MARTIN ST. LOUIS NEWS

Bolt Quote

“That arena down in Tampa is very tough to play in as a visiting player, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say that I take some satisfaction in seeing the atmosphere like that. No one who has experienced a playoff game in Tampa could say that it’s not a hockey town. The fans have turned that arena into a big party, and one hell of a home-ice advantage. Quite literally, it is electric...

Last week I hypothesized about how the Rangers could make up for the 38 goals they lost when Carl Hagelin and Martin St. Louis departed and determined that there were plenty of reasons for optimism including Keith Yandle’s potential impact on the power play and improved production from young forwards. Then I began wondering about […]

Turning attention from Derek Stepan’s contract situation for a moment, there is yet another Ranger that should be in line for increased on-ice responsibilities in 2015-16. JT Miller won’t be the fourth line plug next year that he was for most of last season, as he began to take positive strides late in March and April and found himself in a top 6 role as Martin St.Louis’ game...

Blues: Take a chance on Martin St. Louis?

Now that my preferred target, Justin Williams, has signed with the Washington Capitals for a modest 2 years/6.5 million, my eyes are set on other players for the St. Louis Blues to seek out. Phil Kessel was traded to Pittsburgh, so that takes his 8 million per year off the board as well. Joel Ward is intriguing and is a member of the Williams gritty playoff breed, but according to...

New York Rangers: So long, farewell Cam Talbot

The New York Rangers have confirmed that Cam Talbot will be traded either before the draft or during the draft, and understandably so. He has an extremely high trade value, as he proved that he is capable of being a starting goaltender, and there are several teams in the league (namely five) that are in tremendous need of one. His value will of course decline significantly if he’s...

Last month, ex-Islanders owner John Spano pleaded guilty to one count of grand theft and 44 counts of forgery in Lake County, Ohio. Yesterday, he was sentenced to jail again. Spano will be serving 10 years in prison, which stands as a reminder that all the social media hubbub from last season that suggested Spano was better-fit to run the team than any of the Islanders’ current...
