We’ve known for awhile that the Blues need offense and are searching for a forward, preferably a top-six. The problem is the price for one. Armstrong doesn’t seem like he’s willing to give up any of the “Big Four” and I wouldn’t either. So, if Armstrong is wanting a forward then he may have to… Read More Are the Blues and Maple leafs perfect trade partners?
From what I have heard from Armstrong is he is not wanting to trade the “Big Four”. If you are not aware of who those four are, they consist of Thomas, Kyrou, Thompson, and Kostin. It sounds like those four are untouchable, but it also sounds like that’s the only thing that other teams want… Read More Should the Blues go for Vanek and Maroon over more expensive options?
Doug Armstrong has done something with this Blues team that goes overlooked. He has managed to keep the Blues in the playoffs with strong teams for years, along with drafting great prospects. If you look at prospects like Jordan Kyrou and Klim Kostin, they are two of our top prospects and that goes without mentioning… Read More Look at what Doug Armstrong has done
Vladimir Tarasenko finally hits the 50-goal mark and wins the Maurice Richard trophy. We all know that Tarasenko can score goals pretty well, but can Yeo find line mates to get the puck to Tarasenko more often. I think he does this year. Alex Pietrangelo and Colton Parayko both hit 50 points. While… Read More Predictions for the 2017-2018 season
Jordan Kyrou is probably my favorite prospect or a close second to Klim Kostin. Kyrou was the Blues 35th overall pick in the 2016 NHL draft. He is a very fast, highly skilled, smart two-way playmaker. In his rookie season with the Sarnia Sting, Kyrou played 63 games and had 36 points (13 G and… Read More Prospect watch: Jordan Kyrou
Jake Walman is arguably the Blues best defensive prospect. He is a very skilled and smooth skating defensemen. Walman was the Blues 3rd round pick (#82 overall) in the 2014 NHL draft. He played 3 seasons in the NCAA at Providence college. In his first season he had 16 pts in 41 games (1G and… Read More Prospect watch: Jake Walman
The prospect I’m most excited for is Klim Kostin. Kostin could be the biggest steal in the 2017 draft. His top-end skill probably would’ve landed him in the top 5 had it not been for a shoulder injury. The fact that the Blues got him at #31 is amazing. Kostin is being compared to Evgeni… Read More Prospect watch: Klim Kostin
Tage Thompson is possibly our top prospect, although it is close between him and Klim Kostin. (Kostin will have to wait for another story). Thompson comes in at 6’5″ 200 pounds. Big boy, but he could add more weight. Thompson’s biggest strength is his shot, including his wicked one-timer. He is lethal on the power… Read More Prospect watch: Tage Thompson
The future is looking bright for the Blues and I couldn’t be more excited for it. This years draft has gotten me more excited. Blues not only got a solid pick in Robert Thomas but also dumped Lehtera for Brayden Schenn. Yes we gave up this years 27th overall pick and a conditional first round… Read More Future looks bright for our Blues
Buckle up because this is gonna be one heck of a series. I don’t see a more even matchup in this 2nd round than the Blues and Nashville. The depth of the both teams forward groups is impressive. Both defenses are probably #1 and #2 in the league. Along with the goaltending. Allen had a… Read More Blues vs. Predators series preview and prediction
PAAJARVI!! Who picked Magnus Paajarvi to score the series clinching OT goal in yesterday’s game? I know I didn’t. You have to give credit to Vladimir Sobotka for the set-up on the goal though. Sobotka quickly cut away from Martin Hanzal at the corner boards and went straight for the middle. Jared Spurgeon went away from Paajarvi to… Read More St. Louis Blues vs. Wild series recap and 3 stars of the series
In last nights’ game, the Blues had a chance to close out the series on home ice and get more rest before the second round for themselves and Paul Stastny, who has now missed the last 14 games. Pietrangelo talked about the Blues needing that “killer instinct” to finish off a series when they had… Read More Blues play flat in first loss of series
