Blues still lacking killer instinct against quality opponents

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. The St. Louis Blues dominated a game for long stretches but failed to put the puck in the net and bury their opponent. Usually the story plays out with the Blues then giving up a goal and falling late in the game. On Thursday night against the LA […]

Carl Gunnarsson

Carl Gunnarsson cleared to play

Blues fans anticipating Carl Gunnarsson’s debut with his new team won’t have to wait much longer. The defenseman has been slowly rehabbing his hip following a surgical procedure at the end of last season and has finally been cleared to play. Gunnarsson may be eased into the lineup, but its safe to say his debut will […]


Hitchcock on Elliott & Allen: “These guys have no ego”

Ken Hitchcock was asked about the team’s goaltending following their 3-2 loss to the New York Rangers on Thursday night. Aside from pushing the blame off of Brian Elliott (rightfully so), Hitchcock went on to comment on the tandem of Elliott and Jake Allen and had some big complements for the two netminders. As seen on […]


Blues put Peter Mueller on waivers to terminate his contract

UPDATE: It looks like Mueller didn’t want to report to the AHL. This would explain the move to terminate his contract. It seemed a bit puzzling the Blues would cut him entirely given his potential upside, but if he doesn’t want to report then there’s no sense in trying to force him. EARLIER STORY: When […]


Doug Armstrong: “It’s basically up to the players to get the job done”

Is the pressure on coach Ken Hitchcock this season? That’s the topic of a recent STLToday article which provided some interesting quotes from both the coach and from general manager Doug Armstrong.

The topic of advanced statistics has dominated the hockey scene this summer.

Still, despite all of the support, other coaches and NHL figures have bashed advanced stats. So, where […]


Blues release Paul Bissonnette from tryout

Paul Bissonnette has been released from his tryout with the Blues. During his brief time with St. Louis, Biz didn’t make a strong enough of an impression to land a permanent spot with the team. He’s also dealing with a pulled groin, but his ailment didn’t factor in the decision. It was always pretty surprising […]

Carl Gunnarsson

Carl Gunnarsson won’t be ready for season opener

Carl Gunnarsson is still recovering from hip surgery he had at the end of last season and as a result won’t be ready to go for the season opener. It’s disappointing Gunnarsson is still recovering from a procedure he had several months ago, but it’s nice to see the Blues feel they have other options […]


Blues debate changing their goal song

If you haven’t been on Twitter since Thursday evening, you may be unaware of the anger flooding in the direction of the Blues.

Nate Prosser

Wild claim Nate Prosser from the Blues

The St. Louis Blues tried to send Nate Prosser through waivers, but the Minnesota Wild stepped in and claimed the defenseman. The move came as a big surprise not because of the fact Prosser was claimed, but because of who claimed him. Prosser spent five years with Minnesota before leaving over the summer to sign a contract […]
