Blues Are Broken, Revisited

64

The Blues are still broken, but some points need clarifying after a good night's sleep.

Red Wings Lose to Blue Jackets (Seriously), Blues Magic Number Gets Smaller

25
One of the worst road teams in hockey ran into the juggernaut known as the Columbus Blue Jackets on Wednesday night and left with a 4-2 loss. The Red Wings loss (16-21-3 away from home) means the Blues need just one win to clinch the Central Division. With five games left, Detroit can muster only 107 points and 44 ROWs. The Blues have 105 points and 44 ROWs with five games left. By the time the Blues and Red Wings play on April 4, it looks like the game is only going to matter to one team, and it won't be the Blues.

Blues Get "Sports Illustrated" Love

The national media has noticed. Some good things here about the surprise team in the NHL.

Jaden Schwartz is Going Pro, Joining Blues in Chicago

135

The best team in the NHL may be getting better. Former first-round pick and 19-year-old wonderkid Jaden Schwartz has decided to turn pro. He signed an entry-level deal with the Blues and will join the team in Chicago. Who knows how much, if at all, he plays. Quote Schwartz: "It’s been a dream of mine to play in the NHL and I’m excited to be able to do it as a St. Louis Blue," said Schwartz. "The Blues are having a terrific season and I will do whatever they need me to do just to help out."

JR Reports Stillman Has Signed Purchase Agreement

37

The great Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Tom Stillman, the erstwhile minority owner, has signed a purchase agreement to purchase to buy the Blues. We've seen this song and dance before, but frankly, I think Checketts is out of time. And money. He's out of money. We'll have more on this if anything else happens.

22

Ian Cole has been suspended three games for his hit on Justin Abdelkader. I can't say that I'm surprised. I saw the hit in a bar last night and figured he was due for a Shanaban. However, after a few recent decisions by the Dept. of Player safety, including ignoring the Pavel Datsyuk on Barret Jackman, I thought Cole may escape with a fine or a game. The Blues now have just five healthy d-men on the NHL roster. Look for someone like Cade Fairchild to get the call soon, unless Kent Huskins magically is healed overnight. Or maybe the Blues can borrow Taylor Chorney from the Oilers for three games.

NHL Approves Radical Realignment

30

The NHL is switching things up for the 2012-13 season. The league is changing to four conference, two with eight teams and two with seven. The playoffs are changing as well. Stay with me here: The top four teams in each conference will make the playoffs. Those four teams will battle in the in first two rounds of the playoffs. After one team from each conference advances, well we don't know what happens. That's TBD. The Blues will be in a conference with Detroit, Chicago, Nashville, Dallas, Minnesota, Columbus and Winnipeg. Not too bad—lotta rivalries will stay in tact. What do you think? Yay? Nay?

He's Back: David Perron to Make Debut Saturday Against Chicago

36

The Blues have announced that David Perron, out more than a year after battling a concussion, is set to return Saturday. Perron hasn't played since Nov. 4, 2010 and has missed 97 games with a brain injury. The Blues have slow played this situation and have waited until Perron was ready to go. It looks like Saturday is the big day. Head coach Ken Hitchcock said Perron would get scoring line minutes—my guess is he takes Matt D'Agostini's spot on the slumping second line—and power play time. Perron has returned. Celebrate in the comments.

Chris Stewart gets three games for his boarding/hitting from behind/bone-headed play on Tuesday. I think this was probably a little light, but deserved. Just an absolutely stupid play from the big man.
