ST. LOUIS St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today the club has placed forward T.J. Oshie on Injured Reserve. In addition, the Blues recalled goaltender Jake Allen and forward Adam Cracknell from the clubs American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, Peoria Rivermen. Allen has been recalled under emergency conditions due to goaltender...
The dust hasn't even settled around the Jay Bouwmeester trade and already numerous hockey sites are analyzing the deal, selecting a winner. It's always difficult to analyze a deal that involves prospects or picks as it could be years before we know exactly what the Blues gave up for their new defenseman.
With that being said, early indications are that the Blues are...

Kevin Shattenkirk and Barret Jackman also scored for St. Louis, which made another major move to strengthen its defense during the game.
During the first intermission...
Brian Elliott might have been the last person to find out about his team acquiring another big-name defenseman.
He had other things to worry about, like getting the St. Louis Blues back on track after a late-season slump and another injury to starting goalie Jaroslav Halak.

The Blues have traded for Jay Bouwmeester. Surprisingly, that's not a rumor, but a fact. During the first intermission against Minnesota, while fans were crossing their fingers after Jaroslav Halak left with an injury, the news broke that the Blues acquired Jay Bouwmeester from Calgary.
In exchange for Bouwmeester, the Blues are sending two prospects - defenseman Mark Cundari and...
The Jordan Leopold era begins for the Blues tonight - but not in St. Louis. No, tonight the Blues get the Northwest Division-leading Wild, and they do so sitting outside the top-8 in the West for the first time since November 23, 2011 when they entered the night 9th and left it in 8th after a 3-2 overtime win over Pittsburgh.
Halak in net to start. To anyone thinking / hoping...
The newest face on the St. Louis Blues roster is Jordan Leopold, a defenseman acquired by the team in a trade that sent two draft picks to the Buffalo Sabres. Leopold will make his St. Louis debut against the Minnesota Wild, wearing the number 33.
Other than the fact Leopold is a defeseman and is supposed to boost the team's shaky efforts at the blueline, what should you...
With 4 hours to go before the trade deadline, lots of rumors but no action (yet?). Your St. Louis Blues are largely done (barring something unexpected), though with 9 defensemen on the roster it's quite possible someone moves between now and 2pm Central. If not, then Armstrong is going to have to make a decision on what to do with someone.
In the meantime, the big news out...
On a night where the Jay Bouwmeester trade stole all the headlines, the Blues won a very big game against the Minnesota Wild by a score of 4-1. Fans cringed near the first intermission when Jaroslav Halak left with an undisclosed injury, but Brian Elliott came in and was solid in relief.
The win snapped the team's three-game skid and placed them back in a playoff spot...
Hours to the deadline: 27
So ... how many of you bet the following items tonight?
-- A pretty decent 4-1 Blues win at Minnesota
-- The acquisition of Jay Bouwmeester from Calgary for a 1st, a fringe prospect who may never make it to NA, and a guy who will probably top out as a 5/6 defenseman
-- That acquisition getting announced during the 1st intermission by the GM
The St. Louis Blues once again strengthened their defense on the left side Monday night by acquiring Jay Bouwmeester from the Calgary Flames in exchange for a 2013 first round draft pick and minor league goalie prospect Reto Barra and defenseman Mark Cundari.

The move is the second in a week...
The St. Louis Blues upgraded their defense for the playoff push, adding Jay Bouwmeester and Jordan Leopold.
''It's two guys that any team around the league would be looking for,'' defenseman Barret Jackman said Wednesday. ''You look around our dressing room and we have every piece we need.''
Except maybe a goalie to step up in place of Jaroslav...
