The boys are back, the banner is raised, and there are two questions on everyone’s mind. Can they do it again? And is Brett Hull still drunk? The answer to both of those questions is yes.
As the dust settles and reality begins to set in, a summer filled with Stanley Cup celebration comes to an official end with the start of the regular season just one day away. This year will be different, though. Everything will be so, so different.
Doug Armstrong is a wizard. It’s confirmed. His trades are absolutely wicked. Let’s take a look at his moves that formed a Stanley Cup Championship team, and the moves he’s made to repeat in 2019-20.
It was announced that the Blues came to an agreement with Carl Gunnarsson. The contract is two years with an AAV of $1.75 million. They also announced a one-year, $850,000 contract for RFA Sammy Blais. That leaves them with $14.65 million in cap space. Here’s what they should do with it.
While I haven't been writing blogs lately, I have been on the prowl for funny St. Louis Blues content for our Twitter account, @bluesbuzzblog. Here are my favorite memes and videos of the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs so far.
I haven't written anything since we predicted the Blues were going to make the playoffs in December, but last night's nightmare reignited a burning hatred toward NBC that seems to circulate around this time every year. Here's why we STILL hate NHL on NBC.
Like they always say, defense wins championships. The St. Louis Blues looked like garbage for most of 2018. And one of our top defenseman, Jay Bouwmeester, looked more like Jay Slouwmeester, amirite?
Some of us have been waiting our whole lives to see it. Imagine: a Blues win at the Enterprise Center and their captain, Alex Pietrangelo, hoists Lord Stanley’s Cup. After 52 years of pain for Blues fans, will this year be the year? After seeing the Blues go from worst in the league to one of the hottest teams in the NHL this season, what more could be said about their journey? I’d like to take an in depth look at what the Blues have lying ahead of them come April. Most of us agree that the current playoff system is flawed. We must play out of our division to get to the Western Conference Finals instead of a true seeding system. If we we were in a true seeding system, we would currently be matched against the Winnipeg Jets. Personally, I’d much rather play the Predators in the first round instead of the Jets. This is one of the first years that the playoff system has actually worked in the Blues favor because of the newly found strength in the Pacific.
Look, as somebody who interviewed Allen for three years, I'm qualified to talk about the Blues' current goalie situation. The Snake isn't our starter, and that's OK...
