VLADIMIR SOBOTKA RUMORS

Blues receive one-year arbitration award for Sobotka

ST. LOUIS -- Forward Vladimir Sobotka was nowhere near the arbitration proceedings in Toronto. He is at training camp with Avangard Omsk in the Kontinental Hockey League, where he will play at least this season. But the Blues were there, and they will return to St. Louis with a one-year arbitration award. Which means that if Sobotka returns to the Blues a year from now, the terms...

THAT'S NASTY

St. Louis Blues fan seen wearing crude shirt

This is a brutal picture in every sense of the word.  At least you can’t question this fan’s dedication but her attire is brutal.  From the shoes to the jean skirt to the awful shirt, all the way to the Vladimir Sobotka jersey.  The tattoos and the died hair certainly add to the winning combination though.  You stay classy, St. Louis.
