If you’re reading this, you’re likely riding the high I am after that statement game Saturday night against Chicago. There’s something to be said for the way the team played when it mattered most…in the 3rd period. What has routinely been a 20 minute nightmare for the Blues this season turned into three extra nails… Read More Embracing the Blue Side: An analysis of offseason acquisitions 10 games in.
I know I stand with the majority when I say that 2-4-3 was not how I assumed the first nine games of the Blues season would start off, but here we are. It’s become apparent to me that our issues are not totally rooted in “team chemistry” due to new players. Don’t get me wrong,… Read More Didn’t See This Coming.

BREAKING: Tom Wilson is a dirty hockey player. When I say this, I don’t mean he throws the body often, gets into an abnormal amount of fights, or commits too many penalties (although all three are true). No. I mean that Tom Wilson is a danger to the entire league. Don’t get me wrong. I… Read More A Pissed Off Fan’s Solution to the Tom Wilsons of the NHL.
I’m a big fan of offseason speculation. We’re at the incredibly slow point in the year when there’s essentially nothing of relevance going on in the hockey world. For that reason, I enjoy toying with even the most outlandish of ideas. For that reason, we’re going to do just that. For those of you who… Read More The Blues Offseason Moves Are Over…Right?
Alright guys, it’s been two weeks since free agency opened up, and barring another D.A. stunner (I can only think of one long-shot of a possibility), I think it’s safe to say that we’re done making significant moves until at least training camp opens up. For that reason, I think it’s time to take a… Read More Predicting the Opening Night Lineup
Wow! The NHL offseason moves fast. I feel like it was just last week that I was watching Ovechkin celebrate on what seemed like a never-ending bender (He may actually still be partying right now). A lot has happened in the past few weeks, so let’s take a second to slow down, and get a… Read More Player Profile: Tyler Bozak Could Be the New Fan Favorite?
Unless you were living in a cave for the last nine days (seriously, those kids spent 9 days trapped in a rocky hole, unaware if they would ever see the light of day again. That’s incredible, and hearing that they’ve been found and all in good health is a miracle in and of itself) then… Read More 7/1/18: Remember this day when you’re bashing Doug Armstrong.
The draft has come and gone, and the Blues remain largely unchanged as far as what we were expecting to see in the opening lineup come October. Aside from resigning Nikita Soshnikov, who was expected to leave North America to continue his playing career back home in the KHL, it’s pretty safe to say we… Read More Considering the Blues Options, Post Draft.
Happy New (League) Year everybody! The time has come where we all get way too excited just to find out what teams the Blues will be taking the ice against this coming Fall. Let’s take a quick look into what the regular season has in store for us: (For full schedule, scroll to bottom)… Read More 18-19 Schedule Release
It seems like eons ago when the we were watching Jaroslav Halak between the pipes. Hell, it’s been a while since we heard the roar of the crowd yelling “MOOOOOOOSE!” after Brian Elliot would stand on his head, making an incredible save. Believe it or not, just four seasons ago, those were the usual… Read More Offseason Thoughts on the Goalie Situation
