  • 2008-2009 St. Louis Blues

    A new season is about to start. Are you excited??? Lot of interesting story lines surrounding teh Blues this year:

    1) Will Brad Boyes be able to perform at the same level that netted him a career-high 43 goals last year???
    2) Is Kariya done??? He has a lot to prove this season to make up for his disappointing performance last year...
    3) Will Manny build on his outstanding season last year and become the sure fire NHL-elite #1 goaltender that this team has lacked since the 80's with Mike Liut???
    4) Tkachuk closes out his current deal this season w/the Blues. Will he put up career numbers in hopes of catching on with another team to close out his career??? Will he be careless/stupid with his stick and get suspended by the NHL more than twice this year??? (one time is practically a given )
    5) The young D must continue to improve on both sides of the puck. Jackman and Brewer need to continue to be the leaders for this promising, but still very inexperienced, group of young blueliners.
    6) Andy Murray. It seems like at times his message and technique did not go over well with the team, and they struggled mightily after a strong start. He'll need to get consistency out of this team if they expect to make a run at the playoffs in a very difficult Western Conference this year.
    7)David Perron. This will be a make-or-break year for him. He's shown flashes of brilliance in his short time here so far, but he'll need to work very hard to avoid a sophomore slump. Expectations are high for him, so he'll be under a ton of pressure.
    8) Stempniak. Poor Lee. Pretty awful year last year...it seemed at times he just could not buy a goal...hopefully he rebounds and puts up numbers a la the 2006 season...
    9) Backes. Probably my favorite Blue right now. Glad we held onto him after that rather transparent ploy by the 'Nucks to wrangle him from us. He'll need to stick with what got him here: play physical, crash the boards, and make space for his linemates.

    Well, that's enough for now - let's get some Blues talk going on here!!! HOCKEY!!!

    Go Blues!

    Well, at least the Blues should win their exhibition game in Kansas City. The Kings have two games that day. Their other game is in Phoenix.

    Go Blues.

      I'm just glad the season doesn't start until after I get back from Italy.

      Last time I went it was late Feb/early March, and had to read in the International Tribue (or something) that Quinville had been fired - three days after the fact.

        I received as a housewarming/birthday present Backes game worn autographed gloves. It took me at least 4 hours to calm down.

              I think the Blues have another year or so rebuilding but I like the direction they are going in. We renewed our season tickets.

              Would like to see some of our offensive players have better years and I think several of them, including Kariya, are capable.

                  Not hot but warm. The Blues will need to be better than they were last year.

                  And can we please get him a power play coach? I like him as a coach but his power play always sucks no matter which team he's with.

                          Possibly Berglund as well.
