    Analysis: Jonathan Cheechoo, who's had a good training camp so far, led the Blues with six shots on goal and had few good scoring chances. "A real easy chance to go right up to the top of that list... he had chances early," coach Davis Payne said of Cheechoo. "A guy gets his cracks, eventually it's going to go in... He's around the net, knows how to get a stick to a spot where he can get it back, has an outlet. At some point, you figure one of these is going to go in for him."

Five seasons ago Cheechoo led the NHL in scoring with 56 goals, and now he's fighting for one of the two open forward spots on the Blues' roster. "It's a valid question," Cheechoo said when asked what happened to his career after the 2005-06 season. "I lost a little bit of confidence, the injuries added up after a while … I just wasn't getting it done. I can't make any excuses. But I'm coming into this camp with a fresh start and trying to show what I can do out there." Cheechoo will need to clear waivers for the Blues to send him down to AHL Peoria, so he has that working for him in his quest to remain in the NHL.
