We tend to be on the same page on most Blues related items but this is an area where I have to strongly disagree with you. There is a reason that only 4 teams voted against the new system; It simply makes more sense. I don't think it will make things more confusing for the casual fan, and I don't think the format is unfair. Time will tell, but I think this is a logical step forward.

I was very pleased by what Army and Hitch had to say at the press conference. I haven't been shy at expressing my distaste for Payne over the last year, and I couldn't be happier with the decision to let him go. I think Blues fans have something to be excited about after a very dull start to the season.

I suspect Perron will return sometime in the second half of the season but will have minimal impact, but to no fault of his own.
I touched on this last season, but I still think that the system that the Blues play is not compatible with the type of players we have. Guys like Perron and Oshie will never thrive in this environment (ie. Boyes) because Payne plays a very basic North/South style, where they cram the puck in the zone and take a ton of low percentage shots. I could see Oshie and Perron fitting in well on a team like Tampa Bay, or Washington, or even Chicago.

I can't say much that hasn't already been said so I'll just give it a simple thumbs down.
Maybe we should make shirts that say, "I wasn't planning to stop believing, but thanks for the concern..."

@David Rogers I just meant in the sense that it's a great interface that we can easily use from our mobile devices, assuming they are G+ compatible

we could use the Google + Huddle feature for this...
My favorite moment during a game was game 10 when Perron scored after that goon Thornton ruined his career. Shortly after that game, the Blues' season started falling apart.
Taking my son to his first Blues game and sitting 5 rows from the ice was an unforgettable experience.
