There is no better way to put it. Columbus bows down to the Blues and it is a noticeable trend that I will continue to enjoy. When you beat a divisional opponent, a rivalry begins, and being on the winning end is always sweet.
Another thing about STL vs. CBJ is that the second most fights since the 99' season have been with the Blue Cothing team at 36, second only to the Indian Heads at 37
Hard to believe with those back-to-back games last year with Anaheim that had like 10 fights, that shit was crazy
anyway Management may have seen the schedule with the two best teams in the league, allowing for a great opportunity to see the weaknesses in the team in the most obvious manner, followed by games against LA, which has struggled to score recently, barring a game against Minnesota, and Columbus, who has been worse than the Blues so far this season, as a perfect opportunity to "perform tweaks" and see results with new leadership. I know this thought is a bit contrived, but nonetheless it seams as if Davis Payne was opted manager at quite a perfect time for it to have happened. He has gotten almost a complete taste of the Central Division during his short tenure, especially physical games, against the top two teams in the league in CHI and SJ.
Maybe this 2-game winning streak is going to be short-lived, but the dressing room, and the players mentaility are improving as we speak, and we will surely hear more and more about how players are "successfully adjusting to the system", but thats exactly the type of bullshit i feel like hearing.
poll after the jumpDoes anyone feel like the Blues have rid of the proverbial camel on their backs
- Is the Curse of the Home game forgotten and done now, and what does anyone think of our playoff hopes, we were in a worse spot today last year than now, any believers? I say fuck, and yes.
