The 2015-16 season is quickly approaching and that means it’s time for the various media outlets to analyze the Blues and predict what will happen in the year ahead. NHL.com is running a video series for all 30 teams and here’s a look at what they said about the Blues.
Brian Elliott has had some pretty awesome goalie masks over the last several years. Elliott has consistently featured Casey Jones from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but last year he took his mask in a new direction with a design which featured a tribute to Elliott’s nickname – Moose. This year, Elliott’s combining those two themes […]
Alex Pietrangelo contributed 46 points in 81 games for the Blues last season. Based on that statistic alone, you might be under the impression Pietrangelo was deserving of his $5.5 million he earned in 2014-15. The problem is that when you dig a bit deeper, or when you watch enough Blues games, you start to notice […]
While the Blues mostly spent their day announcing their upcoming promo schedule for the new season, they also announced that Jori Lehtera had ankle surgery on his right ankle back on August 4th. Lehtera’s injury reportedly occurred at the end of last season and the team waited until the swelling went down before making a […]
The T.J. Oshie trade which brought Troy Brouwer from Washington to St. Louis was met with some pretty divided reactions. Some liked that the Blues were tinkering with their core players, while others weren’t pleased with the return.
Chris Porter’s run with the St. Louis Blues has ended. The Philadelphia Flyers announced they have signed Porter to a one-year, two-way contract believed to be worth $700,000 at the NHL level and $100,000 at the AHL level. Porter has spent his entire professional career skating within the St. Louis organization. He joined the Peoria […]
It’s common knowledge that T.J. Oshie had captured the hearts of quite a few young fans in St. Louis, but it turns out Troy Brouwer has some adorable young followers as well. Brouwer recently Tweeted out the note he received from a young fan who was sad to see him leave Washington, but was eager […]
EA has tried to make the crowds and atmospheres more engaging in NHL 16. They’ve done this by using the actual goal songs and team salutes each team uses as well as including each team’s mascot into the game. Instead of seeing large blobs of “fans” going through repeated motions, NHL 16 will aim to use unique, […]
Tom Stillman recently spoke with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and he answered several questions regarding the team’s financial stability, the trade of T.J. Oshie and what he expects from the Blues in 2015-16. Perhaps the most interesting comments were about season ticket holders and what he believes is fueling their growth. Via the Post-Dispatch: When […]
Chris Pronger was a member of a stacked group of 2015 Hockey Hall of Fame inductees and now his banner can be found at the Hall. Pronger still technically hasn’t retired (in fact, his contract was recently traded to the Arizona Coyotes), but the Hall of Fame elected to waive the eligibility rules for Pronger. Here’s […]
Ever since the NHL revealed they’d be adopting 3-on-3 overtime beginning in 2015-16, Blues fans have been quick to predict which trio the club should use for the new format. There are some obvious choices – Vladimir Tarasenko for starters – but below is an educated guess at what the Blues might do in various […]
The newest members of the St. Louis Blues finally have official numbers. Troy Brouwer will wear #36 and Kyle Brodziak will wear #28. Let’s hope Brouwer finds more success than Matt D’Agostini had with #36 and Brodziak maintains a better bill of health than fellow #28 Carlo Colaiacovo.
Will the Blues have a more difficult travel schedule in 2015-16 compared to 2014-15? In terms of pure mileage, yes, but the difference between 2015-16 is fairly negligible. The Blues will travel a total of 40,649 miles during their road schedule, an increase over their 38,965-mile schedule last season. This information, compiled by On the […]
Vladimir Tarasenko is an elite talent and the Blues recognized that fact with an eight-year, $60 million contract. Tarasenko has already proven to be one of the best European players in St. Louis Blues history and he’s primed to be the face of the franchise for the next eight seasons. What does he think of […]
The St. Louis Blues and Magnus Paajarvi have avoided arbitration. The two sides agreed to a one-year, one-way deal worth a reported $700,000.
