    St. Louis Blues Take Out Newspaper Ad to Remind Fans How Disappointing Playoffs Were

    St. Louis Blues chairman Tom Stillman wrote a heartfelt letter to fans and season-ticket holders this weekend. In it, he came awfully close to apologizing for the team's playoff performance without actually using the words "I'm sorry." Stillman took out a three-quarters ad on the back page of the S ...

    Blues' Jaroslav Halak and Brian Elliot Named Top NHL Goalie Tandem

    I wrote yesterday about the Blues' brain trust of head coach Ken Hitchcock and General Manager Doug Armstrong both winning awards for themselves at the NHL Awards this week. And certainly, having those two names out there as the tops in their respective jobs brings plenty of prestige to the Blues or ... More >>

    Vladimir Tarasenko Coming to The Blues

    You know, it isn't often you hear good news for a hockey team in June, unless said hockey team is one of the, oh, say, two teams still playing.

    Blues Stand (Mostly) Pat at the Deadline

    ‚ÄčThe NHL trade deadline came and went yesterday without the Blues making a big splash. They didn't go out and pry Rick Nash from the cold, dead fingers of Columbus; they didn't add either a goal-scorer or playmaker. Honestly, it was a bit of letdown. That is not, however, to say I think the B ... More >>

    Three days after being traded away to the Denver, Erik Johnson is back in St. Louis today to help his Colorado Avalanche take on the Blues. In an interview this morning at Scottrade Center, the former face of the Blues said he harbors no ill-will against his old team but admits that he'd love to pro ... More >>
