New, comments

It's amazing to think that in two short months, we will be back in Scottrade Center watching hockey. Sure, it's meaningless pre-season hockey, but it's hockey nonetheless. The Blues have released their pre-season schedule today:

Sunday, Sept. 15 at Dallas Stars - 6 p.m.
Wednesday, Sept. 18 vs. Tampa Bay Lightning (@ Orlando) - 6 p.m.
Friday, Sept. 20 vs. Tampa Bay Lightning - 7 p.m.
Saturday, Sept. 21 vs. Dallas Stars - 7 p.m.
Wednesday, Sept. 25 at Minnesota Wild - 7 p.m.
Friday, Sept. 27 vs. Minnesota Wild - 7 p.m.

Pre-season hockey and if it matters is shockingly divisive for such a mundane topic. Some folks consider it a waste of time, some folks are so hockey starved by September that they don't give a flying flip what kind of hockey they watch, as long as they watch some.

Normally I'm in the latter camp; attending pre-season games in Atlanta when the Thrashers were here was always a treat because I just loved being in the arena. I also approach pre-season games as a chance to see what the young kids are doing, and if any of the prospects really make a push for the roster. This pre-season all eyes will probably be on Ty Rattie; if it weren't for this, would you make the road trip to Chicago to see him play?

I'm sure that the games will be broadcast on KMOX; video feeds may be trickier. Sometimes the away teams will put in-house feeds up on their websites; I'm not sure if the Blues will be doing that or not.
