The Blues head into their last game before the trade deadline with the burden of low expectations on their shoulders.

Steve Roberts-USA TODAY Sports

What a difference a few months make, eh, Blues fans? We've gone from expecting a team who knows how to play strong hockey to expecting a team that knows how to continue a major losing streak.

Learned helplessness is a thing, and it looks like both the Blues and their fans have a case of it. The team has been very forthcoming with answering questions on their play, and have become adept at responding with some variation of "we're playing well/mostly doing the right things/one mistake happens."

I do hate to break it to them, but if they were playing well, perhaps they'd still solidly be in a playoff position.

This is your GameDay Thread. Comment like you hate 11:00 starts.

Let's do this. Let's Go Blues.
