Report: Blues may have talked to Oilers about a trade

There are a ton of trade rumors out there and just about every team is talking to every other team about something or some player. The Blues fall into that category and while it’s safe to assume there have been at least casual trade conversations with numerous teams, a recent report connects the Blues directly […]


Ken Hitchcock may not understand how puck possession works

After yet another disappointing loss, Blues coach Ken Hitchcock had a press conference about what went wrong and what the team needs to do to fix things. The usual quotes were presented, but Hitchcock had one startling comment which deserves some discussion. While talking about possession and how the Blues failed to retain the puck, Hitchcock seemed […]


Video: Slick no-look pass from Lehtera leads to a goal

The Blues found their offense against the Arizona Coyotes and received big contributions from Kevin Shattenkirk, Vladimir Tarasenko, Magnus Paajarvi, Alexander Steen and Jori Lehtera. Lehtera in particular may have had the best play of the night as he found Shattenkirk for the team’s third goal with a brilliant no-look pass. Lehtera looked up and […]


Blue send down Edmundson, recall Lindbohm

At the end of November, Joel Edmundson discussed his struggles and the fact he was a healthy scratch. The team hoped that he’d snap out of his slump of poor play and return to the form which won a roster spot out of training camp. Unfortunately, that hasn’t happened and the Blues have sent him […]

The Blues’ slump looks and sounds all too familiar

The St. Louis Blues looked awful at home against the lowly Toronto Maple Leafs. They also looked pretty bad on the road against the New York Islanders and at home against the Florida Panthers. The club has dropped three straight. While that type of slump is expected over the course of an 82-game season, it’s […]


Video: How did Colton Parayko survive this play?

Blues fans have joked that Colton Parayko isn’t human, but he gave some evidence supporting that argument against the Islanders. Parayko’s leg bends at an angle it shouldn’t have during the play below and yet he returned to the game moments later.


Are the Blues working on a new alternate jersey?

The St. Louis Blues have some outstanding jerseys. Prior to unveiling their new home and away sweaters, the consensus around the league was that the team had one of the best alternates of any NHL team. That sentiment is still mostly true, but the more serious Blues fans quickly flocked to the new home/road sweaters. With […]

Are the Blues tinkering with their goal song again?

The St. Louis Blues have one of the best goal songs in the NHL. The classic rendition of “When the Saints Go Marching In” performed on an organ is about as hockey as it gets. That’s what makes the Blues recent history of tinkering with their goal song so troubling. Back in 2014, there were […]

Brian Elliott calls Jake Allen the future of the franchise

Brian Elliott is once again in a tough position with the St. Louis Blues. Over the last several years, Elliott has repeatedly been pushed to the bench as the organization turns to different options in net. First was Jaroslav Halak. Next was Ryan Miller. Now it’s Jake Allen. Despite the fact Elliott is struggling to find […]

Joel Edmundson talks about his recent struggles

Joel Edmundson was praised for his initial strong debut in the NHL. Along with Colton Parayko, both defensemen won jobs out of training camp and had impressive debuts, but Edmundson has cooled considerably compared to how he was playing in October. As a result, the rookie has been a healthy scratch for the Blues and […]


Video: Pang accidentally says Tarasenko, Stastny and Steen had sex

Broadcasting is an extremely difficult job. Darren Pang is one of the best in the business and not even he can avoid the unfortunate slip of the tongue. Pang was trying to say “success” but he began to say “sex” instead, making all of us think that Stastny, Steen and Tarasenko have a closer relationship […]

Doug Armstrong is scouting Blue Jackets games

It’s already that time of the year where it’s fun to follow where Doug Armstrong pops up in arenas around the NHL. It’s perfectly common for a team to have a scout in attendance for a different team’s game, but when a GM makes an appearance, that usually means there’s something a bit more serious […]

Ryan Reaves needs to snap out of this slump

Last season, Ryan Reaves proved to be the perfect combination of muscle and skill. Always willing to drop his gloves, Reaves demonstrated that he could produce offensively with six goals and six assists in 81 games. His 12 points were a career high and his shifts often featured some big checks while disrupting the opposition […]
