I know, but then why aren't they playing?  And please don't tell me they're not ready, because Lashoff sure as hell isn't.  

 

Exactly.  He was brutal on Chara's goal.  Waving his stick in the air while Chara bangs home the loose puck.  Seriously doubt Sproul and/or Oullette could be any worse.

I actually feel kind of bad for them also. They just can't catch a break. Just goes to show you how hard it is to win the Cup. Everything has to go right and staying healthy is a huge factor. I mean if they get knocked out of the first round because of injuries that would suck. Oh well, on the other side they probably wouldn't be feeling sorry for us.

 

I don't feel bad for them.  (Well, maybe for some of them.)

 

I usually empathize with hockey fans everywhere, but I had the misfortune of living in St. Louis for several years.  The core Blues fans are great, but they're a distinct minority.  The vast majority are idiots, who couldn't care less if their team ever won a Cup.  As long as the other team leaves the ice on stretchers, they're happy.  No coincidence that, for as long as most of us can recall, the Blues never fail to goon it up like crybabies every time they fall behind.  Just giving their "fans" what they want.

Blues vs Bruins is something I can get behind, and cheer on the Blues...I've been to St.Louis a handful of times; really nice folks, and great hockey fans (and unlike Chicago you can wear your Red Wings gear, and not be threatened)...If there's a franchise out there along with a fan base that deserves to have a shot at winning the Cup - I'm thinking the Blues would be at, or near the top of that list.

 

Have to disagree about Blues fans.  

 

Don't get me wrong, there's a lot to like about the team, and Hitch is doing a great job.  That said, I had the misfortune of actually living in St. Louis for several years, and the "core" Blues fans (passionate, knowledgeable, respectful of other teams) are a distinct minority.  You're more likely to encounter the idiots who probably couldn't care less if the Blues ever won a Cup -- as long as the other team (preferably the Wings) leaves the ice on stretchers, they're happy.  Plus, when they're not simply screaming for blood, they're constantly whining about how national media and fans of other teams aren't giving the Blues enough attention and "respect," -- despite the obvious fact (well, obvious to the rest of the world, anyway) that the team has never accomplished a freaking thing in its 45-year history.

Supposedly he wasn't coming back, according to sources.

Any updates on the supposed interest in Morrow? He's an upgrade over Cleary.

Jeez, where the hell are we gonna put all these forwards?

 

Not sure I would agree with this.  Morrow looked very Cleary-esque and appeared to be out of gas much of the time during the Pens' playoff run.
