Has not been the same really since his injury.
Which was somewhat of the concern when the Blues signed him to the extension.

Team had issues before the olympics too. I remember hoping the Olympic break would help out a few of the players.

I think we gave him too much. You can check back I though the same the day we signed him. Steen while a very good player always worried me because of injury concerns. His concussion history really worried me.

His current play he's had some good and bad games IMO heathy he'll score in the 50's most of the time and play a great 2 way game. Expecting much more our of him due to his hot start this season would be foolish.

There's still a chance he's playing hurt to some degree, but he just looks like he fits in with everyone else who's playing sloppy, desperate, and with no direction.

What the hell is he supposed to be doing?

Score yeah, but it's tough to do when the only player around him that doesn't suck is Schwartz. Steen's had a great season, asking him to carry this ****** ass offense is a tall task.

The team was playing well for awhile after the Olympics. But then injures plagued it, and everything went wrong.

I agree with your assessment. He's the only threat that teams need to be aware of and so they've easily shut him down. As much as it's hurt to watch these past few games, it's clear that Steen is working his ass off and getting absolutely nothing out of it because he's got no support. He can't do it all.

I would say they were WINNING for a while after the Olympics, but it was punctuated by inexplicable performances like the New Jersey game. They haven't been playing consistently well since the first half of the season, even if they managed to continue accruing points while playing mediocre (for the Blues) hockey.

I can tell you exactly when his play dropped off. It was when the entire team stopped scoring. Then he started trying too hard to carry the team by himself and doing stupid things. When he plays simple, and plays his game he's very effective. We need him to get back to that. I honestly believe he and Schwartz are capable of carrying this team as long as Steen isn't trying so hard to do so.

Pretty easy to cover Steen with very limited talent in the lineup.

Steen just needs his confidence back. He's been far too emotionally-invested in several games and that leads to horrible play on his part.

I, nor he, has the confidence he can rip one by the goalie right now. Steen needs to find his touch, but work on creating team chances as well. He's going to draw attention on the ice, just needs to use it wisely.

The whole team has been bad, steen being bad is because of that.

He is also taking alot of shots from opposing players, moreso than any of the other players, imho. I think that gets him off his game.

I get the sense that he could be battling an injury while still playing.

not shooting the puck is the main issue with a shot like that
