Here’s a look at Jake Allen’s new goalie mask

Jake Allen is starting a new chapter for the Blues by taking over the crease heading into 2016-17. That new chapter calls for a new goalie mask and if Allen’s new lid is any indication, big things are in store for the new season. It may not grab as much attention as Brian Elliott’s old […]

Blues are building a new practice facility in Creve Coeur Park

The decline of the St. Louis Outlet Mall (formerly known as the Mills) has led many Blues fans to question how much longer the team will practice in the arena located inside the aging mall. During their 2017 Winter Classic press conference, the Blues announced they are building a new practice facility in Creve Coeur […]

Here’s the logo the Blues will use for the 2017 Winter Classic

The St. Louis Blues are throwing it back for the 2017 Winter Classic set to be played at Busch Stadium on January 2nd, 2017 against the Chicago Blackhawks. The team unveiled the official logo they’ll use for the Classic and it’s a great tribute to the past. If you’re not familiar with the logo above, […]

Steen hopes to have a contract extension before the season starts

Alexander Steen is still recovering from shoulder surgery he required after skating through the playoffs with the injury, but he’s still reportedly intent on working out a new contract extension prior to the 2016-17 season. The Blues are also interested in figuring out an extension and hope to keep Steen in the mix beyond the […]

Why hasn’t the Vladimir Sobotka situation been finalized?

There have been countless reports suggesting Vladimir Sobotka will return to the Blues for the 2016-17 season. Despite all of the reports and the comments from the team’s front office, the calendar is pushing towards the end of July and yet there hasn’t been an official confirmation regarding Sobotka’s status. What’s the hold up? Here’s where […]

The new deal for Jaden Schwartz is right on the money

Jaden Schwartz and the Blues finally agreed on a new contract and it’s one which should be viewed as a win for both sides. It looked like an arbitrator would be needed to decide on a new contract for Schwartz after the two sides failed to reach a deal despite being the “top priority”, but […]

Blues a possible but unlikely destination for Jimmy Vesey

Talented young skater Jimmy Vesey is planning on hitting the open market when he becomes an unrestricted free agent in August. Vesey’s rights were traded from the Predators to the Sabres, but Vesey has stated on multiple occasions he wants to explore free agency. Since then, dozens of teams have expressed an interest and one […]

Jaden Schwartz files for salary arbitration

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has reported that restricted free agent Jaden Schwartz has filed for salary arbitration. Despite the fact the Blues have stated on numerous occasions that Schwartz would be their top priority over the summer, the 24-year-old forward still doesn’t have a new contract in place for 2016-17. An arbitration hearing will now […]

Who will be the next captain of the Blues?

David Backes departing for the Boston Bruins not only leaves a hole at forward, but it also leaves a vacancy at captain. Backes was the player fans rallied for to become the next captain of the team even before Eric Brewer was moved out of the role, but now the change isn’t quite as obvious. […]

The Blues’ approach to free agency contradicts a “win now” mentality

The St. Louis Blues were two wins away from making it to the Stanley Cup Final. Skip ahead roughly two months later and the Blues barely resemble the squad which eliminated the Chicago Blackhawks and the Dallas Stars while making it deep into the playoffs. Brian Elliott? Traded. David Backes? Left for Boston. Troy Brouwer? […]

The Kevin Shattenkirk relationship doesn’t look like it’s going to end well

The Blues and Kevin Shattenkirk were expected to go their separate ways at the 2016 NHL Draft. The draft came and went and Shattenkirk remained on the roster which was surprising to both the defenseman and his agent. As multiple teams around the league shake things up with some huge moves, the Shattenkirk relationship continues […]

Poll: Did the Blues get a big enough return for Brian Elliott?

The Brian Elliott trade was both unexpected and controversial. Elliott led the Blues to multiple playoff series wins (something no Blues goalie has done in years), but the team decided to move him to the Calgary Flames in an effort to save some cap room and to avoid a future decision in which they’d lose […]

Ready or not, it’s Jake Allen’s time in goal

The Blues have once again decided that Brian Elliott is not the answer in net. Now that Elliott calls a new team home, the spotlight is completely on Jake Allen whether he’s ready or not to take on the role. Shortly after the trade, Allen commented on the situation and his comments were pretty much what […]
