Scott Gomez deserves more playing time

Here’s a sentence I never thought I’d write: Scott Gomez deserves more playing time. Brought in along with Scottie Upshall to provide a bit of depth for the Blues at forward, Gomez always seemed to be an outlier who would rarely factor into the roster. A handful of injuries changed that and Gomez has proved […]

Jaden Schwartz out for at least 3 months

The Blues early injuries are starting to reach an absurd level. Paul Stastny is out at least five weeks with a broken foot. Now, Jaden Schwartz is expected to miss at least three months after fracturing his foot during practice. The word “unlucky” will inevitably be thrown around and rightfully so. Schwartz suffered his injury […]

Ty Rattie has another chance to prove himself while Jaden Schwartz is out

Jaden Schwartz suffered a freak injury during practice, slipping and crashing into the post. Schwartz was unable to put any weight on his leg and the Blues wasted no time in calling up Ty Rattie. As the injuries continue to mount across the roster, Rattie is thrust into a position to finally prove himself at […]

Sportsnet praises Blues rookies

The Blues have a few talented rookies on the roster this season and all of them are off to promising starts. Robby Fabbri’s injury appears to be mostly just a minor setback, but prior to going down he was looking pretty comfortable on an important scoring line. Colton Parayko has arguably been the team’s best […]

Paul Stastny has a broken foot, will miss at least 5 weeks

Paul Stastny has a broken right foot and will miss a significant amount of time. The initial timeline has his revaluation scheduled for five weeks from now, meaning the Blues will be without his services for at least a month or two. Stastny injured his foot while blocking a shot against the Vancouver Canucks. It’s unclear […]

The Blues may consider trading Carl Gunnarsson

The Blues have a pretty solid situation on defense. Even with Kevin Shattenkirk recovering from an injury, the Blues have a defensive unit which has evolved with the infusion of some young talent in Colton Parayko and Joel Edmundson. With Parayko and Edmundson proving themselves at the NHL level, the Blues may have the option […]

Video: Alexandre Burrows jumps into the Blues bench

Alexandre Burrows was trying to avoid the puck as his team looked to dump it into the St. Louis zone, but he got a little bit carried away with his jump. Burrows hopped over the boards and landed inside the Blues’ bench. Jay Bouwmeester’s complete look of indifference is amazing. (Via Reddit Hockey)

Parayko

Video: Colton Parayko breaks the glass with a shot

Let the Colton Parayko – Fulton Reed comparisons begin! Parayko launched a bomb at Canucks goaltender Ryan Miller, but missed the goal. The shot crashed into the glass and broke the pane. Though the pane didn’t completely shatter, it had to be replaced for safety concerns.

Blues asked to overcome early injuries

The 2015-16 season is still in its infancy, but the St. Louis Blues are already being challenged to overcome adversity. Robby Fabbri went down with a concussion in just his second career NHL games. Kevin Shattenkirk suffered a lower-body injury and will likely miss a couple games. In a division/conference in which every point is […]

It’s early, but Carl Gunnarsson is the weak link on defense

The season is only two games old for the St. Louis Blues. With that in mind, it’s far too early to make any big assumptions or analysis. However, there is one developing trend which is pretty troubling. Carl Gunnarsson has looked overwhelmed in his first two games and that says a lot considering two rookies […]

Robby Fabbri suffers an upper-body injury

Robby Fabbri was forced out of his second career game after appearing to take an elbow to the head against the Minnesota Wild. Fabbri exited early, leaving after skating about three and a half minutes. The injury was labeled with the generic “upper-body” description. Details are extremely limited. Fabbri will be reevaluated prior to the […]

Fabbri

Video: Robby Fabbri is excited, swears during live interview

Robby Fabbri may have been so excited to score during his NHL debut with the Blues that he had a lapse in judgement during his interview with Fox Sports Midwest. While being interviewed by Panger, Fabbri discussed how he’d likely text friend Connor McDavid and give him a little s*** for besting him in their […]

Tom Stillman: Scottrade Center needs a significant renovation

All of the talk in St. Louis involving stadiums has been focused on the St. Louis Rams and their crazy/insane/ridiculous situation with the Edward Jones Dome and a potential new stadium. Meanwhile, another conversation has been taking place involving a major renovation of the Scottrade Center. Comments from Blues owner Tom Stillman were recently published in the […]

DALLAS, TX - SEPTEMBER 29:  Brian Elliott #1 of the St. Louis Blues in the net against the Dallas Stars during a preseason game at American Airlines Center on September 29, 2015 in Dallas, Texas.  (Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)

Brian Elliott and Jake Allen will split starts during first month

The St. Louis Blues picked Jake Allen as their goaltender during the playoffs last season, leading many to believe that he was the team’s top goaltender. Some solid play from Brian Elliott this preseason should have quieted that speculation, culminating with Elliott being named the starter for the opener against Edmonton. Though Elliott will lead […]

It’s too early to give up on Ty Rattie

A few young skaters managed to crack the opening night roster for the Blues, but Ty Rattie wasn’t one of them. Instead, Rattie is headed back down to the AHL. Not long ago, Rattie was widely regarded as the team’s best prospect, but to date he has struggled to make an impression worthy of more […]
