Blues news

  • If you can get past Derek Armstrong staring a hole through you ... you can read an interesting piece about the newest Blue -- a Blue I'm convinced makes the big club and plays significant minutes. [Blues]
  • A season preview of the 'Note. [Sporting News]
  • Carlo Colaiacovo is happy and, most importantly, healthy. He's going to have a big season for the Blues. So big, that the team trades one of its young puck-moving d-men in midseason for a scoring threat. My fearless prediction for the season. []
  • When David Backes talks, you listen. By the way, did anyone else notice Backes wore an 'A' in the preseason opener? [Sporting News]
  • Large Ben Bishop, who is a beast in NHL 09 based on his large frame, isn't in the doghouse with the Blues. []
  • JR chat. Go. []

  • Patrik Elias is going to be out some time with a groin issue. Adjust your fantasy lineups accordingly. [TSN]
  • Theoren Fleury is really going to play in an NHL. Good luck? [TSN]
  • Interesting story about fake Twitter accounts. The Capitals are encouraging all players to get real accounts, so people won't be confused by fake ones. Roman Polak doesn't understand that fuss. [WaPo]

  • Nikolai Zherdev talks about leaving the NHL for the KHL. [Puck Daddy]

From Senor Gallagher: "This has no relevance to the site, but it makes me laugh every time. plus a friend once pointed out that this is the essential difference between boys and girls - girls could never peer pressure a friend into doing this.
