St. Louis Blues

Blues tickets will be a hot item during the 2014-2015 NHL hockey schedule.
St. Louis Blues 2014-2015 Outlook
St. Louis was unable to keep Ryan Miller in town, as he left for Vancouver. Once again, the Blues are left without a reliable starting goaltender. Brian Elliot and Jake Allen are decent goalies, but they don’t have the ability to carry the team. Goaltending has been an issue historically for the Blues. Will it continue to kill them in the stretch run?
The Blues made arguably the biggest splash in free agency when they signed former Avalanche center Paul Stastny to a 4-year, $28 million contract on July 1st. Stastny was the best free agent on the market, and he will bring more offense to a team with plenty of forward depth. The Blues also were able to re-sign Steve Ott, who they brought over from Buffalo with Miller. Other than Stastny and Ott, the Blues roster looks mostly the same. With names like Backes, Oshie, Steen, and Tarasenko on the roster, this team is set to make some noise yet again.
The St. Louis Blues franchise was founded in St. Louis, Missouri in 1967 as part of the 1967 NHL expansion in which the league doubled its size by adding 6 additional teams to the original 6 NHL teams. In addition to the St. Louis Blues, the NHL issued invitations to the California Seals (a now-defunct franchise), the Los Angeles Kings, the Minnesota North Stars (now the Dallas Stars), the Philadelphia Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins. The St. Louis Blues reached the Stanley Cup Finals during each of the franchise’s first 3 seasons in the NHL – an unprecedented accomplishment for an expansion franchise. However, the Montreal Canadiens swept the St. Louis Blues 4-0 in each of 1968 and 1969, while the Boston Bruins swept the St. Louis Blues 4-0 in 1970. The St. Louis Blues have not played in another Stanley Cup Finals series since then.
The St. Louis Blues have retired the following players’ numbers: Al MacInnis’ #2; Bob Gassoff’s #3; Barclay Plager’s #8; Brian Sutter’s #11; Brett Hull’s #16; Bernie Federko’s #24; and Wayne Gretzky’s #99 (retired league-wide by the NHL on February 6, 2000). Bob Plager’s #5 jersey number and Doug Wickenheiser’s #14 jersey number have been honored, but not officially retired. Dan Kelly, St. Louis Blues legendary broadcaster from 1968-1989, has been recognized with an honorary shamrock that hangs from the rafters at the Scottrade Center.
