Could Hull again be the answer?

For the past couple of days Jeremy Rutherford and Bernie Miklasz have written articles about how the Blues need to improve. The main contention is lack of scoring by our "young guns" and waiting for them to develop. I think by now they should have developed into more productive and consistent scorers. I think the Blues should hire Brett Hull as a coach to teach these young guns how to be consistent scorers and if he thinks one or more of them doesn't have what it takes then trade them to another team for its underachieving "young guns." Hull developed into one of the premier scorers in NHL history and I think he can use his knowledge to help them. Maybe a package of David Perron, Jaroslav Halak and/or T.J. Oshie or Patrik Berglund could bring us the missing link that we need to win the cup.

I must point out one thing that the Blues organization could do this offseason that would turn me away from the team forever. Please do not insult my intelligence by saying this team will be better next year because of the improvement of the "young core" of Patrik Berglund, T.J. Oshie, and David Perron. It's is time for all to realize that these players have been in the NHL for five seasons. They are experienced veterans, not youngsters to be coddled. And do not insult my intelligence by calling these three "skill" players. These three "skill" players combined for six points and were minus-10 in a six- game playoff series. To be honest, all three should be categorized as major disappointments. …
