The Barret Jackman era in St. Louis has come to an end. The team has told Jackman that they will not be offering him a new deal and he’ll be free to explore free agency on July 1st.
The St Louis Blues are one of the biggest names in the Western Conference. Founded in 1967, this professional ice hockey team has since won one President’s Trophy and nine Division Championships. The Blues’ home rink is at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri where fans flock to their games to show support. Because showing their […]
Blues fans are hoping the team makes changes to the team’s core this summer and it looks like at least one NHL analyst believes they’ll get their wish. Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman discussed the Blues and what changes they might make near the draft and into July, and he believes changes are coming. Here’s Friedman’s comments, as […]
Here’s a rumor which makes absolutely no sense. The Blues have reportedly called the Ottawa Senators about goaltender Craig Anderson. The Sens have a wealth of goalies in Anderson, Andrew Hammond, Robin Lehner and Matt O’Connor waiting in the wings, so a trade involving a goalie makes a lot of sense. For the Blues … this […]
The Blues’ contract negotiations with Ken Hitchcock were anything but orthodox. The Blues briefly pursued Mike Babcock before ultimately falling back on Hitchcock and giving him a new contract. Though it may sound like Hitchcock was the backup plan, the Blues still had to fend off other teams interested in talking to the coach. According […]
The St. Louis Blues have released their preseason schedule for the 2015-16 season. The timing is kind of bizarre considering the Stanley Cup hasn’t even been awarded yet for the 2014-15 season, but here we are. It looks like the Blues are trying to get a jump on marketing next season after a disappointing playoff […]
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Insanity, meet the St. Louis Blues. It’s really no mystery that Blues fans have to be insane to continually support a team that crashes out early in the playoffs year after year, but one would hope those in charge of making roster […]
Near the beginning of May, I wrote a post discussing Paul Stastny and the fact he has a lot to prove in his second year with the Blues. Though Stastny wasn’t horrible in 2014-15, he didn’t live up to enormous expectations and an equally large paycheck. This sentiment was widely felt by Blues fans and […]
Blues fans have been lamenting the fact the team traded away goaltender Ben Bishop in 2012 and now he’s preparing to take on the Chicago Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup Final. Bishop may join the annoyingly-long list of former Blues to win a Cup, but it’s still important to avoid looking at the Bishop situation […]
The St. Louis Blues of 2014-15 were a cautious, calculated group which was evidenced by their approach against the Minnesota Wild. This strategy failed and now the Blues are trying to figure out what they need to do to improve in 2015-16. After listening to both Ken Hitchcock and Doug Armstrong, the new plan can […]
In a polarizing announcement, the St. Louis Blues are bringing back head coach Ken Hitchcock for one more season. Hitchcock’s status has been unknown ever since the Blues bowed out in the first round against the Minnesota Wild. The team was linked to Mike Babcock, but ultimately the Blues have decided to give Hitchcock one […]
According to a recent report from Sportsnet, Ken Hitchcock isn’t going anywhere. The St. Louis Blues were expected to make big changes after crashing out of the playoffs in the first round, but all signs are pointing to the head coach remaining in place. Via Sportsnet: The St. Louis Blues have yet to announce an […]
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 […]
St. Louis Blues GM Doug Armstrong met with Vladimir Sobotka’s agent during the Hockey World Championship tournament and it looks like Sobotka is planning on staying in the KHL.
As a professional athlete that hasn’t played since 1999, it’s bizarre to see Wayne Gretzky trending on Facebook and Twitter; however, it hasn’t just been this week that his name has surfaced in the news. Over the last two or three weeks, Wayne Gretzky, “The Great One,” has been in the news numerous times, and […]
