The St. Louis Blues upgraded their defense for the playoff push, adding Jay Bouwmeester and Jordan Leopold.

St. Louis Blues: General Manager Doug Armstrong deserves kudos

After making two shrewd moves to bring in Jordan Leopold and Jay Bouwmeester to shore up the left-side of the team's defense, St. Louis Blues general manager Doug Armstrong may have pulled off his biggest heist of the week on Wednesday by sending unneeded defenseman Wade Redden to the Boston Bruins in exchange for a conditional draft pick. Kudos to Armstrong for making the...

Did the Blues win the Jay Bouwmeester trade?

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...

Blues shockingly trade for Jay Bouwmeester

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...

Bruins Trade For St. Louis Defenseman Wade Redden

Just before the NHL trade deadline passed, the Bruins pulled the trigger on St. Louis Blues defenseman Wade Redden.  The 35 year old veteran is on a one year contract and will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. In return, the Bruins send the Blues a seventh round draft pick in 2014. Redden was the second overall draft pick in 1995 and spent the first 11 years...

Dmitrij Jaskin signs a three-year entry level deal with the Blues

Lost amidst the insanity that was the few days leading up to the NHL trade deadline, the St. Louis Blues signed prospect Dmitrij Jaskin to a three-year entry level contract, as reported by the team's official site.  Jaskin, the Blues' second-round pick (41st overall) from the 2011 Draft, previously was skating in the QMJHL (Quebec Major Junior Hockey League), but will...

Blues beat Wild to end skid

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. Jaden Schwartz and Andy McDonald each had a goal and an assist, Elliott stepped in and made 19 saves, and...

Report: Jaroslav Halak to miss 3 weeks

According to a report made to ESPN, Jaroslav Halak is expected to miss approximately three weeks with a lower-body injury. Halak suffered the injury with about a minute left in the first period against the Minnesota Wild when he stretched his legs out to make a save.  Barring a trade before today's deadline, the Blues will be forced to roll with Brian Elliott and Jake Allen...

Can The Blues Win With Elliott & Allen?

from Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Jaroslav Halak’s exasperating season came to a painful end. Once again, his elasticity failed him. Maybe he will be able to play again by playoff time, maybe he won’t. Maybe he still has a bright future with the Blues, maybe he doesn’t. His season -- and his career with the Blues – sits firmly in limbo. Who...

Wade Redden Traded to Boston by   Bill Sunshine

  The Boston Bruins have acquired St. Louis Blues defensemen Wade Redden for a 7th round draft pick. After trading for Jay Bouwmeester and Jordan Leopold, the Blues had a log jam of NHL-ready defensemen and were willing to part with one of them for the right price; a conditional pick was enough for Redden.
