Joel Edmundson talks about his recent struggles

Joel Edmundson was praised for his initial strong debut in the NHL. Along with Colton Parayko, both defensemen won jobs out of training camp and had impressive debuts, but Edmundson has cooled considerably compared to how he was playing in October. As a result, the rookie has been a healthy scratch for the Blues and will have to climb past Robert Bortuzzo to reclaim a regular role...

Ryan Reaves needs to snap out of this slump

Always willing to drop his gloves, Reaves demonstrated that he could produce offensively with six goals and six assists in 81 games. His 12 points were a career high and his shifts often featured some big checks while disrupting the opposition in their own zone. All of these traits placed Reaves in...

The resurrection of Scott Gomez

The Players Tribune is slowly but surely becoming a one stop shop for athletes telling stories they wouldn’t ordinarily tell to anyone else. They themselves have editorial control and can put out whatever they are comfortable sharing. Scott Gomez, now of the St. Louis Blues, wrote an article this past March that put many of the other articles to shame. Gomez, who used to be one...

Blues find success after Hitchcock's line makeover

Ken Hitchcock felt the only way to inspire the St. Louis Blues after back-to-back defeats was to completely rearrange his line combinations. Now he has to decide if he wants to stick with the new look. It seems wise to keep intact the new top line of David Backes, Vladimir Tarasenko and Alexander Steen heading into Tuesday night's road game against the Columbus Blue Jackets after...

PTO contracts paying off for the St. Louis Blues

The St. Louis Blues have been hindered by injuries since the start of the 2015-2016 season. Even before preseason started, Jori Lehtera and Patrik Berglund underwent surgery in the offseason, and weren’t expected to return until after the season had started. While the loss of Lehtera and Berglund is no doubt a big problem for the forward core, the Blues management has brought in...

Video: Brian Elliott plays goal with a shortened stick and baseball glove

St. Louis Blues: Should the two goalie system be abandoned?

For the last few seasons the St. Louis Blues have used their goalies in an interesting way. While most teams stick with a main goalie and a back up, the Blues have split time between two goalies. This season, those goalies are Jake Allen and Brian Elliott. The Blues have tried having a full-time goalie, an example being when they traded for Ryan Miller. However, Miller did not have...

GIF: Blues score on themselves to start the season

The St. Louis Blues are trying to put another embarrassing early playoff exit behind them. What better way to do that than by scoring on your own net to start the new season? Alex Pietrangelo attempted to clear the puck out to start the penalty kill, but it didn’t go according to plan. He hit Alexander Steen and the Oilers were up 1-0. Not the best way to start.
