    Well, I USED to like hockey...at least that's what The Blue's press guide called it.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    If the Colts won 3 championships over the last 8 years, I'd agree with you

    What makes it best, is that Stevie Y will get the retirement ceremony that he deserves. One of the all-time greats will be going out in style. I'm really happy for him.

    Stevie's retirement bash is gonna be GREAT. I'll definately shed a tear when he hangs 'em up.

    Those pictures remind me...

    Where exactly is the cup? If the players were locked out, is it in storage in TB? Did one of the player have it with him and kept it all this time? Did he sell it on Ebay so he could feed his kids? People have a right to know!

    YEah, but the Blues WILL be back (just wait'l next year )
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    From their website:


    St. Louis Blues And Savvis Center To Be Sold
    ST. LOUIS - Citing significant projected financial losses, Bill and Nancy Laurie, the owners of the St. Louis Blues, have announced that the National Hockey League franchise and the Savvis Center have been put up for sale.

    “The Lauries made the decision to sell the team and the Savvis Center because they can no longer justify remaining active in a business which has lost more than $60 million in the past two years and is certain to continue to lose millions annually in the years ahead,” said Blues President Mark Sauer.

    The combined cash deficits of the Blues and Savvis Center since the building opened in late 1994 have exceeded $225 million.

    “Substantial future losses are projected even if you take into account what we believe will be a very successful resolution to NHL collective bargaining,” Sauer continued. “Those projected losses result from the current high sales and amusement taxes and the absence of city, county and state financial support of the debt service and operations of Savvis Center.”

    When the Lauries purchased the team and the Savvis Center in 1999, their long-term business plan hinged on acquiring a National Basketball Association franchise, growth in Blues and NHL revenues, and on obtaining tax and financing relief afforded other professional sports teams here and throughout sports leagues. The NBA rejected the Lauries’ attempt to relocate the Vancouver Grizzlies to St. Louis, and the Blues have been unsuccessful in obtaining relief from the City of St. Louis and the State of Missouri.

    “Despite our substantial efforts over the past five years, we have been unable to get the Blues and the Savvis Center anywhere close to a combined financial break-even in our projections,” Sauer said. “This leaves us with no other choice but to search for a new owner who may be able to address and hopefully better balance the financial interrelationships between the Blues, the Savvis Center and the public sector.”

    Ownership has retained Game Plan LLC, a Boston firm which specializes in professional sports franchise transactions, to handle the search for potential buyers.

    does anyone else think the salary cap is a joke?

    from espn: "Salary cap: Each team must meet a minimum, but not exceed a maximum payroll number. For the 2005-06 season, the high-end threshold will be approximately $37-$39.5 million. The low-end threshold will be between $21.5-$24.5 million.

    The numbers are based on the league's projection of revenue for the 2005-06 season. The projection is approximately $1.7-$1.8 billion. According to the league, total revenues for the last complete season (2003-04) were $2.1 billion. "

    I think it is stupid that some teams are allowed to have a higher salary cap than others....if they are going to be diffrent they shouldn't have one at all...teams would just spend what they could afford just like before.
