I liked Schwartz and Stewart's 1st period. Stewart just may be able to play in a Hitchcock system after all.
I know the preds are on the back end of a pretty tough few days but the Blues are starting to get their structure back. The execution is still a little off and we could still get a stretch of time away from that structure occasionally but I believe we are trending back to the level of play we saw last year and should be back there in a few more games.
This is probably a rookie question but what's the deciding factor for us to wear our 3rd jersey?

It is basically when ever the team chooses to wear them there is no rules or anything about it. The Blues probably have some way of deciding when to wear the 3rd jersey, but it is a special thing for teams to wear those. Personally I think the 3rd jerseys will be worn a lot less than the last couple years they lost some of their luster when teams were wearing them for 1/2 of their home games.
What makes you think that? He hasn't looked bad by any means, but I haven't really seen anything that makes me say "I really hope he's in the lineup next game!". What has impressed you so much?
He's a solid, experienced defenseman on a young team. Also has powerplay experience and a cheap contract.
Cole is still young and has room to improve as the 7th defenseman/AHL defenseman. Redden is also good in the playoffs, and this could easily be the year for the Blues.
