kariya goes for money, certainty

Paul Kariya has signed with the St Louis Blues for way more money than the Predators could offer him.

So much for him wanting to play for a contender. The Blues will be a playoff team next year, but not much else. Given their overall weakness in the past few years, i think this is a lateral move in terms of competitiveness. I think it is clear that Kariya signed with them not as a contender, but as a team willing to pay him more and with a stable ownership situation.

And it looks like all the speculation (which i agreed with) that Kariya would avoid a major hockey market because he doesn't like too much of a spotlight was dead on. No Vancouver, Montreal, etc. He moved to one of the markets in the league that has averaged lower attendance than Nashville in recent years.

Oh - and the on-ice sessions at prospect camp were canceled today. No reason given that i have heard.
