More about St. Louis Blues tickets
 
One of the six teams that was chosen - along with the Los Angeles Kings, Minnesota North Stars, Philadelphia Flyers, California Golden Seals and Pittsburgh Penguins - for the original NHL expansion from six to twelve teams, the St. Louis Blues bucked the trend of most expansion teams, enjoying success right off the bat.

Of course, a big part of that success was a wonky league rule that was implemented at the time that guaranteed that one of the six expansion teams would make it to the Stanley Cup Finals. Still, they managed to outduel their fellow expansion clubs in that regard. Coached by the legendary Scotty Bowman, the Blues finished first in their division in their first three seasons, and reached the Stanley Cup Finals in 1968, 1969 and 1970. However, in those Stanley Cup Finals, facing star-studded "Original Six" opponents like the Montreal Canadiens and the Boston Bruins reality came crashing down for the Blues. In all three years they were swept in the final round. Their last crack at glory was ended by Bobby Orr and his now famous Stanley Cup-winning overtime goal where he soared through the air, arms already raised in celebration, as he put the final nail in the coffin of yet another Blues playoff run.

Their early success can be attributed to the lineup of players they managed to nab right off the bat. Legends like Doug Harvey, Glenn Hall, Jacques Plante and Dickie Moore all wore St. Louis Blues jerseys in those early days. Red Berenson was sent packing by the New York Rangers, and was a fateful acquisition for the Blues, becoming a star for the club. Brothers Bob & Barclay Plager and Jim Roberts also joined the fold, giving the Blues a nice combination of grit and skill.

The 1970s Blues Teams

With the NHL's second expansion, which welcomed the Vancouver Canucks and the Buffalo Sabres, the NHL's playoff format changed and the Blues began to have a more expansion-team-like experience. Coach Scotty Bowman moved on to greener pastures, joining the Montreal Canadiens. Glenn Hall retired and Jacques Plante moved on to the Toronto Maple Leafs. Over the next few seasons the Blues were overtaken by the Chicago Blackhawks, who'd been moved to their division during the league's realignment, and later by the Philadelphia Flyers, who rose to power, winning two Stanley Cups in the mid-1970's.

Those were particularly precarious days for the Blues franchise. Their inability to compete, coupled with the competition from the rival WHA put the Blues on the brink of financial disaster. In 1977 the club was sold to Ralston Purina, saving the Blues from folding or relocation.

The Resurgence of the St. Louis Blues

The 1980s ushered in a new era for the Blues. During the early part of the decade some of the greatest players ever to pull on St. Louis Blues jerseys joined the club. Bernie Federko, Brian Sutter, Wayne Babych, and goaltender Mike Liut quickly brought the Blues back to respectability. In the 1981 season the club, now coached by former player Red Berenson, finished the year with 107 points (2nd overall), and Liut finished second in Hart Trophy voting to young Edmonton Oilers superstar Wayne Gretzky. They would lose out in the second round of the playoffs that year, but that team was the beginning of a model of consistency that saw the club reach the post-season in an amazing 25 consecutive years.

Over the years fans of the club have had the pleasure of seeing many of the league's greatest stars pull on St. Louis Blues sweaters. Sniper Brett Hull enjoyed one of the greatest goal-scoring seasons in NHL history in 1990-91 when he notched 86 goals en route to earning the Hart Trophy as league MVP. Towering defenseman Chris Pronger, who'd been acquired in the mid-90s from the Hartford Whalers, became one of the most dominant players in the league during his tenure with the Blues, winning the Hart Trophy as league MVP and helping the Blues win the President's Trophy in the 1999-2000 season.

Other great stars that have marched through the Blues organization include Brendan Shanahan, Pierre Turgeon, Al MacInnis, Grant Fuhr, and Wayne Gretzky. However, despite this multitude of talent, the Blues have been unable to reach Stanley Cup glory, and their drought of 43 years in existence without a cup matches the Toronto Maple Leafs and expansion cousin Los Angeles Kings for the longest active futility streaks in that regard.

Today's St. Louis Blues

Today's version of the Blues might not have the potential of the star-studded Blues of the early 2000s, but they do have enough young talent to give fans hope for the future. David Backes, T.J. Oshie, Patrik Berglund and Erik Johnson are all still improving, and the addition of Jaroslav Halak in net should help keep the Blues in the running for a coveted playoff spot in the competitive Western Conference.
