BLUES EXPLORING ALL OF THEIR OPTIONS

The St. Louis Blues have won just five of their last 15 games and despite already making a coaching change and losing a goalie off waivers, more moves are expected.
The Blues are third-last in the Western Conference with an underwhelming 11-14-4 record and a minus-15 goal differential.
Blues GM Doug Armstrong has been exploring a multitude of options as it relates to roster changes and the team could be looking to shake up part of its roster in an attempt to get back on track.
Earlier this week, the Blues lost goalie Chad Johnson on waivers after he was claimed by the Anaheim Ducks.
For now, Jake Allen is the only goalie on the team with significant NHL experience – the recently called-up Jordan Binnington played just 13 minutes of one game during the 2015-16 season.
It’s unclear what type of deal the Blues are trying to complete, though two separate league sources believe the team might be focusing on a major move.
There has been plenty of speculation surrounding a number of St. Louis’ players lately, and several teams have picked up the phone and called Armstrong to inquire about the likes of Alex Pietrangelo, who is currently on long-term injured reserve, Colton Parayko, Jaden Schwartz and Alex Steen, but that doesn’t mean the Blues are interested in moving them.
Steen, 34, has two-years left on his current contract and also owns a full no-trade clause.
