Blues Trade Tracker: Who’s Likely to Leave?

The St. Louis Blues are quietly climbing up the standings after three months of wildly disappointing hockey, but before the last few weeks, they were the most widely discussed team in the rumor mill. Reports surfaced that every player might be available and that the Blues would listen to any offer. It’s hard to know what the Blues will or won’t do at the trade deadline, but don’t assume that a brief hot streak will change general manager Doug Armstrong’s plans. He took aim at his core grou...

Blues Beat Sabres – Allen Makes 30 Saves

ST. LOUIS — Robert Thomas had a goal and an assist and Jake Allen made 30 saves to lead the St. Louis Blues to a 4-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night. Jay Bouwmeester, Pat Maroon and Ryan O’Reilly scored for the Blues. Jack Eichel scored his 15th goal of the season in the second period for the Sabres. Thomas scored his third goal of the season by swatting the rebound of a shot by Vince Dunn underneath Carter Hutton, who inadvertently knocked it into his net with his elbow. Hutto...

Possible Destinations for Vladimir Tarasenko

In what would have been an inconceivable turn of events twelve months ago, or even six, St. Louis Blues’ star goal scorer Vladimir Tarasenko is rumored to be available for trade. It is a testament to how desperate the Blues are and how stunned they are by their performance thus far that general manager Doug Armstrong would even consider moving a player with that much talent. With that said, there isn’t a team in the league who would not be theoretically interested in a player of Tarasenko’...

Who Won’t the Blues Trade?

The St. Louis Blues have been the water that churns the rumor mill of late, with rumors swirling that no one is off limits in trade discussions. With players like Vladimir Tarasenko and Alex Pietrangelo potentially on the trade block, general manager Doug Armstrong is serious about making major changes to his team. And yet, the idea that everyone is available is probably misleading. There are certain players whom the Blues will not trade because of low interest/value. But there are a few o...

Who Is Not Playing in the 2019 World Juniors

Canadian fans are usually the ones bemoaning an NHL team not releasing one of its young stars to take part in the world junior hockey championship. This year, however, some other countries will be without top-end talent at the tournament that gets underway Dec. 26. The Canadian Press looks at eligible NHL players who won’t be on the ice in Vancouver and Victoria.   RASMUS DAHLIN (SWEDEN) The No. 1 selection at the 2018 NHL draft has been a linchpin for the surprising Buffalo Sabres in his rookie...

Should the Blues Loan Thomas to Team Canada?

The St. Louis Blues haven’t had a lot to be excited about in the 2018-19 season so far. But, they have a very special young player in Robert Thomas, the 19-year-old center who was their top prospect entering the season. Thomas has had his bright spots and his struggles in his first season in the NHL, but overall, he’s beginning to show exactly why he received so much hype for his performance in the Ontario Hockey League. Having already passed his first major test, surviving his nine game N...

Will the Blues See Kostin This Season?

The St. Louis Blues are in a strange position. After reloading their forward group in the offseason, they are unexpectedly near the bottom of the league, only a few points out of last place in the NHL. The problems are myriad, and their decision to fire head coach Mike Yeo a month ago did not result in the drastic and immediate turnaround that many hoped for. Now, unless they can improve very quickly, the Blues are looking at their second consecutive season without a playoff berth and with a ver...

Blues Unexpectedly Call Up Binnington

The St. Louis Blues gave fans an unexpected jolt on Saturday afternoon when they called up American Hockey League (AHL) goaltender Jordan Binnington. The move came immediately on the heels of an embarrassing 6-1 drubbing at the hands of the Vancouver Canucks (the eighth time this season they’ve allowed five or more goals.) Binnington has been putting up great numbers on a struggling San Antonio Rampage team, and has even usurped the starting role from Ville Husso, a prospect that the Blues ...

Red Wings & Blues: Striking a Jimmy Howard Deal

It’s rare for the Detroit Red Wings and St. Louis Blues to be involved in a trade these days. But according to TSN’s Darren Dreger, the two teams may be soon discussing a deal centered around goaltender Jimmy Howard. During last week’s Insider Trading segment, Dreger noted that the Blues have been scouting Howard as of late and are in need of goaltending to turn their abysmal season around. So far, Jake Allen and Chad Johnson have not been reliable in net, while Howard has been Detroit’s backbon...

