Blues: Make up your mind on Ken Hitchcock

I could just be confused, but wasn’t it Doug Armstrong, General Manager of the St. Louis Blues who said back in September that the head coaching job was Ken Hitchcock’s until the coach decided he didn’t want it. If that’s so, then why does every comment from Hitchcock sound like a man waiting in a green room for the director to call his name to the set? What is going on...

Blues miss out on Mike Babcock, but that’s not a bad thing

The last few days saw the St. Louis Blues unexpectedly thrust into the middle of the battle for Mike Babcock. The Blues never appeared to be a contender or a favorite for Babcock, but the Blues at least made it known they were interested in his services.

Report: It sounds like Martin Brodeur will be back with the Blues

When Martin Brodeur joined the Blues last season, it seemed like a short-term gig. That proved to be true of his on-ice contributions to the Blues, but Brodeur ended up sticking around long after Brian Elliott and Jake Allen reclaimed the St. Louis crease. Once the year wrapped up, it looked like Brodeur would head off to New Jersey and take up a permanent role with the Devils....

St. Louis Blues: A change in the core could be best

This past season for the St. Louis Blues could mark the end of an era. With many changes that could be expected to come in the offseason, these could be the final days that the Blue’s core remains the same.

Changes on the horizon for the St. Louis Blues

After a back and forth series, the Minnesota Wild have finally finished off the St. Louis Blues.

Video: Ken Hitchcock says he won’t change goalies, immediately changes his mind

Hockey is sometimes painfully ironic. The latest example of that was when Ken Hitchcock was interviewed on the bench and reiterated that he wasn’t going to make a goalie change after Jake Allen coughed up a soft goal against the Wild. Hitchcock said that Allen is a young guy who is learning and the team has to stick with him. Approximately 30 seconds and another soft goal later...
