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 […]

Report: Blues open to moving Backes, Oshie and Berglund

Blues fans hoping the club will make drastic changes this summer will be interested in the latest report from Pierre LeBrun. According to LeBrun’s report seen over on ESPN, the Blues are open to moving David Backes, T.J. Oshie, Patrik Berglund or a different veteran. LeBrun: But if there’s a deal out there that makes […]

Blues are interested in acquiring a first-round pick

The St. Louis Blues are a team without a first-round pick in the upcoming NHL Draft. The club shipped their pick over to the Buffalo Sabres in the Ryan Miller trade. The Sabres then sent the pick over to the Winnipeg Jets, but the fact of the matter is that the Blues are lacking a […]

St. Louis ranked 9th in TV viewership for Game 6

Hockey fans in St. Louis are gluttons for punishment. As the Chicago Blackhawks defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 6, hockey fans in St. Louis watched in huge numbers. Pretty noteworthy that Vegas finished 10th on this list. Blues fans can only hope that one day – hopefully in our lifetime – that St. […]

Barret Jackman talks about moving on from the Blues

Not long after the Blues made it publicly known that they were not re-signing Barret Jackman, the veteran defenseman spoke with Jeremy Rutherford about his future. As you might have imagined, Jackman was extremely respectful and spoke highly of the Blues. Like many Blues fans, Jackman knew the team’s decision was coming. Jackman believes he […]

Blues will not re-sign Barret Jackman

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 Stanley Cup – Where Will The Blues Stack Up For 2015-16?

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 […]

Report: Doug Armstrong expected to be active this summer

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 […]

Report: Blues are interested in goalie Craig Anderson

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 […]

Blues didn’t allow another team to talk to Ken Hitchcock

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 […]

Here’s the 2015-16 preseason schedule for the Blues

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 […]

Backes says the Blues need to make changes or it’s “insanity”

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 […]
