St. Louis Blues Need to Realize Money is Power

gordon_gekko

Let me begin by quoting a great American, Gordon Gekko.  “Greed, for lack of a better word, is good”.  At some point, the Blues must adhere to these words of wisdom and take the advice of this Wall Street felon.  Note to Blues ownership, get greedy and obsess about winning  a Stanley Cup.

But first, let’s dive into some of the real issues the Bluenote are experiencing.  Anybody with half a hockey brain is fully aware of the injuries which have plagued the team so far this season.  They have been without three of their top forwards for much of the campaign.  So until they see the shining faces of T.J Oshie (broken ankle, expected back near the All-Star break), David Perron (concussion, no timetable set for his return) and Andy McDonald (see David Perron), this squad will continue to struggle lighting the lamp.

The power play is a bigger joke than the United States Government.  Try to digest some of these numbers.  The team ranks 26th in the league at a 14.9% success rate.  Only Edmonton, New Jersey, Columbus and Florida are weaker.  To put into better perspective, Vancouver leads the league at 25%.  For those of you who did not finish grade school, that’s 10%  better than the Blues.

Here’s some more disturbing facts.

St. Louis Blues are Missing Shots and Missing them Badly

st-louis-blues

Are you, my beautiful, loyal, faithful audience growing tired of reading my articles blaming the St. Louis Blues management?  If so, then definitely continue reading.

I am going to place new blame on what is happening with the injury-riddled Bluenote.  Ready?  Here you go.  It’s their vision.  Yes, that’s right.  Eyes.  You know, those two balls (not those, you morons) that God (or Mike Keenan) gave us to see incredible sights with such as Girls Gone Wild Part 12.  Allow me to explain, please.

Have you not noticed how many times the Blues shoot the biscuit wide?  Way wide?  I’m not talking about 40- foot shots either.  Shots from the slot, shots from the dots, shots with nobody in front of them to screen their vision!  Please tell me you have seen this ugly trend.  This disturbing, repetitive behavior finally caused me to do some research.  Or at least it forced me to tell my intern to do the work for me.  What, you really think I’m going to waste my time looking up numbers to educate you future felons?  Trust me, there are numerous advantages to having 19-year old interns.  Female interns.
