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 […]

Video: Watch all 43 of Vladimir Tarasenko’s goals from this season

Have 33 minutes to kill? If so, you can sit back and watch a recap of Vladimir Tarasenko’s season. A YouTube user compiled all 37 of Tarasenko’s regular season goals and his six playoff goals into one incredibly entertaining video. 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 […]

The Blues may give Magnus Paajarvi another look

The Magnus Paajarvi experiment appeared to be one the Blues were ready to walk away from after passing the forward through waivers and down to the AHL during the course of the 2014-15 season. Paajarvi was extremely ineffective during his time in the NHL this year (one assist in 10 games) and his demotion to […]

Barret Jackman believes he has 4 or 5 years left

Heading into the playoffs, some fans questioned whether it’d be the last time we saw Barret Jackman in a St. Louis Blues uniform. Retirement was even a topic which came up, but that fell directly in the “speculation” category. As an unrestricted free agent, Jackman’s career is at a crossroads. Following the Blues’ early exit, Jackman […]

Doug Armstrong envisions an Elliott / Allen goalie tandem next season

After the Blues snubbed Brian Elliott in favor of Jake Allen during their first round series against the Minnesota Wild, it seemed pretty unlikely that both goaltenders would be in the mix in 2015-16. GM Doug Armstrong sees things a little differently and has stated he envisions a tandem of Elliott and Allen next year. […]

Poll: Should the Blues move on from Ken Hitchcock?

The St. Louis Blues once again burned out of the playoffs in the first round. There’s a ton of blame to hand out, but inevitably one name always surfaces when fans start talking about change: Ken Hitchcock. The benefit of the doubt has been given to Hitchcock over the last few years, but it sounds […]

Kevin Shattenkirk expects the Blues to make changes

After yet another early playoff exit, changes are coming for the Blues. At least, that’s the feeling among Blues fans who are tired of the same result. Is that same feeling seen in the dressing room? Kevin Shattenkirk agrees that change is coming. That’s assuming that the Blues elect to keep Doug Armstrong at his post. […]

Blues again crash out of the playoffs in the first round

Same script, different year. For the third time in as many seasons, the Blues have crashed out of the playoffs in the first round by a score of four games to two. There’s a lot of things which could and should be said after another quick exit and all of those things will be written […]

The Blues need more from T.J. Oshie, David Backes and Paul Stastny

It takes a team effort to lose three games in a playoff series and a team effort to right the ship and prevent elimination. With that being said, the Blues need to get more out of David Backes, T.J. Oshie and Paul Stastny if they hope to prolong their stay in the 2014-15 playoffs. This trio […]

The Blues defeated the Wild 6-1. (Photo by Hannah Foslien/Getty Images)

Will the script repeat itself in Game 6?

The Blues have a pretty rotten recent history in Game 5s. Looking back over the last couple seasons, the script has gone Game 5 loss followed by Game 6 elimination. Will the story repeat itself this season against the Wild? Two years ago, the Blues entered Game 5 at home with the series tied at […]

A Blues fan tossed a jersey on the ice during Game 5

The Blues’ Game 5 loss at home was infuriating and extremely disappointing. Apparently one fan decided to take a play out of the Edmonton and Toronto playbook and decided to toss a jersey on the ice to show their frustration. No photos or video of the incident have surfaced, but several fans have confirmed the […]
