As seen previously, Swift Air bumped a couple of teams off their planes by cancelling their contracts in bankruptcy.
The St Louis Blues may be wondering about cancelling their contract (for cause).
They've been stranded in Vancouver for more than 12 hours (plane maintenance issue). Played Canucks Sunday night, scheduled to fly out Monday morning; initially delayed 8 hours. Following the team (players, broadcasters) on twitter, they're still on the ground, maybe getting out at 12:30am PT, which would have them arriving in St Louis early morning CT.
(They have a game Tuesday night at home; and another on Wednesday.)
Blues were scheduled to fly out of Vancouver at 10 a.m. (Pacific time) Monday and arrive in St. Louis at 4 p.m. (Central time). But when the players arrived at the gate, they were notified by their charter company that the plane needed a part and it would take about eight hours for the part to arrive.
The Blues were told that a backup plane would be sent in case the part did not work, but that ended up not to be the case. When it was discovered that the part was not going to fix the problem, only then was a plane was ordered to Vancouver.
Saving $$ by not sending back up plane = 14 hour delay.
