What’s in store for Magnus Paajarvi?

Magnus Paajarvi had a pretty rough 2013-14. He tallied six goals and six assists over the course of 55 games and missed significant time due to injuries. Heading into 2014-15, Paajarvi’s role with the Blues is mostly undefined due to the Blues bringing in additional depth up front. What’s in store for him this season? For Paajarvi, it’s all going to come down to training camp...

Blues worked ahead on their own free agents

The Blues erased any offseason drama regarding their own free agents several months ago, when they re-signed defenseman Jay Bouwmeester last August and forward Alexander Steen in December. They would have been the Blues’ top priorities this summer if not for the club taking them off the block early. Any other agreements between the Blues, who also inked Ryan Reaves and Brian...

TSN outlines what the Blues need in 2014-15

The St. Louis Blues will return a large portion of their roster from 2013-14 in 2014-15. With the goaltending decision made, the Blues have a couple of very important areas to address this summer. One is help offensively and the other involves beefing up the defense. Here’s what TSN says the Blues need to do this summer: Two top nine forwards, depth forwards, depth defence, backup...

Video: Ryan Reaves’ best fights from 2013-14

Ryan Reaves dropped the mitts 10 times over the course of 63 games in 2013-14. If it seems like you didn’t see Reaves fight quite as often as you did in previous years, you’re right. He fought seven times in 43 games in 2012-13 and 13 times in 60 games in 2011-12. Though he focused more on his offense this past season (a career-high eight points), Reaves still had some memorable...

Blues-Blackhawks: Meet me in St. LouBARF

The Chicago Blackhawks start their Stanley Cup Championship defense against America’s Sweethearts: the St. Louis Blues.  The drive down I-55 is enough to hate this match-up, but the (lack of) respect shown by the Blues for opponents is unmatched in the NHL, and Chicago is aware of that. Patrick Kane was injured in a 4-0 win over the Bloos (that’s spelled correctly) in March...

Playing just well enough to get by won't cut it for Blues

ST. LOUIS -- Is it time to be worried yet? The fans that stayed away from the Blues' game against the visiting Sabres on Thursday night probably got off lucky. Maybe it was the threat of severe storms rolling through the bi-state area or maybe a few thousand locals just really wanted to stay home and watch the American Idol results show. Whatever the case, they can consider themselves...

Who sits when Vladimir Sobotka returns?

Vladimir Sobotka's leg is almost fully recovered. The versatile St. Louis forward has been on the shelf ever since he suffered a broken kneecap on January 14th. Now that he's nearing a return to the lineup, the Blues will have to make a difficult roster decision.  When Sobotka returns, who sits? It's a great problem to have.

Video: Ryan Reaves destroys Alexander Edler

The Blues resumed play after the Olympic break with a sluggish, unmotivated effort. The Blues looked slow, out of synch and unprepared to take the ice against the Canucks. However, there was one man who looked happy to be back out on the ice and playing hockey. Ryan Reaves. If you missed the late night contest against Vancouver, make sure you don't miss this crushing hit...

Canucks’ Alexander Edler Takes Digger After Whiffing Badly On Check (GIF)

For Vancouver Canucks defenseman Alexander Edler, the transition back to NHL ice after competing on the big Olympic sheet in Sochi was not entirely a smooth process. During Wednesday night’s 1-0 win over the St. Louis Blues, Edler zeroed in on Blues winger Ryan Reaves along the side boards. The Swedish silver medalist’s hopes for a big hit were dashed, though, as Edler mistimed...

Other Olympic events the Blues should compete in

The St. Louis Blues are off for the next couple of weeks. While Olympic hockey is a nice substitute (you know, if you're actually able to watch the games and not have them spoiled), it's just not the same as Blues hockey, especially considering how well 2013-14 has gone.  There are several members of the organization you could follow in Sochi. However, due to some boredom...

Blues raise their expectations for Reaves

If not for a broken hand he suffered in November, Blues forward Ryan Reaves would be well on his way to a career-high in games played in a single season. The injury cost him 17 potential starts, and instead of heading into his 36th game tonight against the Ottawa Senators, Reaves would soon be eclipsing the 60 he played in 2011-12. Reaves is seemingly beyond his days as a question...

Ryan Reaves has signed a new four-year, $4.5 million extension with the St. Louis Blues. Reaves was set to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2013-14 season, but the Blues addressed the issue early and locked him up with a new contract near the season's midpoint.  Reaves will enjoy a nice raise from $625,000 a year to $1.125 million a year under his new contract...

Gazdic shows more than just fighting ability on Oilers fourth line

Heavyweight NHLers are there to serve and protect on a nightly basis, but Luke Gazdic has some ability and shouldn’t be satisfied with being a knuckle-dragging, four- to five-minute-a-game guy. There could be something there in the Edmonton Oilers’ fourth-liner. On several shifts against the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday, he looked every bit as effective as a similar tough guy...