McDavid’s Silky Shootout Goal Lifts Oilers Over Blues

ST. LOUIS — Connor McDavid scored in the shootout after Oscar Klefbom tied it late in the third period, and the Edmonton Oilers beat the St. Louis Blues 3-2 on Wednesday night. Klefbom scored with 55.2 seconds remaining to tie the game at 2, and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and McDavid scored in the shootout. Nugent-Hopkins also scored in the second period, and Edmonton won for the fourth time in five games. Cam Talbot made 28 saves, plus two more in the shootout to win for the first time in seven tries ...

Injury Bug Bites Blues Hard

The St. Louis Blues’ season has been an absolute disaster in every way imaginable. But in the last few games, they’ve found a new way to break fans’ hearts: injuries. With three players already on the shelf, the last two games have seen three more injuries, all of them to significant players and with potentially significant absences. The injuries are devastating to any hopes St. Louis had of becoming relevant again this season, but they might  offer a strange positive to the Blues: opportu...

The Trade Talk Of Jimmy Howard To The St. Louis Blues

from Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, According to TSN’s Darren Dreger, the Blues were represented at Little Caesars for Monday’s Red Wings game against Columbus and seemed to be paying a lot of attention to Howard. Dreger said it would take a lot for the Red Wings to part with Howard and mentioned Blues rookie Robert Thomas and Blues prospect Jordan Kyrou as possibilities. That seems like a lot to ask considering Howard would be a rental — his contract expires after this se...

NHL Rumors: Blues, Flyers, Nylander, Alzner, More

In today’s rumor rundown, the St. Louis Blues are looking around the NHL for a better option in goal but stopped in Detroit along the way, the Montreal Canadiens are going to have to get creative if they hope to move out Karl Alzner’s contract, and while no one needs reminding that the Toronto Maple Leafs have less than three days to sign William Nylander, things look like they are going to go down to the wire.

Time for Oilers to Mortgage Some of the Future?

At the time of writing, the Edmonton Oilers are four points out of a wild-card spot as well as the top three in the Pacific Division. They’ve only played 23 games while the teams within reach of them (Anaheim, Vegas, and Vancouver) have played 25 or 26 games. Safe to say, it’s a good year to be playing in the Pacific. Does the Oilers Season Need Saving in November? I swear we deal with this same issue every season. November is a killer and has been for a few years now. If you don’t belie...

Blues Bury Predators – Saros Chased, O’Reilly & Schenn Score

ST. LOUIS — Ryan O’Reilly, Brayden Schenn and Alex Pietrangelo finished with a goal and an assist, and the St. Louis Blues snapped a three-game losing streak with a 6-2 victory over the Nashville Predators on Friday night. Ivan Barbashev, Zach Sanford and Robby Fabbri also scored for the Blues, who posted their highest goal total in 11 games. Robert Thomas had a pair of assists, and Jake Allen made 26 saves as interim head coach Craig Berube earned his first win since taking over after Mike Yeo ...

Blues’ New Faces Through 20 Games

Put bluntly, nothing is going right for the St. Louis Blues right now. Through 20 games, the Blues are 7-10-3, nowhere near the expectations set for them entering the season. It’s caused them to take drastic action in firing their head coach, Mike Yeo, but nothing seemed to change dramatically in Craig Berube’s first game at the helm — a 4-1 loss to the Predators in Nashville. Perhaps the Blues are struggling to gel after the significant player turnover they experienced in the offseason. A...

New Coach, All Too Familiar Result For The St. Louis Blues

from Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Still without the injured Jaden Schwartz, Alexander Steen, Pat Maroon, Carl Gunnarsson and Robert Bortuzzo, the loss was the third in a row for St. Louis and its fifth in six games. They are 7-10-3 for the season, and to put that in perspective, they didn't lose their 10th game (in regulation) until Game 33 last season on Dec. 14. Nashville, meanwhile, boosted its league-leading record to 16-5-1, winning their sixth in a row over St....

Rinne Sets Record for Finnish Goalies, Predators Top Blues 4-1

NASHVILLE — Pekka Rinne made 28 saves to set an NHL record for wins by a goalie from Finland, and the Nashville Predators beat St. Louis 4-1 on Wednesday night in Craig Berube’s first game as Blues coach. Frederick Gaudreau, Filip Forsberg, Austin Watson and Ryan Ellis scored for Nashville, which has won three straight. Rinne earned his 320th career victory, surpassing Miikka Kiprusoff for most by a Finnish-born goaltender. Robert Thomas had the lone goal for the Blues, who have lost three in a ...

