Paul Stastny isn't bothered by the fact that he's not wearing an 'A' this season.

Stastny was an alternate captain in Colorado and he served in that role with St. Louis too last season during road games. However, Blues coach Mike Yeo didn't want to have different alternate captains on home compared to the road, so this season they went down to two players wearing the 'A' and Stastny wasn't one of them. He's shrugged off the change though. "Does it matter?" he asked. "Yeah and no. I think within the locker room, I know where I stand with the players and I know the philosophy. You have young guys ready to step up and take over, whether it’s now or grooming them into a role in the future – (Colton Parayko), Schwartzie, Vladdy. To me, I always want to be the same guy, where guys can look up to me. I’m always going to do the same thing, helping out the younger guys, on and off the ice, especially the guys with more responsibility." Meanwhile, Stastny has a solid four goals and 12 points in 16 games this season.
