Yes, by all means let's overshadow a team tied for first place, playing lights out hockey heading into the playoffs because they are running a promotion for a blues hat in cardinals colors.

 

Quick lets destroy all the bobbleheads before cities riot and burn to the ground because children and fan boys alike will pour hard earned money to get their favorite players bobblehead for free with admission of a ticket. Oh the anarchy.

 

Please don't bring up the price of beer or hotdogs. It may break the internet. Please think of the children!!!!! 

 

While we're at it, let's just stop all promotional give aways and fan nights.

 

Let's especially stop "Hockey Fights Cancer Night" because you know, it's a cash grab. Maybe someone who has cancer or knows someone that is fighting it may want to go to the game to show support for other people fighting or to show their thanks to the players or the league for raising money and awareness to help.

 

All these dirty money loving owners. What ever shall we do....

 

:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

AWWWWW WORCAT, DON'T YOU DARE BE SOUR, CLAP FOR YOUR FAVORITE TEAM FOR TRYING TO MAKE A QUICK BUCK OFF THEIR FANBASE.

I'll admit I don't know much about Hockey Fights Cancer Night but I do know about Breast Cancer Awareness Month in the NFL and yes, that is a cash grab.  This is coming from someone whose grandma just passed away from breast cancer in November and whose aunt was diagnosed with the same illness in February.

Teams are going to have promotion nights. That's not the issue here. You brought the issue up by saying it wasn't a cash grab. It is. If this was any other team but your precious St. Louis Blues, you'd be singing a different tune, so stop being a homer.

By the way, I was in St. Louis in November when the Blackhawks took on the Blues and the Bears took on the Rams. That Saturday night, the crowd was 50/50 between Hawks and Blues fans and the next day was at least 60/40 in favor of Bears fans. Great city, had a great time, but fickle fan base.

I won't keep arguing with you since you pretty much acknowledged (maybe unknowingly) that promotion nights are meant to put butts in seats.  You're a die-hard fan, that's awesome, and the Blues are obviously running a top-notch organization down there in St. Louis. Good luck to your team this year in the playoffs, hopefully they do better than the last four years.

Promotions are incentives given to fans, they aren't necessarily there to put people in the seats. The sport, the product is what puts people in the seats. God forbid the Cardinals and Blues run a promotion but it's ok that other teams do it? I've yet to see anyone else complain about the Coyotes/Diamondbacks or Kings/Dodgers? Oh heaven forbid. The argument that I wouldn't dispute this about any other team is complete horse :censored:. I love the idea of the cross promotion between sports but I'm not going to go to the game solely because of a hat. Infact, I think the hat looks like garbage. So no, I won't be going to this game because I'm a "homer", I just support the idea of linking teams together to help bring cities together. I will agree with you that certain promotions are solely to bring people to an event that they normally wouldn't attend. A promotion like "Star Wars Night" or "Marvel Night" are cash grabs. But free hats and posters? Who cares? A minority of the people leave those things in their seats after the games because NO ONE bought tickets for a poster.

 

To call the St. Louis fan base "fickle" is a little absurd considering the two events you mentioned. You can look at any matchup between a team from St. Louis and Chicago, there is always a nice turn out from both clubs. It's an excuse to go out of town on vacation to see your team in the opponents city due to proximity. Now if you were from Los Angeles, I would agree with you 100%. Let's watch the first time the Cardinals play the Cubs in Chicago this year and let me be as ridiculous to call Cubs fans "fickle" for allowing Cardinals fans into Wrigley. Or, like many people growing up in St. Louis who had no NFL team chose to root for the Bears, Colts, or Chiefs. How dare those people go to games in St. Louis when they would play to Rams to get the best of both worlds.

And they've done it! The Caps clinch the President's Trophy with a 4-1 win tonight. Win number 54 for Washington and win number 46 for Holtby. Let's hope they're not done yet!

 

(sorry, I had to have one Caps homer post :PB))

Tuesday, March 29, 2016....the date that the National Hockey League told Canada that it no longer matters to it, or the world, with the one exception of sports TV rights money....and that A] sucks, and B] is a morally bankrupt way of thinking about Canada. > = (

They're going to lose in 6 games and a flurry of 5-minute penalties, we all know this.  Why bother pretending otherwise?

I thought the St. Louis Witch Doctor would cover the loss of the Rams by allowing the Blues to get beyond the first round of the playoffs.

Nobody with the Oilers wanted Nail Yakupov except for Steve Tambellini. 

I'm really starting to get tired of the Oilers' s**t. The four 1st overall picks in 4 years, with one bust (Yak) and another disappointment (Nuge IMO), the terrible coaches (Ralph Krueger, Dallas Eakins, Todd Nelson), the old boys mentality that led to Lowe and MacTavish screwing the team over for years, and the fact that even after blowing up the staff and front office they're still the worst team in the league. There is nothing else left to do but blow it all up. Trade everyone not named McDavid, Hall, Nurse and Draisaitl and start anew. Hell, fire Chiarelli and McLellan if you need to. But the Oilers as currently constructed are somehow worse than the Dustin Penner-Devan Dubnyk-Shawn Horcoff years, and that can only be thanks to a losing culture.

No, Eastern Missouri Shaman will just start sacrificing potential Blues success now that he doesn't have the Rams to bleed dry for the sake of the Cardinals.

Duncan Keith, with his back on the ice, high-sticked a guy in the face and drew blood. That probably frees him from any committments for the rest of the regular season.

 

Advantage: Blackhawks.

Maybe this post-season, your anthem singers will be able to get most of the words right.
