Stop looking at Ben Bishop with the benefit of hindsight

Blues fans have been lamenting the fact the team traded away goaltender Ben Bishop in 2012 and now he’s preparing to take on the Chicago Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup Final. Bishop may join the annoyingly-long list of former Blues to win a Cup, but it’s still important to avoid looking at the Bishop situation in hindsight. Bishop’s success has seemingly made Blues fans forget...

When the St. Louis Blues were dumped out of the playoffs in the first round, it was clear that the team needed to make changes in order to reach the next level.

St. Louis Blues: Martin Brodeur named assistant GM

On Wednesday, it was announced that the future hall-of-famer goaltender has signed a three-year contract with the St. Louis Blues naming him as assistant general manager.

Report: It sounds like Martin Brodeur will be back with the Blues

When Martin Brodeur joined the Blues last season, it seemed like a short-term gig. That proved to be true of his on-ice contributions to the Blues, but Brodeur ended up sticking around long after Brian Elliott and Jake Allen reclaimed the St. Louis crease. Once the year wrapped up, it looked like Brodeur would head off to New Jersey and take up a permanent role with the Devils....
