No, and this talking point is why I hate st. louis sports talk.
And it took people from other cities to help us get some damn perspective for once (or at least those of us who believe in this moronic comparison) and help us further realize the holes and fallacies in comparing these two franchises.
I'm not sure how we even came up with this comparison in the first place, nor do I care.
If anything, we're more like the Buffalo Bills:
-4 straight apperances in the finals/super bowl
-Horrendous (almost cursed) luck in the playoffs ("Music City Miracle" and "Wide Right" for the Bills, the Yzerman goal and the Bergevin own goal for us, for example)
blues should not have been in those series, but a weak team in the finals was a necessary result of having all the expansion teams in 1 division.
would not be possible without the crappy norris division in '80s and having 16 of 21 teams make the playoffs.
blues were well below .500 several times, but made the playoffs.
in '83, STL was 15 games below .500 with a goal differential of -31, but made the playoffs.
TML, also in norris division at the time, were 12 games below .500 with a goal differential of -37.
only the dead wings missed the playoffs.
seems right to me
that emoticon is really funny.
You can come up with whatever excuses you want.Theres tons of things that are factors in just about every cup run. If this happened, if that happened.... etc. This happened becuase of that, that happened because of this yadda yadda yadda.
Fact remains that the Blues have done just about everything except win a cup. It sucks because thats the ONE thing the Blues fans want the most. I would trade in our entire history for JUST ONE cup. And yes, once we get one, I will want another but right now. I just want one.
The Cubs have won a World Series albeit their last was 105 years ago in 1908.
The Blues have never won Anything. So the Blues are more like MLB franchises that have never won anything who were born in and around the Blues 1967 Expansion NHL Entry: Washington Senators/Texas Rangers, Houston, San Diego & the Montreal Expos/Washington Nationals franchises.
