It’s Time to Trade Alex Pietrangelo

January 13, 2019

Alright, first off I don’t particularly like to say that. To be honest, I don’t particularly like to trade anybody. I would love it if the Blues were able to draft and sign all their great players, keep them for 15 years or so, and then have them retire from the note, preferably with a […]

The Blues Suck… And I Don’t Know Why

December 4, 2018

Goaltending has been inconsistent, the defense has been porous, they are leaving opposing players wide open to score, and then they have been utterly failing to score. That doesn’t even take into account the usual poor officiating and our usual December injury spree hitting the team. That being said, “The Blues Suck…and I know why […]

St. Louis Blues Defensive Prospect: Tyler Tucker

August 13, 2018

Tyler Tucker is an 18-year-old defenseman, standing 6’1″ and weighing in at 203 lbs. He’s a stay-at-home type with a simple approach. Responsible, competitive, physical. He bolsters these attributes with great skating and a solid outlet pass. While not being known for his offensive contributions, I still recommend watching this video. It’s certainly a flash […]

Defense and Goalies – Should They Stay or Should They Go: A Team Review, Part 2

April 24, 2018

The Season has now drawn to a close. It was a season of ups and downs and overall just plain disappointing. After the rocket hot start this year’s Blues team had, pretty much anything short of a Central Division Championship would have been disappointing. Then January and February happened, and the lead in the division […]
