I'm a St. Louisan trying really hard to follow the Cards and Blues while living in Atlanta. I've been shockingly successful.

I've been the blog manager for St. Louis Game Time since January of 2013, and have been writing for the site since July of 2009. I am also the associate editor at Bloguin's flagship site Puck Drunk Love, and I occasionally post on my own blog, Thrashing the Blues.

I was a season ticket holder and fan of the Atlanta Thrashers before relocation, but I've been a Blues fan all of my life. Whatever pessimism I have learned from sports, I have learned from those two teams. They have taught me surprisingly well.

Ryan Reaves Has A Problem With NHL '14

2

It's ok. I've always wondered about the skin tone too. Perhaps some observation skills on the part of the nice people at EA would be helpful.

Blues Reveal Old-Style New Jerseys: Pass Or Fail?

28

The Blues' new duds are a blast from the past, and a back to basics look. Say so long to the RBK Edge era.

The uniforms since the RBK era haven't been the best, but you can't deny that the logo is excellent.

Blues In Slovakia To Support The Demitra Fund

+

Perhaps 38's special fund could join YCP and the 14 Fund this year whenever we figure out what player's stats to wager our money around. The Blues' first exhibition game in Slovakia is today in Poprad

Gary Bettman Does Ice Bucket Challenge For ALS

5

The NHL commish fills his quota for "one moment of likability outside of the NHL draft when he trolls booing fans." Seriously, though. good on Bettman for being a good sport. Next time raise more awareness and money and sell tickets for fans to help you out.

NHL 15: Scottrade Center Looks Pretty Good

The game's come a long way from not being able to use the venue's real name.

Happy 50th Birthday, Brett Hull

7

In an evil bid to make everyone who was a fan in the 90s feel ancient, Brett Hull is aging. Here's a look back at the Golden Brett.

The Slovakian national hero and former beloved Blue will have his life remembered in film.

Sergey Andronov Returns To CSKA Moscow

The Blues lose another forward to the KHL, but the steal of Lehtera evens it out.

(Most of) Illinois And Indiana Hate The Blues

12

Well, non-southern Illinois, I'm sure, loves the Note. Indiana though? I'd say that the feeling is mutual, but meh. The giant swath of Red Wing haters out west must be disappointed about the team's move to the East... or not.

Hull Was The Greatest Blue Of All Time, Right?

10

ESPN's list of top franchise players doesn't include any surprises for the Blues.

Blues Sign Former Panthers Forward Peter Mueller

5

The Blues shore up some more offensive depth for the Wolves.

Patrick Kane Censors Confused Child's Shirt

6

No need to get angry at Kane for covering up the Blues' logo here. The bigger question is what in the world is wrong with this child's sense of sports loyalty? He lives in Buffalo, is wearing a Blues shirt, and is sporting a Blackhawks hat while meeting a local hero. Kid needs to straighten out his priorities.

St. Louis' Hockey Homecoming Is Grit.

TSN's series on the homecoming of hockey players moves stateside, and Buffalo and Minnesota seem to be the best of the bunch.

Blues Get 11 National Broadcasts This Season

The Blues will be unleashed on an unsuspecting national viewing audience quite a few times this season.

Sobotka Awarded 1-Year Deal Through Arbitration

11

Whenever Vladimir Sobotka decides to return from the KHL, he'll be property of the St. Louis Blues for a season.

Vladimir Sobotka Went To KHL Over "Respect"

15

Sobotka added the decision to make the jump to the KHL was based on wanting "to prove that I am more" and "go to a team where [they] will respect me."

From The Score.ca Because if there's something that the Blues did it wasn't respect Vladimir Sobotka, that's for sure. As much as I like Sobe as a player, I still think that he was overused on the second line despite his high corsi. This may've lead to him overvaluing himself, and adds to the absurdity of the situation.

Here's The Blues' Latest Addition, Benn Ferriero

The Blues signed Benn Ferriero to a one year, two way deal today. No word on where the rest of his mugshot is. But hey, Hockey's Future gave him a B!

Ott Brings Grit. Remember that.

Yes, grit and determination, because the Blues have none of that without Steve Ott. Zip.

Omsk Signs Sobotka To Three Year Deal

1

Enjoy the Google translated goodness. Monetary terms aren't out, but Sobotka's going to be a KHL all-star for at least three more years.

Sobe to KHL; Blues Re-sign Ott

40

In what amounted to a hell of a wake-up call for Blues fans this morning, fan favorite Sobotka is leaving while the one remnant of the deal for Ryan Miller hangs around.

Blues Jerseys To Go Pre-Lockout This Season

4

The Blues' jersey re-design will be going retro, but not too retro, in ditching the RBK Edge design.

Jori Lehterä Is Pretty Good At Hockey

The focus today has been on Paul Stastny, but the Blues' other free agent signing could help out too.
