You can add yet another name to the St. Louis Blues Rumor Mill.
The St. Louis Blues will return a large portion of their roster from 2013-14 in 2014-15. With the goaltending decision made, the Blues have a couple of very important areas to address this summer. One is help offensively and the other involves beefing up the defense. Here’s what TSN says the Blues need to do […]
A St. Louis Blues uniform change has been rumored for the past several years. The belief has been that with a new owner would come a new uniform, removing the old regime’s stamp on the team. With Tom Stillman firmly cemented as the team’s owner, is a jersey change in store? Possibly. Here’s what Jeremy […]
St. Louis Blues fans are a dedicated bunch. You probably could have assumed as much considering the Scottrade Center continues to draw fairly large crowds despite the fact the organization has yet to win a Cup. So, is there a way to measure just how loyal Blues fans are compared to fans of other teams? […]
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 […]
The St. Louis Blues have several areas to address this summer. The first ones which come to mind are goaltending, the power play and finding some offense help.

News emerged the other day that the odds of Jason Spezza being traded are pretty good. Spezza’s end of the year comments and the fact he’s in the final year of his current contract in 2014-15 mixed with Ottawa’s shifting identity make him an ideal trade candidate. Would the St. Louis Blues be interested? According […]
The Blues have given Ken Hitchcock a new deal for the 2014-15 season. They’ve also decided to bring back assistant coach Ray Bennett and associate coach Brad Shaw. Though these three will be returning, the collapse in the playoffs came at a cost as both Corey Hirsch and Gary Agnew will not be joining the […]
The St. Louis Blues have a lot of questions to answer this summer. While fans have been focused on potential targets for the team to focus on around the NHL, the Blues will first have to figure out how to handle expiring contracts on their roster. Below is a list of the restricted and unrestricted […]
Ryan Reaves dropped the mitts 10 times over the course of 63 games in 2013-14. If it seems like you didn’t see Reaves fight quite as often as you did in previous years, you’re right. He fought seven times in 43 games in 2012-13 and 13 times in 60 games in 2011-12. Though he focused […]
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 […]
Same story, different year. There’s really not much which needs to be said, but let’s hit on a couple of points before closing the book on 2013-14 and trying to forget about yet another disappointing ending. Ryan Miller Here’s my issue with the whole Ryan Miller trade: It’s not the trade the Blues needed to […]
Here’s an outstanding and surreal graphic comparing the Blues in 2013 vs. the Blues in 2014. Does the Blues’ 3-2 hole against the Blackhawks feel familiar? It should. It’s basically the exact same thing we saw against the Kings.
