Hey, lookit who has to have another spare part replaced! Why, it's the captain of the St. Louis Blues, Eric Brewer! The Post-Dispatch is reporting that he had to have knee surgery Thursday to repair something he tweaked while rehabbing his second back surgery. Yes, you read that right.
No clue when he's projected to return now, but seriously - we haven't had a captain on the ice or in the locker room since God finished kindergarten. Could we maybe take one of our assistant captains and promote him for the time being? How about Walt? Everyone looks up to him anyway, so why not? That, and he very rarely gets hurt... which is impressive, since he's older than Brewer.
Let the speculation as to who takes Brewer's spot for the first part of the season begin!
