The search for a new goaltending coach is over. Just a few days after the Blues stated they weren’t in a rush to name a new coach, they announce they have hired Jim Corsi. You’re probably pretty familiar with Corsi’s resume (yes, he created the fancy stat), but if you aren’t, he served as Buffalo’s […]
The St. Louis Blues aren’t in a rush to hire a new goaltending coach. After releasing Corey Hirsch, it was clear the Blues intended to go in a new direction, but it’s still unclear what kind of direction that may be. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Buffalo coach Jim Corsi, Nashville’s Mitch Korn and […]
In the end Ryan Miller was a rental. One incredibly expensive rental. By signing Brian Elliott to a three-year deal, the Blues also announced that they would be allowing Miller to hit free agency. The Blues waved the white flag, ending the rather brief Miller time in St. Louis. The team’s decision on Miller really […]
Brian Elliott will be sticking around St. Louis. The goaltender has signed a three-year deal worth $7.5 million to remain with the St. Louis Blues. Elliott’s signing signals two things: 1) The St. Louis crease will feature Jake Allen and Elliott next season and 2) the Ryan Miller era in St. Louis is over. Elliott […]
At the end of April (April 28th, to be exact) I posted a poll asking fans to offer their opinion on the Ryan Miller contract situation. The options were simple – Should the Blues sign Miller to a new deal or should they let him walk?
The St. Louis goaltending picture for 2014-15 is a cloudy one. Will the Blues retain Ryan Miller? What does the future hold for Brian Elliott? Will the team bring in an entirely new face between the pipes? What about Jake Allen? Today, Doug Armstrong answered one of those questions. Jake Allen will be with the […]
The Ryan Miller debate has been raging on Twitter ever since the Blues were eliminated in Game 6. What should the Blues do with the goaltender? Should they sign him to a new deal or let him walk after a failed playoff campaign? The answer isn’t an easy one, but if you were forced to […]
Post-game interviews after a series exit are always difficult. They’re also pretty telling if a player strays from the usual script. In the case of Ryan Miller, he opted to talk about his summer plans as opposed to giving a comment on his future with the Blues. A comment like this should give Blues fans […]
The loss in Game 3 was a team effort. Ryan Miller allowed the soft goal above, but he made several big saves which could have pushed the score even higher. Meanwhile, the Blues struggled to put pucks on frame despite controlling the play for nearly the whole third period. Letting this one in was bad, but fans shouldn’t be too hasty in pinning this loss on Miller.
The 2013-14 regular season is officially in the books. As the Blues turn their attention on the playoffs, let’s take a quick look back at the season that was. Specifically, let’s see how the three goaltenders for the Blues performed. This was the most criticized and scrutinized area on the roster, so it only makes […]
The Blues were demolished by the Avalanche on Saturday afternoon by a score of 4-0. Things could have been a little bit worse had it not been for Ryan Miller’s incredible save on Nathan MacKinnon. The 18-year-old already notched a goal (a historic one at that) and appeared to have tallied another as he slid […]
Ryan Miller made a ton of huge saves in a 1-0 shootout win over the Philadelphia Flyers. In his first shutout with the Blues, Miller stood tall, repeatedly keeping the Blues in the game with big save after big save. You could fill an entire highlight reel with Miller’s saves from last night, but his […]
It’s no mystery that the St. Louis Blues want to sign Ryan Miller to a long contract. After giving up numerous pieces to secure him and Steve Ott, the Blues made it clear that they didn’t want their relationship with Miller to just be a short-term rental. Will Miller sign a new deal to stay […]
That was a weird one, wasn't it? The Blues dominated long stretches of Game 1, earning countless chances against the Los Angeles defense. If it weren't for Jonathan Quick, the Kings might have dropped Game 1 by a hefty margin. Ironically, the same man that kept the Kings in the game for 60 minutes also […]
