo, Chris Butler, Jori Lehtera, Jake Allen and traded T.J. Oshie’s remaining 9 million away to Washington for a decent return. All that is left to do is give their most talented player a long term deal. Please lock...
