Report: Vladimir Sobotka will make an official decision by May 30th

A report came out the other day that Vladimir Sobotka was probably going to stay in the KHL. The original report indicated that Doug Armstrong spoke with Sobotka’s agent during the World Hockey Championships and Sobotka was likely going to put off an NHL return. A new report has come out suggesting that Sobotka still […]

Blues appoint Martin Brodeur as Assistant GM for 3 years

St. Louis Blues GM Doug Armstrong will have some help when he’s making roster decisions. The club announced that they have signed Martin Brodeur to a three-year deal to be the team’s Assistant General Manager. While his duties haven’t been publicly outlined, it’s safe to assume he’ll weigh in on the team’s handling of their […]

Blues miss out on Mike Babcock, but that’s not a bad thing

The last few days saw the St. Louis Blues unexpectedly thrust into the middle of the battle for Mike Babcock. The Blues never appeared to be a contender or a favorite for Babcock, but the Blues at least made it known they were interested in his services. Babcock ultimately signed with the Toronto Maple Leafs […]

As always, take the word “report” with a grain of salt. With that being said, a recent report suggests the St. Louis Blues may have asked the Detroit Red Wings for permission to speak to Mike Babcock.

A quick comparison of Ken Hitchcock and Mike Babcock

Ken Hitchcock’s future with the St. Louis Blues and in the NHL is a mystery. Meanwhile, Mike Babcock has been linked to numerous teams and is pretty much the biggest free agent available this summer. The two coaches appear to be on opposite sides of the spectrum, but a recent article from the Toronto Sun […]

Report: It sounds like Martin Brodeur will be back with the Blues

When Martin Brodeur joined the Blues last season, it seemed like a short-term gig. That proved to be true of his on-ice contributions to the Blues, but Brodeur ended up sticking around long after Brian Elliott and Jake Allen reclaimed the St. Louis crease. Once the year wrapped up, it looked like Brodeur would head off […]

GIF: Tarasenko scores a nice goal against Slovakia

Here’s another reminder for Blues GM Doug Armstrong that Vladimir Tarasenko deserves all of the monies. During Russia’s game against Slovakia, Tarasenko pulled out a move Blues fans saw quite a few times this season. Looks like the international hockey scene wasn’t prepared for Tarasenko’s trademark move. Through five games, Tarasenko has three goals and […]

Paul Stastny has a lot to prove in his second year with the Blues

You could write a lot of words about Paul Stastny and his disappointing first year with the St. Louis Blues. Stastny wasn’t bad, but he was average. That’s a big problem considering Stastny’s hefty four-year, $28 million contract and it places the forward under a ton of pressure heading into 2015-16. First, a real quick […]

Tarasenko contract negotiations are waiting on the NHL’s new salary cap

The St. Louis Blues have made it clear that Vladimir Tarasenko is their top priority. That’s a pretty obvious statement after watching Tarasenko score a combined 43 goals in the regular season and the playoffs. Previously, the team stated that the Blues won’t handle any other free agents or make any decisions until Tarasenko is signed […]

The ending starts feeling a little sad as Tarasenko rattles off several goals against the […]

Barret Jackman wants to finish his career with the Blues

When the Blues were booted out of the playoffs in Game 6 against the Minnesota Wild, a lot of fans wondered if it was the last time they’d see Barret Jackman on the roster. Jackman has skated with the Blues since he made his NHL debut in 2001-02, but more and more questions are being […]
