After the Detroit Red Wings chose to cut ties with Manny Legace earlier in the summer, the veteran goaltender has signed with the St. Louis Blues.

''The Blues are thrilled to bring a veteran goaltender with a career winning record to our team,'' said club president John Davidson. ''With the addition of Manny, we feel solid with the depth we have in goal.''

Legace was 37-8-0 record with a 2.19 goals-against average last season but was blamed for the club's first-round playoff loss to Edmonton.

That didn't deter the Blues, who also have Jason Bacashihua and Curtis Sanford between the pipes.

Not bad. There were rumours here and there, but now it's official.

He'll probably be handed the staring role, and Sanford will be back-up. How much was he signed for.

And why did it take so long for him to be signed? Teams must have looked too much into his last playoff series, though I still don't think the Wings losing was much his fault really.

It's undisclosed at the moment.

What was the problem with him in Detroit? I really didn't understand the urgency to get rid of him? Was he causing trouble or something?
