Best STL Blues fighter

Round 1 pitts the #1 seed Todd Ewen vs #16 Stephane Quintal

Ewen had a lot of big wins in his career and a lot as a Blue including a KO of Bob Probert and a good series of fights with Probert. Quintal was a very good fighter who seemed to be a bit reluctant in the role. He could hang in there with anyone when motivated however as his fights with Probert, Twist and Sandy McCarthy show.

I see Ewen winning this series of fights 5-2-3

What do you think??

Best STL Blues fighter round 2

Round 2 features a great matchup between 2 smaller heavyweights #2 seed Kelly Chase and #15 seed Shayne Corson.

Chase was perhaps the best technical fighter in team history and would be a handfull for anyone he fought. He fought everyone during his era. I remember him mostly for his wars against the Hawks fighters such as Grimson, Peluso and Cummins and the Wings fighters like Probert, Cummins and Vial. His superb technical ability shows up in the fights with Vial.

Corson wasnt here long and he was older hence the lower seeding in this tourney but a Prime Corson was a bear who had great fights with the like of Cam Neely and Rick Tocchet. His best scraps as a Blue were against Dean Chenoweth of the Islanders and Scott Mellanby of the Panthers.

This one goes doen to the wire with Chase winning a series of toe to toe bouts 5-4-1.

What do you think

Kelly Chase easily.

Chase was very good for his size.

I loved Chaser, but I'm gonna go with Corson here. Head-to-head, I could easily see Corson winning that fight.

I think this is an awesome matchup that clearly could go either way as well. Shayne Corson was as tough as nails.

Please read changes in the thread with the seedings that may explain why some names that seem obvious are not here. I think the set up I am using will produce better matchups.

Best STL Blues fighter round 3

This matchup feature two of the more current Blues fighters. #3 seed DJ King and #14 seed Matt Walker.

DJ king has proven to be as tough of a guy as there is when he is healthy, He has had Great fights with the likes of Parros, Shelley, Godard and Boogaard. He has all the tools and if he can stay healthy he will be a force for years to come.

Matt Walker is an Underrated fighter who had 2 great fights with Todd Fedoruk when Fedoruk was still a force as a fighter and if he fought more would be more recognised.

This isnt a walk in the park for King, as Walker is a tough kid but King wins the series 6-3-1.

what do you think?

Best STL Blues fighter round 4

The matchup in round 4 crosses era's and should be intriguing. It pitts #4 seed Reed Low #13 Bryan Maxwell.

Low was the second best technical fighter in team history and seemed to have a chance against anyone because he had all the tools except a big punch. He had great stamina a great chin and could throw with both hands. He had a great fight with PJ Stock that was almost as good as the Stock-Peat fight that always gets mentioned when great fight come up. Two great fights with Darren Langdon that show off his stamina and technical ability. Two very good fights with Donald Brashear. Underrated in my mind becaus he followed Tony Twist in the role.

Maxwell was as tough as nails and a wide open fighter with a ton of stamina and I will pick him in an upset 5-4-1 in the first upset of the tourney.

What do you think?

King can hang with super heavyweights while Walker is a light heavy imo

King is one of the more underrated fighters currently in the league. Not sure I can name a heavyweight he hasn't gotten the best of on some occasion.

DJ King has the ability to be a Top 5 fighter when he is healthy.

I'm gonna have to say King.

Don't know too much about Maxwell, but Reed Low was very good in his time in St. Louis (and his brief stint in Chicago. He edged out Boogaard in a pre-season fight).

I can't remember Low really getting the crap kicked out of him either.

He had an absolute dandy of a fight with P.J. Stock.

Walker to me is more of a reluctant heavyweight. King wins the series for sure but Walker wouldnt get shut out in a 10 fight series.

Boogaard has given him the most trouble at the NHL level. Twice beating him for sure and even though King sort of got even this year and Bloodied Boogaard there is a case to be made for a draw or even a win Boogaard in that fight.

The only time I have even read abot Low getting the crap kicked out of him was when Garett Burnett broke his Jaw. In the NHL you are correct, he didnt win them all but he was competitive in all the ones that I saw him in.

Maxwell was just crazy tough and I picked him to give some props to the old School Blues guys he was very capable of winning this matchup because wheras Low would fight technical at times Maxwell was going to swing for the fences against anyone.

Best STL Blues fighter round 5

Round 5 also has a great matchup #5 Jack Carlson vs #12 Herb Raglan

Carlson had good fights with the Blues with the likes of Daryl Stanley and Scott Stevens and had a huge rep in his other NHL stops and in the WHA where he was considered one of the toughest guys in the entire league and had a great fight with Nick Fotiu.

Herb Raglan had a huge right hand punch that the likes of Joey Kocur and Joe Reekie felt the wrath of. He also had a great toe to toe bout with Ken Baumgartner.

In this series I will go with Jack Carlson by the slimest of margins 5-4-1

What do you think?
