BLUES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Tarasenko contract negotiations are waiting on the NHL’s new salary cap

The St. Louis Blues have made it clear that Vladimir Tarasenko is their top priority. That’s a pretty obvious statement after watching Tarasenko score a combined 43 goals in the regular season and the playoffs. Previously, the team stated that the Blues won’t handle any other free agents or make any decisions until Tarasenko is signed to a new contract. Doug Armstrong has now...

Doug Armstrong envisions an Elliott / Allen goalie tandem next season

After the Blues snubbed Brian Elliott in favor of Jake Allen during their first round series against the Minnesota Wild, it seemed pretty unlikely that both goaltenders would be in the mix in 2015-16. GM Doug Armstrong sees things a little differently and has stated he envisions a tandem of Elliott and Allen next year. Armstrong says he sees a goalie tandem for next year. Allen...

Poll: Should the Blues fire Ken Hitchcock?

The St. Louis Blues once again burned out of the playoffs in the first round. There’s a ton of blame to hand out, but inevitably one name always surfaces when fans start talking about change: Ken Hitchcock. The benefit of the doubt has been given to Hitchcock over the last few years, but it sounds like his time might be up in St. Louis after another team he led looked uninspired...

St. Louis Blues Bracing for Offseason Changes After 1st-Round Exit

Changes on the horizon for the St. Louis Blues

After a back and forth series, the Minnesota Wild have finally finished off the St. Louis Blues. The Blues first round exit is no doubt a disappointment for fans and the organization, both of whom expected better results from this Blues team. Given their early playoff exit this season, and their poor record in the playoffs in past seasons, one has to think change is coming for the...

Video: Ken Hitchcock says he won’t change goalies, immediately changes his mind

Hockey is sometimes painfully ironic. The latest example of that was when Ken Hitchcock was interviewed on the bench and reiterated that he wasn’t going to make a goalie change after Jake Allen coughed up a soft goal against the Wild. Hitchcock said that Allen is a young guy who is learning and the team has to stick with him. Approximately 30 seconds and another soft goal later...

Blues' Jackman: It could be cup or bust regarding future with St. Louis

The Stanley Cup has eluded the St. Louis Blues for their entire 47-year history. Naturally, Barret Jackman — who has spent his whole 12-year NHL career with St. Louis, has never enjoyed the opportunity to hoist the highly coveted 34.5 pound piece of silver either. This year is thought to be different for Jackman and the Blues, though. They championed the highly competitive Central...

Video: It took two different reviews to overturn a Blues goal

There was a rather odd moment in the first period between the Wild and Blues. Jay Bouwmeester tossed the puck at the net and Patrik Berglund deflected the shot at the net. The twine moved and the horn sounded and everyone thought the Blues scored. Toronto reviewed the play and the officials signaled that yes, it was a goal. The horn sounded again and the official scorers were announced...
