Umm, in a word, YES.  I am not even going to humor the notion that Miller is still in Buffalo come next Wednesday (sorry any Buffalonians holding out hope), it’s a formality and simply a matter of when.  I am curious as to what exactly Buffalo is expecting in return, but I think there a few different options that make sense for the Blues.  Perhaps a draft pick, Jaro, and Chris Stewart would be sufficient?  Maybe an underachieving Berglund and Jaro?  Perhaps even a Jake Allen would be enough to satisfy Buffalo (although I shutter to think of trading another potential Ben Bishop).  I don’t like the idea of Doug Armstrong trading away any of the young core talent (including Ty Rattie), but I don’t think Chris Stewart is currently a vital cog for the Blues in winning a Cup this year.  The same argument could be made for Berglund or Allen (although trading Allen has much larger potential long-term impacts).

Having an elite goalie always seems to be a common denominator amongst former champions (excluding the Blackhawks).  The Blues have been better at scoring this year when compared to previous seasons, but the post season is a different animal where goals always seem to be at a premium.  With that in mind, it is imperative the Blues have someone between the pipes who can stop every shot he should (and a handful of ones he shouldn’t).  I am sure we will all be mesmerized by the daily rumors being spewed on Twitter, but do not be surprised if by the end of the weekend Ryan Miller becomes a Blue (also don’t be surprised if he doesn’t).  Heck, I may preorder my Miller jersey tonight.  Let’s go Blues!

Last night the two best teams from their respective conference paired off in Boston. The Blues got the win – a small consolation prize for the city of St. Louis after a steroid-aided Red Sox team took out the Cardinals in this years World Series. Although Boston has the most points in the East it is worth noting they would not even qualify for the playoffs if they played in the West. Regardless, the Blues celebrated with a 3-2 shootout win thanks to shootout goals by Steen and Roy. The dickbags from Boston could only watch as their goaltender through a temper tantrum on the ice after some questionable goaltending in the shootout.

The Blues will be back home Saturday, and will look to improve on their league best winning percentage when the Dallas Stars visit the Scottrade Center.

Well, it wasn’t easy, but the St. Louis Blues have taken a 2-0 series lead against the former Stanley Cup Champion L.A. Queens (cough cough), I mean Kings. Now let’s be honest, had it not been for terrible officiating in the first period the Blues win this game going away, but the fact is they had to face adversity, once again, a trend they have seen too much this season.

Tonight, enjoy your Molson and your Labatt Blue because we are celebrating Canada’s own Barret Jackman, one of the more underrated “Blue” Collar Blues. After watching this game, one thing is for sure! there ain’t no Jason Collins in the Blues locker room.

Last night’s Blue’s win was really a microcosm of Jared from Subway’s life story.  Just like Jared dominates a 6-inch turkey club from Subway, the St. Louis Blues dominated the L.A. Kings.  The Blues will look to continue to wipe up the kings, just like Jared wipes after he FULLY digests his meatball marinara.  The Blues had to battle through adversity after giving up the tying goal with just 30 seconds remaining in regulation.  However, just like Jared didn’t give up after he was 400 pounds overweight, unemployed, and homeless; the Blues kept their eye on the prize and prevailed in overtime. 

The L.A. “Burger” Kings kept it close and really enticed Jared into falling for their temping charbroiled burgers, and he almost made a “whopper” blunder by giving in to the Kings with just 30 seconds to go.  However, the sassy spicy Italians that are the St. Louis Blues decided to EAT FRESH!  It can only be assumed that today Darryl Sutter is the equivalent to an “Angry Whopper” regarding his goalie choice, ya know, tasty and delicious at first, but you soon realize it was a bad decision ‘cause it’s not going to be as much fun putting him in as it is… well, ya know…  Bloody drawers and Angry Whoppers aside, it was one hell of a performance by the Blues that should be commended.  Get comfortable and stay tuned, it’s going to be a great series.

Who is ready for some hard hitting, puck shooting, head punching playoff hockey?  This writer is personally more excited than Tiger Woods at an all you can eat Asian buffet.  With the Stanley Cup Playoffs beginning tomorrow it is time the Unbiased Sports Reports made their unbiased Stanley Cup Champion prediction: The St. Louis Blues.

It is no secret that the Blues have followed their hearts all year.  As coach Hitchcock famously said, “We lead as much as possible, but when we must follow… We follow our hearts.”  Well said Hitch!  We couldn’t agree more with your sentiment, and know that the Blues will use their Grinch hearts (after he has his epiphany of course) to bring “3x” the pain to their opponents.

You better believe that on Tuesday night the Scottrade Center will be rockin louder than Patrick Kane at a Miley Cyrus concert.  The boisterous atmosphere will give the Blues all the inspiration they need to really take it to the Kings.  The Blues have not forgotten about what happened last year in the playoffs.  The Kings really drew a short straw and will have to face the hottest regular season team in the first round.

The Blues have some key players that will be real difference makers throughout the playoffs.  Take Vladimir Sabotka for example, this little engine will not quit!  Just when you think you’ve escaped him, he’ll be on you quicker than Jonathan Toews is on a VIP list for a Magic Mike première.  He really helps define this team’s mentality, look for him to have a huge impact in the first series against the Kings.

If the Blues advance past the first round they will have a cakewalk in the conference semis.  Both the Wild and the Blackhawks are incredibly weak playoff teams and both teams looked anything but strong the final week of the season.  This is our unbiased opinion.  If you disagree (It’s cause you are wrong), please let us know.
