The Blues are bringing back all-inclusive club seats

Back in September, the Blues announced that they were changing their alcohol policy for the Club Seats at Scottrade Center. Previously, a ticket for those seats meant unlimited food and drinks delivered to your seat from the servers posted around the section.

Blues could see the Backes contract situation play out in several ways

The David Backes contract situation with the Blues remains unresolved. The team reportedly offered Backes a contract not too long ago worth about $5.5 million a year for three years, but Backes and his agent declined. Since then, the two sides have been in contact but another offer hasn’t been extended. For the Blues, there […]


And now Berglund looks like Jaskin

Remember when Patrik Berglund looked a lot like Alexander Steen on a recent Blues broadcast? This time he’s got a whole new identity, courtesy of Dmitrij Jaskin. Who else wishes this goof became a regular thing done before each Blues game?

Jaden Schwartz is skating with the Blues again

As if the Blues beating the Red Wings on Wednesday night wasn’t good enough, the team also welcomed a familiar face back to practice – Jaden Schwartz. Schwartz fractured his ankle back on October 23rd and required surgery to repair the injury. The freak incident, which occurred when he lost his balance and collided into […]


Video: A reminder that Tarasenko is good at this hockey thing

Vladimir Tarasenko was in a miniature scoring slump heading into tonight’s game against the Penguins. The “slump” was that he had not scored in five games which was the longest goalless stretch for him so far in 2015-16. Against the Penguins, Tarasenko reminded a national audience of the talent he possesses. That’s an outstanding goal. […]

Injury updates on Bouwmeester and Gunnarsson

The good news is that the Blues are starting to regain their health on defense. The bad news is that it may still be a game or two until Jay Bouwmeester (concussion) and Carl Gunnarsson (upper-body) are back to full health. Both players skated on Sunday, but Gunnarsson has already been ruled out for Monday’s game […]


Blues acquire Richard Nedomlel from the Red Wings

The Blues are at the center of a ton of different trade rumors and they actually made a deal on Friday.

Thoughts on the Rams leaving St. Louis from a Blues fan

Why discuss the St. Louis Rams and their move to LA on a blog about the St. Louis Blues? Good question. Though this is a blog about hockey and the Blues, it’s also a place where those from St. Louis gather. Visitors to this site all have one thing in common – love for the […]


Video: Ryan Reaves mocks Bobby Farnham, obliterates Jordin Tootoo

Ryan Reaves is one tough customer. New Jersey’s Bobby Farnham is … well, not so much. Farnham may think he can hang with the big boys of the NHL, but Reaves isn’t buying what Farnham is selling. Another angle: Farnham had a chip on his shoulder throughout the rest of the game and later delivered […]


Video: Ryan Reaves draws on Ty Rattie’s face during an interview

Ryan Reaves loves his pranks. When he’s not uploading videos of him scaring various Blues players, he’s drawing on Ty Rattie’s face during an interview. Rattie was called up as a response to the team’s rash of injuries, but he had no idea that a Sharpie was waiting for him. Another look: Gotta love Reaves.

Jake Allen may miss a couple weeks

News and details surrounding Jake Allen’s injury have been difficult to uncover. The team officially labeled Allen’s injury as “undisclosed” which is even more vague than the traditionally broad lower-body or upper-body labels. It looked like Allen injured his leg or knee on the play, which is a notion that Jeremy Rutherford has stated as […]
