I’m not saying absolutely this will be a close game, but I do think it should.

I just don't want a three point game.

Hopefully Chris Stewart will continue to prove me wrong that the only thing wrong with his game last year was 20 extra lbs. I'm a doubter who would love to be silenced on this.

I'm interested to see what the Blues can do against an actual NHL PK unit. Really just to see how they do against the Preds D in general.

Right or wrong, like you've said, we're still going to have a difficult situation in the off-season...Unless he's dealt beforehand.

I'm predicting another shut-out for Halak. 3-0 STL.

Do the Blues still have the rule that if the goalie gets the shutout he gets the next start? Elliot in Chicago scares the bejeezus out of me...he hasn't looked so sharp in practice. Maybe if Jaro keeps slamming the door, we won't have to worry about Elliot playing.


(Though I doubt that reward-system is in place with the condensed schedule)

Yeah there's basically two axes of discussion on Stewart, independent from each other. One, can Stewart succeed on the Blues as they are built under Hitchcock? I want to be wrong about this. And if he keeps it up, I will be. Two, what are the implications of Stewart's 2013 performance for his next contract considering the Blues will pretty much be in the low-middle end of the spectrum on payroll (unless they routinely go 3 & 4 playoff rounds for awhile)? This one is a whole separate discussion.

Note: I'm just responding to Carvin but we should probably have this discussion (if anyone plans to respond) in another thread, not the GDT. "Blues Trade Proposals 3" has had some recent discussion.

Pete Weber and Kelly Chase are on NHL Live talking about (Tarasenko) the Blues.

EDIT: We need Oshie, Stewart, and Tarasenko to have big games again. Left wingers are held in check by Weber most of the time.
Luckily he can't play against three lines all night

Pumped for the early start and to see how the guys play after last game. See if they can keep the pace.

Not if he fits well into Hitch's system this whole 48-game season, and he scores a lot of goals, playing decent defence, and being consistent 9instead of streaky). Then we give him a decent contract to stay with the team. He can then, always be traded in one or two years, if necessary. But it might be nicer for him to stay 5 more years as a consistent 30-goal scorer (IF it happens).

I still think it will be close. Blues win 3-1. I went to sleep early last night. But no premonition dream happened. But I feel a win.

Solid start, but Steen HAS to be better on draws. You can't afford to be losing draws to LA, Chicago, Vancouver, and San Jose.
