The team suited up 20 players for Thursday's 4-1 loss to Vancouver, but eight sat out of Friday's practice, which was scheduled to be a full on-ice workout. While they may not have missed practice because of the illness, the list of those not...

Blues' depth at center kicks level of play up a notch for everyone else

ST. LOUIS -- More possession plus more playmakers equals more scoring opportunities and fewer chances for opponents. That formula offers the simplest explanation of what the Blues are hoping to get from their newfound depth at center. The offseason additions of Paul Stastny and Jori Lehtera should make things even better for a team that posted a +57 goal differential in the 2013...

Arrival of Jori Lehtera provides Blues with valuable depth at center

Paul Stastny may have gotten most of the attention this offseason as the sure thing to improve the Blues' depth at center, but Jori Lehtera will be the group's most intriguing X-factor.

Lehtera finally ready to make his NHL debut

On July 1, the opening day of free agency in the NHL, the Blues made a surprise signing. No, not Paul Stastny, perhaps the most sought-after player in the pool, whom the Blues did rein in with a four-year, $28 million contract. Stastny wasn’t necessarily a surprise, though, because the Blues’ interest was clear and the center had kept the club atop his list. The signing that...

Blues add center depth to already formidable lineup

There are a lot of great teams in the Western Conference, and it has been that way for much of the salary-cap era. In the past three seasons, no team in the West has won more regular-season games than the St. Louis Blues. Only the Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins have won more in the NHL. The Blues have famously had very little success in the Stanley Cup Playoffs during this...

NHL Offseason Winners: The St. Louis Blues

Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports The Central Division of the Western Conference is arguably the strongest in the NHL – it is home to 5 teams (out of its 7 members) who competed in last year’s Stanley Cup playoffs, which represents more than any other division in the NHL.

KHL less threatening than ever to NHL

The numbers don’t really add up, but they say an awful lot about the global hockey landscape right now. Petri Kontiola’s new one-year contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs is worth $1.1 million — a tidy sum until you factor in that he paid a little more than $600,000 to orchestrate his exit from the Russian-based KHL. As a result, he’ll essentially be playing for less than...
