Blues Qualify Pronger

TSN is reporting that the St. Louis Blues have given a qualifying offer to Chris Pronger. Now, Pronger is an excellent player that every team should want. But the Blues simply do not have any room for this. There is no way they can be competitive with Pronger, Tkachuk and Weight. They have also publicly stated that they will only spend around $30 million.

Now, this does not mean Pronger is going to the Blues. But it does mean that they have the right to match any offer he is given.

Here is an excellent post by Jes Golbez on the future of the Blues.
