Blues hope strategic adjustment will provide lift they need

ST. LOUIS -- After three straight first-round playoff exits, the St. Louis Blues have learned to temper expectations. They have been consistently among the NHL's best in the regular season and realize it is past time to build something for the long haul. The sting still lingers from the latest failure, against the Minnesota Wild last spring. "We're all disappointed, everybody can...

Central Division Preview- The Same Old Tune

By @GreekGoalie35 The St. Louis Blues went into another summer shaking their heads at what went wrong. As the franchise enters its 49th season of existence in the NHL, they’ve yet to drink from Lord Stanley’s Cup. As a matter of fact, they haven’t even played in the Final since 1970. 39 playoff appearances and nothing to show for it. ...

It sounds like Robby Fabbri will make the opening night roster

Robby Fabbri has impressed during training camp and preseason play and it looks like his strong play will be rewarded. By all appearances, the 19-year-old should make the opening night roster barring a major surprise. Hitch says he really liked the look of those lines today. Looking more and more like we'll see Fabbri in the lineup opening night. #stlblues — Jeremy Rutherford...

Carl Gunnarsson may start the year on the IR

Blues defenseman Carl Gunnarsson may be forced to begin the season on the IR as he continues to deal with a groin injury. Details on the injury have been fairly limited (at least we have more of a description from the usually vague “lower-body” classifier), but it sounds like the injury is a bit more severe than originally expected. Post-Dispatch writer covered Gunnarsson’s...

Holes in lineup could give players on PTO contracts a shot with the St. Louis Blues

Video: The Blues show off some terrible skating

The St. Louis Blues have started holding informal skates and it’s clear they want to start the year with some fun after a disappointing conclusion to 2014-15. Several players emerged for the first skate (prospects, most likely) and put on their best “bad” skating display for the camera. Day 1 of Informal Skates.

It was widely believed that Martin Brodeur would retire as a member of the New Jersey Devils and would later take on a role in the Devils’ front office after officially hanging up his skates. That plan flew out the window as Brodeur briefly suited up for the St. Louis Blues and later accepted a job as the team’s assistant general manager. Why didn’t Brodeur end up with the...

Paul Stastny and Vladimir Tarasenko need to play together

Back in May, after the St. Louis Blues bowed out of the playoffs in a disappointing first round loss to the Minnesota Wild, the first thing that came out of my mouth was a dramatic fix for next season. One that existed in house. If the logic of putting your best players in the top of a baseball lineup carries any weight, I think the two most talented players on a hockey team need...

Blues: Trade or keep David Backes?

To trade David Backes or not. For the St. Louis Blues, that is the infinite question.
