Blues' Steve Ott has a difficult flight

Hockey players are lucky enough to use chartered jets for most of their in-season travel, but in the offseason, the players are back in the cheap seats like the rest of the world. In addition to less leg-room and more uncomfortable seats, hockey players have to worry about another travel hazard: NHL fans unwittingly reminding players of their failures from the previous season. St...

St. Louis Blues fall in game 1, trouble with the Wild continues

The first game of the 2014-2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs was a disappointing one for St. Louis Blues fans. Just as in the regular season, the Blues struggled on Thursday against the Minnesota Wild. Despite the fact that the Wild entered the playoffs in the first Wild Card spot, they are better than their record suggests. Their success is, of course, due to Devan Dubnyk, who the Wild...

Blues re-sign forward Steve Ott to two-year deal

ST. LOUIS -- He was the "other" part of the trade that brought supposed netminding-savior Ryan Miller to St. Louis. But Miller is gone and Steve Ott remains, having signed a two-year free-agent contract with the Blues, the team announced Thursday. Along with Miller, Ott, 31, arrived from Buffalo on Feb. 28 as the Blues made the deal to help spark a deep playoff run. Turns out neither...

Please Rangers, don’t sign Steve Ott

I feared that the Rangers would evaluate their loss to the Kings and say “we got to get bigger and meaner”. The early returns on their 2014 off-season seem to suggest that is exactly what Glen Sather’s conclusion was. The Rangers seemingly went out of their way to draft size over skill in the early rounds of the 2014 draft (though that’s not entirely certain). They saw fit...

Minnesota Wild: Say no to Steve Ott

#487318047 / gettyimages.comThe Wild need toughness, and I agree that they need to get tougher. However, let's hope the Wild don't sign this piece of dog excrement. I am not in favor of this move whatsoever.  Ott is one of those players that you would definitely hate, and don't ever want to see him on your team, either. Russo's Rants -- Here’s a look at how the Wild is shaping...

The 'other guy' in Buffalo deal is 'a real good fit' for the Blues

ST. LOUIS -- Steve Ott couldn't hide the smile. Before the reporter could finish spitting out the question, the new St. Louis Blues forward heard the word "playoffs." He knew where the query was headed, referencing the move from last-place Buffalo to second-place St. Louis and an opportunity for a postseason run. Ott smiled. "I knew this was a special group and coming right into...

Trades turn long-suffering Blues into Cup favorites

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Scotty Bowman never thought much about building a tradition when he got his first NHL head coaching gig in 1968 with the expansion St. Louis Blues. "I was just hoping to get the ship righted," said Bowman, an assistant who took over the team mid-season when coach Lynn Patrick resigned after a slow start. "We didn't even make the playoffs until the final week of...

Children’s Wish kid drops puck for Caps-Sabres, throws Ott out of circle

The Children’s Wish of Canada recipient 12-year-old Braden Nienaber was able to skate with the Washington Capitals and then dropped a ceremonial puck for the Washington Capitals-Buffalo Sabres game. Nienaber even threw Sabres captain Steve Ott out of the circle, much to the delight of the fans. Definitely a cool experience for Nienaber and his family. [YouTube] The post Children’s...
