Let's look at it like this:


The Blues sold out all 19,150 seats at Scottrade Center 41 of 41 times last season. (ESPN)

The Blues are 11.5 million under the cap thus far. (capgeek)

The Blues are probably some postseason success away from frenzy-ing the populace in STL since the cardinals are standing to lose Pujols and inevitably slide, plus the rams are still sucking.

The Blues probably aren't bleeding money. The team was bought, mostly, on a loan of $120 million (or 80% of the final sale price) which was written in 2006, prior to the housing bubble burst. Checketts and Co. probably are getting pressure from CitiGroup (bailout anyone?) to pay back.

So Hulsizer pulls out of the deal with Phoenix because the details on that get sketchier by the minute. St Louis is a solid team with a fanbase established, and money ready to be printed. After all, Hulsizer wasn't planning on buying a team to move like Balsille or TNSE.


It boils down to this: Get a stable owner who is willing to use some $. Get the tickets to a reasonable price level to sustain the team somewhat, because if they're bleeding 10-15 million a year (one post on that thread in the link) while still being that much under the cap, what are they selling tickets for? 50 cents?

I'm with RF19. I'm tired of Howard being the prime enforcer on this team.


We need someone who can handle a pass and make a decent pass or shoot and not back down from a fight.



I'm tired of running into these damn goon squads that keep running our players, and these other teams that play tough but ham it up and dive in the playoffs (then again, if that gets you to the Western Conference Final...)

This is how I would re-align the divisions. Sensible.


NW: Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Colorado, Minnesota
PAC: Vancouver, LA, Anaheim, SJ, Phoenix (Wouldn't THAT be competitive)
CEN: St Louis, Columbus, Dallas, Chicago, Nashville


NE: Detroit, Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal, Buffalo
ATL: NY Rangers, NY Islanders, NJ, Philly, Boston
SE: Tampa, Florida, Carolina, DC, Pittsburgh (just so we can have that Sid vs Ovi man-love fest for the east coast while an Yzerman-built team demolishes both of them)


Now THAT is sensible, Competitive, and great for ratings!

#2130630 Lemieux proposes fines to teams for player suspensions

Posted by Hiei on 15 March 2011 - 10:46 PM

Here's an Idea.


GET RID OF THE INSTIGATOR RULE AND LET THE PLAYERS HANDLE IT ON THE ICE LIKE THEY DID THE LAST 70 YEARS BEFORE THE INSTIGATOR RULE.



It's glaringly obvious that guys like Boogaard, Godard, Etc are not running down skill players on purpose. There is a modicum of respect out there on the ice, unless your last name is Ott, Avery, or Cooke.

I guaran-damn-tee you that Cooke would think twice about running Gaborik if he knew that Boogaard could step over the boards and handle the issue.

Giving up 2 is not a bad thing in today's NHL.


Having another flat 3rd period while generating NOTHING is a bad thing in today's NHL.
