Re: A little bit of levity

I just have a feeling that the longer the series goes, the more it plays into the Blues favor rather than the Bruins. Almost every team the Blues have faced outside of the Winnipeg series has started with the opposing team coming out and the Blues seems to get better and better as the series goes on...

Re: FTP: WCF vs. Sharks

I think Sharks fans are a little too comfortable with the fact their team scores a lot of goals. I don't think they've faced a team with as strong of a defensive game as the Blues yet. They are right about one thing. Special Teams NEEDS to be cleaned up, especially the Blues PP. However, the Blues h...

Re: FTP: WCSF Game 7 Stars 05/07/2019

I find it ironic how much they complain about their captain, and how many here hate our captain. I think fans of all teams have problems with their captains now and then, but it just made me chuckle thinking of all of you here who thought Benn is so much better because of the "sitting" incident.

Re: Blues trade for Del Zotto

Well, like the saying goes, if you're afraid to be great, then you won't be. I mean, how often does a team get hot with an in-season coaching change and a new found rookie goalie? I mean, you got to ride that wave. I still don't trust this team. Why spend future assets on a team that you aren't sur...

Re: Other NHL Games & News

Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) tweeted at 1:55 PM on Wed, Feb 20, 2019: With the waiver maneuver WSH did today — first saying Jaskin would be on waivers and then switching up by putting Smith-Pelly on — it’s pretty clear they have something in the works, but until Smith-Pelly clears or gets claimed...

Re: Ryan O’Reilly appreciation thread

The one guy on the team that stayed positive from beginning to end ------ ROR Was it our captain? Hell no...............Pang just did an interview on TSN, said the Blues players were frustrated early in year. 7 new forwards, a lot of guys coming back to the bench and finger pointing. A lot of frust...

Re: Blues 2019 Trade Deadline thread

I don't personally like the idea of trading for PP help on the defensive end. I think they just need to shift the thinking of the defensemen on the PP. Dunn or Petro can be the D on PP1 and you can have the other on PP2. I'd keep PP1 with Tarasenko off the left, Thomas off the right, then O'Reilly a...

Re: GDT: St Louis Blues vs NJ Devils - 7:00 - FSMW/KMOX - 2/12

Still no Perron on the ice for the Blues and Fabbri is still not good enough to beat out the likes of Sanford and Mac Schenn-O'Reilly-Tarasenko Schwartz-Bozak-Steen Sanford-Sundqvist-Maroon MacEachern-Barbashev-Thomas Edmundson-Pietrangelo Bouwmeester-Parayko Dunn-Bortuzzo Binnington I'm guessing F...

Re: Blues 2019 Trade Deadline thread

If I had to choose between either Allen or Steen to 'unload', I'm moving Steen each and every day because his role can be replaced by someone much cheaper and already in the system. Move Allen, you are either bringing up another rookie from SA, OR having to bring back another goalie in the trade. I...

Re: The definition of insanity

I think it was more than injuries with Tank....I think Berube ripped the leaders on this team some new assholes and told them to put their differences aside and whatever issues remain will be dealt with in the offseason. Hopefully this means Steen is gone and some new blood is added to the leadersh...

Re: Binnington RFA vs UFA

Interesting stat/chart. The second one specifically. Also, poor John Gibson. https://twitter.com/ChartingHockey/status/1095003854528233473 I wonder where Allen is on that. He’s just behind one of the Florida Panther logos. Not in a positive spot. Crazy how good the Blues underlying stats have been ...

Re: Blues 2019 Trade Deadline thread

Wayne Simmonds has been a Blues message board darling for about the last 4 trade deadlines. The only way I would want Simmonds is if Maroon is leaving. Plus, I wouldn't want an extension to quickly for him. I think the jury needs to be out on any bigger player. Granted, Simmonds can skate and is mo...

Re: GDT: St Louis Blues(+Bradley & Mook) at Tampa Bay - 6:30 - FSMW/KMOX - 2/7

I really don't understand the forcing of Steen into the top 6, and all you hear from JR, Korac, and the bunch is that Thomas was injured, is 19, and needs to build back up to the play he was at. My response is ok, but Steen was injured and out for about the same amount of time and almost immediately...

Re: Other NHL Games & News

That’s a trade that GM should make when you are making a run at the cup. Boyle does a lot of things really well. Great pickup for them and they might have another move in them still. I get the fit, just seems at a round too high. If you're going for it this year I guess it doesn't matter too much o...

Re: Melrose comments on Berube

To reasonable candidates, to be sure. I suspect Q's price in both money and years will be prohibitive for the blues, but you never know. I'm a fan of Sutter but I don't know if he's even interested in coaching anymore. Sutter worries me because he's of the Hitchcock, Lindy Ruff, etc. style of coach...

Re: John Gibson

Poor Gibson's just going to have to ride it out for another couple months before the dynamite is taken to the rest of the roster. I've heard a couple places that Carlyle still has his job because ownership/front office just doesn't like firing coaches midseason. At this point I think that's fine si...

Re: Melrose comments on Berube

I'm ok with it but i'd give him a two year deal max. Hopefully Army has learned his lesson on jumping the gun on extensions. This is about where I'm at, but I'd want that 2 year deal after an extended search this summer. Even if the Blues make the playoffs, unless they reach the WCF/SCF, I don't th...

Re: Blues 2019 Trade Deadline thread

Stronger, faster, and heavier shot than Berglund. I think it's typical of some teams to see all of the physical attributes and just be enamored with that side of things. what about the point totals thingy? In his third NHL season, Bergy played 81 games and had 52 points. Jesee has played 39 games s...

Re: Pietrangelo: What the heck

Sure he's been great but he's also doing it with the defense that it's front of him. The statement back in the day used to be "Your goalie is only as good as the defense in front him". That might not be as accurate of a statement today but it was at one time. As for Petro...It use to be "well we ca...

There are several guys you didn't even name that I'd take over Petro without thinking twice about it. Matt Dumba, Nate Schmidt, Mark Giordano, Torey Krug and probably a lot more if I really think about it.
Fair enough, I guess we just value defense over offense differently.
