Vladimir Sobotka Went To KHL Over "Respect"

15

Sobotka added the decision to make the jump to the KHL was based on wanting "to prove that I am more" and "go to a team where [they] will respect me."

From The Score.ca Because if there's something that the Blues did it wasn't respect Vladimir Sobotka, that's for sure. As much as I like Sobe as a player, I still think that he was overused on the second line despite his high corsi. This may've lead to him overvaluing himself, and adds to the absurdity of the situation.

Blues Got Hometown Discount For Stastny

"Colorado was great to deal with but we just could not match up on a deal," [agent Matt] Keator told the Post-Dispatch on Tuesday after the signing. "As we went through the UFA process and Paul looked beyond Colorado, the Blues became the best option. "Paul took less money and years to sign with St. Louis because it is his hometown and the team is a (Stanley) Cup contender."

A Sneak Peek At Tonight's Blues Lines?

"We'll decide the lines tomorrow," said Hitchcock, who played Vladimir Sobotka at center in Backes' spot during practice. "Other guys get to step up and make accounts of themselves, so it might be a real positive thing."

"I know everybody in the West is going, 'Boy, I'm not sure we'd like that team (in the playoffs).' They're young and they've got a lot of top-end skill, but they've got a swagger about them. They don't care; they just keep coming. I'm sure they get down 3-, 4-0, they don't even think about it. They know they've got a lot of goals in that group. That's a scary team to have to play against."

*Clang* "OFF THE POST!" has been said 44 times this year.

Fans of every club in the NHL probably believe that their team leads the league in shots that hit the post. Well, if you're a Blues' fan and feel that way, it's because you're right. Blues defenseman Barret Jackman hit a post early in the third period of Thursday's game, marking the 44th time this season that one of the team's shots has clanked iron. According to Stats Inc., that total ranks No. 1 in the NHL.

Now that the Gray Cup is over Canada, WTH are you going to do with yourselves??? We have to be careful here, all them Canucks and no hockey can make a nation crazy. Why I just heard of a Canuck getting arrested for drunk in public in Canada. Is that even possible? They might invade the USA by god.

"Maybe they have an extremely team-like mentality because they’re all for the league’s bottom number and not so much for their own businesses. I don’t know if that makes a lot of logical sense."

‎15 years ago I was in Ballwin. I stopped by the old Ice Palace, which then was a furniture store at that time. The saleslady greeted me and was wondering why I was staring at the ceiling. Still had existing white insulation with black puck holes and black scars in it.

Colaiacovo paired with Pietrangelo. 4th line consists of Crombeen, Nichol & D'Agostini. Extras look like Reaves, Porter, Schwartz & Stewart.

Via Lou Korac Would have preferred Porter, but let's see if D'Ags is back into playing shape. If he is, he's effective.
