The Blues’ Olympic Hopefuls

With the 22nd Winter Olympic Winter Games right around the corner, the final countdown is on before countries choose their hockey team for the Games which kick-off on Sunday, February 23 in Sochi. The Blues should be well represented not only in Team USA but other countries vying for gold at the Games. One possible […]

Does Vegas still favor the Blues?

You might remember that I've discussed the St. Louis Blues' odds to win the Stanley Cup a couple times in the past. In those articles I detailed that the Blues held 12/1 odds to hoist the Cup prior to the 2013-14 season and then 10/1 odds to win it all back in September.  How have […]

Video: Louie plays Duck Hunt on the Scottrade Center scoreboard

Louie insisted on playing video games on the Scottrade Center scoreboard before the Blues and Ducks dropped the puck on Saturday night. He played an old classic, Duck Hunt (how appropriate), complete with an oversized Nintendo system and blaster. When things didn't go Louie's way, he was forced to bring out a larger blaster.  http://youtube.com/watch?v=K1yKc9Gz6Vs?rel=0 […]

Steen won’t negotiate an extension during the season

Alexander Steen is enjoying one of the best seasons of his NHL career. He's currently on pace to set new personal records for goals and points and has been the team's best offensive weapon so far in 2013-14. Steen's success comes in the final year of his current four-year, $13.45 million contract.  The Blues have […]

Patrik Berglund masters the no-timer

Patrik Berglund tried a one-timer. At the same moment he lost his balance and fell on his face. Incredibly, he still managed to complete his shooting motion even as he tumbled to the ice.  Meet the no-timer. A hilarious whiff.  Big thanks to

An awesome Blues “ugly holiday sweater” t-shirt

This is awesome. The folks over at Switch, an ad agency here in St. Louis, created an incredible "ugly holiday sweater" t-shirt with a St. Louis Blues theme. As if the shirt wasn't cool enough as is, the proceeds are going to charity. When you buy a shirt you're also helping out the Animal Protection […]

PatrikBerglundContractDebate

Is Patrik Berglund worthy of a new contract?

The title of this article is a loaded question. Berglund and the Blues are just 25 games into their 2013-14 schedule and to use a tired expression, there's a lot of hockey left to play. Still, it's never too early to assess, analyze and predict. In Berglund's case, the forward was given a "prove yourself" […]

Ken Hitchcock tells Patrick Roy to shut up

Patrick Roy wasn't too happy after the Blues came into the Pepsi Center and made his Avalanche look silly. Following a 4-1 win by the Blues, Roy spoke about the officiating and about how Hitchcock described Roy's tantrum to start the season as something which belonged in junior hockey. From the Denver Post, Roy said:  […]

SteenGoals

Steen scores his 20th goal in his 24th game

Alexander Steen scored his 20th goal of the season as the Blues bested the Colorado Avalanche by a score of 4-1. Steen's 20th came in just his 24th game and brought him level with Alex Ovechkin for most goals scored in the NHL.  Here's video of Steen's goal. The puck movement is incredible.  http://youtube.com/watch?v=ww8wRPF0F8Q?rel=0 While […]

Update: Reaves needs surgery, out at least 6 weeks

UPDATE: Reaves needed surgery on his hand and will miss at least six weeks. Pretty disappointing news considering his original diagnosis. It looks like Magnus Paajarvi and Adam Cracknell will have a lengthy opportunity to prove themselves while Reaves is out.   ***** Ryan Reaves will miss the next four weeks after breaking his hand […]

Analyzing the Ryan Miller to St. Louis trade rumors

The Ryan Miller to St. Louis trade rumors have persisted for the better part of two years. As the Buffalo Sabres work through their rebuild, all signs have pointed to the team trading away their goaltender. Though other teams have been linked, the rumors almost always seem to come back to the St. Louis Blues.  […]

Will this be Roman Polak’s best offensive season?

Very few hockey players knock on Roman Polak's door. Over the last several years, offense hasn't come knocking either. Between his first season back in 2006-07 and 2012-13, Polak managed just nine goals and 57 assists (66 points) over the course of 352 games. A goal from Polak was a rare event worth celebrating with […]

Video: T.J. Oshie’s reverse hit on Jamie McGinn

I could have posted maybe 15 videos from the Blues' beating of the Colorado Avalanche. Three fights, seven goals and a series of big hits, strange plays and awesome hockey. A couple days removed from the game I find I'm still marveling over T.J. Oshie's reverse hit on Jamie McGinn.  While this hit may be lost […]

Examining St. Louis Blues attendance after 10 home games

The St. Louis Blues have completed roughly 25% of their home schedule. With 10 home games in the books, the Blues have posted an average attendance of 16,644 fans a game. The early figures were low because of the St. Louis Cardinals and their World Series run, but have things improved? How does attendance stack […]
