Veteran Steve Ott changes role to fit in with Blues

Steve Ott is settling into a new role with the St. Louis Blues. Jeff Curry Jeff Curry-USA TODAY SportsWhen Steve Ott and the St. Louis Blues paid a visit to Buffalo Monday, Sabres fans saw a drastically different version of Ott than the player who used to captain their team. At 33 years old, Ott is no longer a high-energy center with a scoring touch who plays all over the ice.Instead...

Video: Fan’s slow motion view of Steve Ott’s hit on Mikhail Grabovski

The most memorable moment was his huge hit on Mikhail Grabovski.

Scott Gomez deserves more playing time

Here’s a sentence I never thought I’d write: Scott Gomez deserves more playing time. Brought in along with Scottie Upshall to provide a bit of depth for the Blues at forward, Gomez always seemed to be an outlier who would rarely factor into the roster. A handful of injuries changed that and Gomez has proved he’s worthy of seeing more time. Saturday’s game against the Islanders...

Video: Steve Ott destroys Mikhail Grabovski

Steve Ott played his best game of the season for the Blues on Saturday against the Islanders, assisting on Colton Parayko’s goal while nearly scoring on a couple other opportunities. He also was involved in the physical side of the game (surprising, we know) and completely rocked Mikhail Grabovski with a huge hit. It’s nice to be able to highlight a big hit without having to...

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...

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...
