Through the first sixteen games of the season, they did not have a winning streak or losing streak of more than two games. Consistently inconsistent.

Mike Yeo was baffled by Brayden Schenn’s double-minor against Buffalo

Brayden Schenn had an awesome week. After scoring six goals and an assist, Schenn was named the NHL’s first start of the week, narrowly beating out Jake Allen who earned the second star. Accolades aside, Schenn also picked up one hell of a confusing double minor against the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday. After Buffalo’s Justin Falk hit Alexander Steen, Schenn stepped in and was essentially...

Brayden Schenn continued his hot streak on Saturday night, scoring the OT winner against the Vancouver Canucks to push his recent run to 15 points in seven games. I’ve already talked about how Schenn is completely exceeding any expectations Blues fans had prior to the year, but it’s worth talking about once again.

Brayden Schenn is completely exceeding expectation

The St. Louis Blues could have traded Jori Lehtera for a broken hockey stick and most fans would have felt like the Blues got away with robbery. Instead, the Blues traded Lehtera (along with two picks) to the Philadelphia Flyers for Brayden Schenn.

The St. Louis Blues are good.There was suspicion ahead of the 2017-18 campaign that this Central Division team may be a sleeper competitor in the West.
