Just call him Eliotty... it is the way of the hockey nickname.

Stewart looks faster. Certainly hustling more.

What do you expect from a guy who watches the WWF?

Ehhhh, D'Agostini is nothing great...but he did score 21 one season for the Blues, which is surprising.

But I certainly don't mean to diss the kid too badly. I just think he'll end up more of a bottom-6 guy than top-6 long term.

So...The Blues who have come off of a very funky layover in Vancouver, not getting into St. Louis until about 5am yesterday, played a game last night, and are playing tonight...

Yet the Avalanche look like the team that went through all of that despite not playing since Monday (afternoon even)!

Please do not compare Duchene/Stastny to Sakic/Forsberg. Two parings are not even remotely close to each other.

The big question here is if we can get 10 shots in this game

Did they just say Jones has the worst +/- in the NHL?

I hate how Hunwick is slamming the puck in the corner so hard it rebounds back out in front ... skate with it, clear it or just tap it to the corner.

Other than Matt Hunwick, our dmen have terrible hockey IQ. They just flop around the crease most of the time or stand like pylons in front of Varly.

One thing I notice is that excluding Jackman, all of the Blues D are great skaters. Very mobile

Our D is just horrific. No support at all for the forwards in the offensive zone, always giving up the blueline to the opposition. But it's been said a billion times already. We need at least two new d-men from somewhere.

He looks super dangerous at the point and made some sweet passes.

I don't know if the 54-26-17 line is worst defensively or offensively.

More like 3 or 4 new dmen.

We were on pace for 6 shots on net before the 2nd... and we remain on that pace.

Can the puck carrier on a 3 on 2 PLEASE just shoot it for once instead of freaking forcing a pass FOR ONCE?
