T.J. Oshie comments on his trade to the Capitals

The Blues promised changes would be made after another disappointing playoff exit and they delivered with a surprising trade of T.J. Oshie to the Washington Capitals. Fan opinion on the deal has been split (almost exactly 50-50 based on this poll), but the dust is settling and all of the players involved in the trade […]

Kyle Brodziak signs one-year deal with Blues

The T.J. Oshie trade will continue to receive all of the attention, but the Blues went out and made a solid signing Thursday night by inking Kyle Brodziak to a one-year deal. Brodziak most recently skated with the Minnesota Wild and had 20 points across 73 regular season games. The Blues were seeking a bit of […]

Poll: Do you like the T.J. Oshie trade?

The T.J. Oshie trade is still settling in, but it already has been an extremely divisive and polarizing topic. Some fans are happy the core has been altered while others are sad Oshie is gone or are unhappy with the return. I offered my opinion, but it’s time to poll the fans who follow this […]

Reaction: Blues trade T.J. Oshie to the Capitals

Fans begging for the Blues to change their core got their wish. T.J. Oshie has been traded to the Capitals in exchange for forward Troy Brouwer, goaltender Pheonix Copley and a 2016 third-round pick. Consider this not only a major move which alters the St. Louis roster, but also one which sends a big wakeup call to those […]

Zbynek Michalek heads back to the Coyotes

The Blues weren’t expected to bring back Zbynek Michalek and that became official as the defenseman headed back to the Arizona Coyotes with a two-year, $6.4 million contract. The Blues originally acquired Michalek from the Coyotes prior to the 2014-15 trade deadline in exchange for Maxim Letunov and a conditional third-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft. […]

Blues give Jori Lehtera a three-year contract extension

While Blues fans wait for Vladimir Tarasenko to receive a new contract, the team rewarded Jori Lehtera with a three-year, $14.1 million extension. Lehtera’s current deal wasn’t going to expire until after the 2015-16 campaign, which means he’s now in the mix through 2018-19.

Barret Jackman signs with the Nashville Predators

It didn’t take long for Barret Jackman to find a new team. After the Blues made it publicly known that they wouldn’t be signing the defenseman, numerous teams expressed their interest including a few from the Central Division. The Central is exactly where Jackman has landed as he has signed a deal with the Nashville […]

Blues acquire Konrad Abeltshauser in a trade with San Jose

The Blues have traded a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft to the San Jose Sharks in exchange for German defenseman Konrad Abeltshauser. The trade barely registers on the noteworthy meter and likely won’t factor in the team’s roster for 2015-16. Abeltshauser skated in 50 AHL games in 2014-15 with the Worcester Sharks. Over […]

Blues are mostly quiet during the draft, earn low marks

The St. Louis Blues were rarely heard from during the 2015 NHL Draft. The team made a total of six selections over the weekend, but fans who were expecting the club to make a major trade or acquire a first-round pick were left disappointed. How did the hockey media grade the Blues’ effort during the […]


Video: J.J. Watt scores a goal on Brian Elliott

Brian Elliott faced an unfamiliar opponent during a recent charity event – J.J. Watt of the Houston Texans. Watt skated in to take a shootout attempt and unloaded a blistering slapper which beat Elliott. Of course, Elliott was diving out of the way of the blast, but this was a rare occasion where two players […]

Rumor suggested Blues were shopping Shattenkirk in the first round

The St. Louis Blues were silent during the first round of the 2015 NHL Draft. The team didn’t have a pick and didn’t make any noise on the trade front. However, there was one extremely weird, random rumor which surfaced from an Edmonton Oilers reporter. Matheson appeared to be throwing out names without any inside information, […]

Jake Allen has now been named to the All-Rookie team twice

Here’s a fun piece of NHL trivia. Jake Allen was named to the league’s All-Rookie team for his work in 2014-15, but remarkably this wasn’t the first time he has received the honor. Allen was also named to the All-Rookie team back in 2012-13. Allen’s first All-Rookie team selection in 2012-13 was due to his […]

Armstrong tells Hitchcock to use Stastny differently

Doug Armstrong, like many Blues fans, isn’t happy with how Ken Hitchcock used Paul Stastny last season. After returning from injury, Stastny mostly saw time on the third line and frequently saw his linemates juggled. Though the Blues made Stastny the highest-paid forward on the team, Hitchcock continued to play him in a limited role. Armstrong has […]
