Will the Blues make a trade on defense?

The St. Louis Blues have several areas to address this summer. The first ones which come to mind are goaltending, the power play and finding some offense help. One area which usually doesn’t come to mind is the team’s defense. Due to the talent the Blues have back on D, the club’s defense usually gets a free pass. Should it?

Saturday Night Hockey Notes

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, - Keep hearing that David Backes and his Olympic friends T.J. Oshie and Kevin Shattenkirk were not exactly enamored with Kessel and van Riemsdyk as Team USA teammates. - Two interesting situations to watch: 1) If Nashville fires coach Barry Trotz after all these years, how long before someone else hires him? 2) What happens if Pittsburgh...

St. Louis Blues Defensemen Collide, Give Up 2 on 0

St. Louis Blues defenseman Alex Pietrangelo fell down at center ice at the same time Kevin Shattenkirk was pivoting backwards. Shattenkick never saw Pietrangelo and the two collided, giving the Philadelphia Flyers a 2 on 0. Lucky for them they had Ryan Miller back to make the save. This was a pretty bold defensive strategy the Blues were using here and I wouldn’t recommend it to...

Miller's flawless performance against Flyers is just what he -- and the Blues -- needed

ST. LOUIS -- Uh-oh. That's what St. Louis Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk said he was thinking late in overtime on Tuesday when Flyers forward Jakub Voracek corralled a pass in front and was all alone against Ryan Miller with a chance to net the game-winner. Uh-oh. "I think we all were," Shattenkirk admitted. But then Miller stretched every bit of his scrawny 6...

Backes, Oshie and Shattenkirk fail to medal in Sochi

The Team USA rollercoaster ride has finally ended. After seeing expectations and attention for the team grow to insane levels after T.J. Oshie's incredible shootout performance, the team crashed out of the Olympics with two disappointing defeats. The Americans first were contained by Canada in a game which was more lopsided than the 1-0 score indicates and then they were taken...
