Jeremy Rutherford: Blues GM Doug Armstrong on forward Vladimir Tarasenko: “He’s skating with the team on a regular basis. That puts him closer to the end of the tunnel than the start of the tunnel but he’s still a ways a way. I expect him to come on our next road trip… but not to play, just to assimilate himself with our team.”
Jim Thomas: Armstrong continued: “We’re not going to thrust him into a situation where he’s not capable of defending himself in a corner, in a puck battle … He’s not going to come back until we’re 100 percent comfortable that he’s going to be able to protect himself in those situations.
