Cam Janssen. who has entertained crowds here in St. Louis with his pugilistic ways for the past four seasons, was not re-signed by the Blues. Apparently BJ Crombeen is seen as the go-to guy for the fights now, unless Ryan Reaves makes the squad out of camp. For a team that led the league last season in fighting majors with 78, this loss will presumably curtail that just a bit.
No more Cam Smash, as he returns to the only other NHL team to put him on their ice, the New Jersey Devils. Cam broke the news on Twitter:
Great to be a Devil again, STL will always be my home but time head out east!!!
Well, at least he won't have to photoshop himself into his new uniform for his Twitter profile a la Anthony Stewart.
