    Is Vermette injured? Thought I read something about a wrist injury/issue…

      That’s the rumor. Nobody outside of the organization really knows what’s really going on with him. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was another casualty of one of the Bluesers games.

      It has to be an injury, right? No other reason to sit him for multiple games.

    Fun to see the Captain Bakes lose his cool at the end of the Blues opening home loss to the Wild last night. And right behind was Ott to goon things up in the last meaningless minute. Some things never change.

      I hope they trade for Lucic this off season to boost their amount of class.

        MY wife did not like me referring to St Loser as a bunch of hillbillies. She responded that was my “Opinion”. Um, no … that is a well known fact, at least all “Boos” fans. Loved hearing the faithful rain down boos on the team early in the 3rd.

          It’s a relatively clean city (compared to de-twah) but the people are garbage. Worst fans I have ever encountered of any team from any sport. I work with a blues fan who is actually a decent human being (there’s always one exception to the rule, right?), but I did get a kick out of how he mentioned he was watching the Cardinals game last night and got the update on his phone about the blues being down 2-0 in the second.

            The “worst fans” ever is a tough one for me, as there are so many to choose from. I seem to hate whomever I am currently playing the most. I hate Miami fans in general, as they are fair-weather (i.e. Heat fans leaving early in Game 6 at home) in game they came back to win. Just a bunch of people who go to be seen. Then there is always Philly fans, booing the Hawks getting the cup, throwing up on lil girls, etc. There is always GB Pack fan, or Raiders fan, or …. you get the idea. That being said, it is hilarious that dude is getting texts for playoff game to watch regular season baseball. What priorities!!!

            As a rule of thumb (or should it be wrist?) I hate the aforementioned as well, but the blues fans have had the most extreme examples in my encounters, my favorite being the guy that tried to start a fight while his kid was strapped to his chest. garbage.

  • The Hull With It

    Face it, we STOLE game 1. The preds beat us badly in puck possession. I don’t care what f***ing corsi/fenwik has to say — that is shot attempts. I’m talking about possession TIME. 5 on 5 we rarely kept it in their zone for more than a few seconds, with weak shots from the sidelines.

    I was hoping 88 would get space/time to roam around and create. That line was on it’s heels most of the time. It was 4 on 4 and power play where we looked good.
