All week leading up to Sunday, July 1, we’ll be profiling unrestricted free agents and speculating where they might end up.

Jamie Langenbrunner (RW)

Age: 36

2011-12 cap hit: $2.75 million

The skinny:

While it was difficult to gather much information concerning the future of fellow veteran forward Jason Arnott, the general feeling is that the Blues want Jamie Langenbrunner back. Jeremy Rutherford’s report suggests as much while Michael Russo advises the Minnesota Wild to grab the winger if the Blues let him go.

Langenbrunner’s numbers were hardly impressive last season — he received just 14:37 minutes of ice time per game, scoring 24 points in 70 games.

On the other hand, the Blues are a youngish team and Langenbrunner’s won two Stanley Cups on two different teams, so he’s got the wily veteran thing going for him.

    Jamie ” The Legend” Langenbrunner and Arnott both need to return to the Blues next season.
    both of these guys were invaluable veteran presences in the locker room. neither one put up a lot of points but they both had a knack for scoring key goals or assisting on them in games during the regular season. our team is still very young and we have a couple young highly skilled new guys ie- Schwartz and Terasenko that would benefit greatly from learning all the tricks of the trade from 2 very sucessful wingers in Langenbrunner and Arnott.

    too bad 44 isn’t returning I really hope langs returns but honestly arnott doesn’t fit in on the depth chart the blues will be fine we just need garrison and fast forward to October :D

    44 over “the legend” anyday of the week. arnnot has got at least 15 goals in him and langs has more like 5 quite honestly but the veteran presence that Jamie provides is priceless
