Watch: Blues hit the ice face-first in informal skate

Sometimes even the best skaters are a bit rusty after a summer off the ice. Perhaps that's why a few of the St. Louis Blues -- including Alex Pietrangelo, Robby Fabbri, Petteri Lindbohm and Troy Brouwer -- looked a bit, well, out of shape as they participated in an informal skate on Monday. The video, was, of course, all in jest, but count the Columbus Blue Jackets as one of the...

Alex Pietrangelo’s advanced stats are troubling compared to league’s best

Alex Pietrangelo contributed 46 points in 81 games for the Blues last season. Based on that statistic alone, you might be under the impression Pietrangelo was deserving of his $5.5 million he earned in 2014-15. The problem is that when you dig a bit deeper, or when you watch enough Blues games, you start to notice that Pietrangelo actually struggled to live up to his cap hit. Pietrangelo’s...

Paul Stastny and Vladimir Tarasenko need to play together

Back in May, after the St. Louis Blues bowed out of the playoffs in a disappointing first round loss to the Minnesota Wild, the first thing that came out of my mouth was a dramatic fix for next season.