AI brings “dreams” to life at the Walt Disney Concert Hall

Walt Disney Concert Hall (WDCH) has been home to the Los Angeles Philharmonic since 2003. When architect Frank Gehry designed the Concert Hall, he hoped that the beauty of the music created within its walls would one day be reflected on the outside. So to mark the Philharmonic’s 100-year anniversary this fall, artist Refik Anadol collaborated with the Artists and Machine Intelligence Program at Google Arts and Culture and the Philharmonic to pay tribute to the past and to “dream” what’s to come ...

Mike Yeo is Gone: Now What?

Monday night’s 2-0 loss to the Los Angeles Kings was a new low for the St. Louis Blues. As bad as things had gotten throughout the season, a home loss to the last place team in the NHL, with an unheard of fourth string goalie pitching a shutout no less, was still an inconceivable result for a team that entered the season with such high expectations. It was finally enough for general manager Doug Armstrong to make a serious change and relieve Mike Yeo of his duties as head coach. Craig Beru...

Yeo Must Go: Time’s Up for Blues’ Coach

The St. Louis Blues are struggling in a way that no one expected. The offseason saw general manager Doug Armstrong bring in Tyler Bozak, David Perron, Pat Maroon, and Ryan O’Reilly to supplement a roster that was already strengthened by the return of injured players like Carl Gunnarsson and Robby Fabbri and the arrival of young prospects like Robert Thomas. But despite what some labeled the best offseason in hockey, a team that missed the playoffs by just a point in 2017-18 now sits dead l...

Blues’ Sundqvist: An Unexpected Bright Spot

There were many expectations for the St. Louis Blues entering the 2018-19 season. After an incredibly eventful offseason, the least of which was a return to the Stanley Cup Playoffs. In addition, fans expected big things from new arrivals like Ryan O’Reilly and Tyler Bozak, as well as returning stars like Brayden Schenn and Vladimir Tarasenko. Nowhere on that list of expectations was Oskar Sundqvist’s blossoming into a significant contributor. Though Sundqvist is still young (24), he’s bee...

Blues Should Strike Fast & Hire Quenneville

It’s not often that someone who has been recently fired becomes the hottest commodity available, but that is what happened when Joel Quenneville, the second winning-est coach in NHL history, was fired early Tuesday morning by the Chicago Blackhawks. Despite coaching the team to three Stanley Cup championships, an unexpected downturn in performance coupled with growing tension between Quenneville and the front office, led to the Blackhawks’ decision to move on. Quenneville is now a free age...

The Blues’ October: 5 Lingering Questions

Sitting at 3-4-3, there’s no question that the St. Louis Blues’ October has not gone how they planned. After a blockbuster offseason, when general manager Doug Armstrong brought in David Perron, Tyler Bozak, and Ryan O’Reilly (among others), the faltering start has already led to some questions being asked of head coach Mike Yeo. But Yeo isn’t the only person deserving to be questioned. The whole team has failed in considerable ways, and while there have been a few bright spots, they have ...

Blues Moves: Fabbri Returns, Allen Injured & Call-Ups

The St. Louis Blues had their backs to the wall before Saturday’s commanding 7-3 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks. But the joy of the victory was muted somewhat by the injury which took Jake Allen out of the game late in the second period. After a late collision with teammate Zach Sanford in his own net, Allen left the game and did not return. Consequently, the Blues called up goaltending prospect Ville Husso from the AHL today to support Chad Johnson with Allen on the shelf. But Husso wasn’t...

The St. Louis Blues Thomas Conundrum

The St. Louis Blues played their seventh game of the season on Saturday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs, and for the second straight game, top prospect Robert Thomas was scratched from the lineup. Despite the Blues’ victory, it’s a concerning trend for the 19-year-old, who was consistently ranked amongst the league’s top prospects entering the season. The repeated scratches have led some fans to question whether head coach Mike Yeo is falling into an old pattern. Yeo has frequently b...

St. Louis Blues: Time to Panic?

After a long offseason of exciting moves and building expectations, the St. Louis Blues have had an inauspicious start to the season to say the least. Allowing eleven goals across back-to-back losses, the Blues already have their fans in fits over what may become of this young season. Particularly troublesome is the apparent inconsistency of the team’s defense, as well as the questionable play of the team’s goaltender, Jake Allen, who was often labeled as St. Louis’ biggest weakness heading into...
