The St. Louis Blues have been struggling to find their offensive balance. While the STL line continues to roll and score on a nightly basis, the rest of the key players have been mostly silent. I already touched on the fact Paul Stastny has been off to a slow start, but other skaters (T.J. Oshie, […]
NBC recently released an ad promoting their Wednesday Night Rivalry games and a couple of Blues players are featured. Set to the tune of “Lovin’ You” by Minnie Riperton, we’re treated to a grinning Steve Ott and Carlo Colaiacovo getting punched in the face in slow-mo.
Say what you will about Steve Ott the Hockey Player. Steve Ott the Father, on the other hand, is a pretty cool guy. What did Ott do when his daughter decided to wear a Batgirl cape around Six Flags? He put on a Batman cape, of course.
Vladimir Sobotka abandoning the NHL in favor of the KHL was a difficult pill to swallow. For the Blues, they lost a solid hockey player who unfortunately overvalued the skills he brought to the ice.

Steve Ott’s big hit on Duncan Keith in Game 3 won’t make up for Keith’s comments to a dazed David Backes, but it’s certainly a solid place to start.

It tries to paint a picture of an NHL skater’s value outside of scoring goals and assists, specifically if they’re on the ice for more goals scored than goals allowed, but it’s extremely limited. If you ever hear an argument made and plus/minus is the leading talking point, […]
The St. Louis Blues are one game away from starting their summer. Based on how several skaters have played the last few games, some might have big summer plans they can't wait to start. What's there to say? If you've been around here or if you've been a Blues fan for any period of time […]
