Re: Blues trade Fabbri

Fabbri used to be as tenacious as Schwartz and that's what made him a dynamic player. Since the injuries that tenacity disappeared, and without it Berube had no confidence in him. I wish him well but no reason to keep a player that won't play. The alternative would have been to send him down but the...

Re: 2019-2020 St. Louis Blues

I disagree completely. Barbashev is definitely the preferred option, but if he bolts I won't be too upset about Blais doing a 90% Barbashev impression for 11 minutes a night. I think he would have a real tough time doing that. Barbashev is as physical as Blais and he can also play center, take face...

Re: 2019-2020 St. Louis Blues

If "we don't win the Cup without Maroon' is going to be taken as gospel around here, than we could say the same thing about the whole team. exactly correct. thanks for getting on board. the team butterfly effected its way to a Cup. everyone is of significance. the contributions of those who didn't ...

Re: 2019-2020 St. Louis Blues

Of minor note, Schmaltz is RD and Borgnan is LD. Little more depth on the LD side where Bouw and Boom Boom's injury history might make you want somemore depth on that side. Hoping Mikkola has a real good camp. On the flip side, our depth on the right is thin. I wonder if they think Reinke is ready ...

Re: GDT Game 2: Blues @ Jets, 830p CT, FSMW (Fri Apr 12)

Looking over the box score, a couple of things interesting... Kevin Hayes, who the Jets traded for to be their second line C, only played 8 minutes. Clearly Maurice hasn’t been impressed with him. Ehlers only played 9 minutes. This I don’t get. Seems like he’s dangerous anytime he’s on the ice. Can...

Re: Off-Season Signing & Trades Thread

Being 3 days older than moses, my memory is shaky, but to me it's debateable whether Q worked miracles, or, if as we've seen with many teams after a coaching change, the players were so thrilled to have an end to the Keenan/Hull soap opera, that they played over their heads. Thr funny thimg about Q...

Re: NHL Farm System Rankings

I absolutely agree. He's got future-GM written all over him. Im positive some team will offer him that position within the next couple of years, so the Blues would be wise to keep promoting him & keep his services as long as possible. JR mentioned him as a possible replacement for Brodeur, so you s...

Re: Your Opening Night Lines 18-19

I think the lack of goal support got in his head. Everyone gets a fresh start this year, let's just hope Jake takes advantage and shows he's a good team player. I remember Tarasenko getting ticked off at fans' derision of Allen when he got in his slump last year. I also recall the team defense was h...

Re: Fixing the Powerplay

I think having all left-handed shots really limited the creativity and ability to one-time shots last year. That should be somewhat improved with the possibility of adding Bozak, Perron, and hopefully Thomas and/or Kyrou to the PP units. I also think having that dedicated net-front presence like O'R...

Re: O'Reilly & Stastny

The only knock I had on Stastny is he seemed to get knocked off the puck too easily for a top-line player. If ROR is better in that area, all other things being equal, I will consider it an upgrade. But as mentioned I do expect O'Reilly to be a better all-around player than Stas. And I liked Stastny...

Re: Sundqvist signs 1-year $700k

The contract is fine but they just don't need him. Seems pointless but oh well... Keep in mind they have an entire AHL roster to fill too. So if Sunny slides through waivers it's great. If they lose him, oh well. If he sticks on the Blues roster he will have beaten out some competition to do so. I ...
