Doug Armstrong and the Blues added another returning face to the lineup by re-signing Magnus Paajarvi to a 1-year contract worth $700,000. No doubt that Armstrong is bringing Paajarvi back for a depth role in case one of the ‘young guns’ does not pan out throughout training camp and/or the season. Paajarvi will have to do better this season than his 3 goals and 9 points throughout 48 games this past season.
