Game Time Mail Bag: Summer Lovin’ Edition

Photo by John Russell/NHLI via Questions? Send them over! It’s time for every hockey fan’s least favorite part of the year: the summer doldrums. The draft is done, free agency has slowed to a crawl (and is probably done for the Blues), David Perron is settling into his new home in Detroit. We’ve evaluated the Blues’ off-season. We’ve looked at who we think the Blues’ breakout star is going to be this year. We’re bored. You’re bored. Let’s get un-bored together. If you have any questions that you’d like for us at Game Time to answer, please send them...

Who will be the Blues’ impact player this season?

Who will be the Blues’ impact player this season?

Photo by Scott Rovak/NHLI via There are notable names to choose from. The loss of David Perron during free agency was a blow to the Blues on several levels. They lost a locker room favorite, the guy that always came back - who now knows if he doesn’t see himself ever returning to St. Louis. The team also lost a key forward who put up 27 goals and 30 assists at the age of 34 years old. Perron has only gotten better with age, and now he gets to be a mentor to a young Detroit Red Wings team who Steve Yzerman is turning into a playoff contender piece by piece. Clearly,...

Blues lose three on first day of free agency

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports On the first day of the NHL free agency period, the St. Louis Blues lost three players, including two fan favorites. On a very eventful, and stressful first day of the NHL’s annual free agency period, the St. Louis Blues said goodbye to three players: Dakota Joshua, who signed with the Vancouver Canucks, Charlie Lindgren (Washington Capitals), and the most significant loss, fan-favorite forward David Perron who up until yesterday when he signed a two-year deal with the Detroit Red Wings, had never signed a contract with an NHL team...

Thank you, David Perron

Thank you, David Perron

Jeff Le-USA TODAY Sports The Blues didn’t hold on to the veteran forward. The 2022 NHL free agency started on Wednesday at 11 am Central, and going in the St. Louis Blues were the subject of multiple trade rumors.Blues forward David Perron wanted to test the open market — and he stuck by his word. Perron signed a two-year, $9.5 million contract with the Detroit Red Wings. He’ll become a UFA in 2024-25. Of course, he can return to St. Louis for a fourth stint.

Blues let unrestricted free agent David Perron walk, sign deal with Detroit Red Wings

Photo by Dave Reginek/NHLI via This one is a genuine head scratcher. When it was announced that David Perron would be testing the UFA market, the way that the Blues and journalists covering the team were talking, it sounded like he would be leaving either for a long-term deal or a high cost deal that Doug Armstrong wouldn’t be able to match. Today, David Perron tested that market and decided to continue the direct route that the Blues have established with the Detroit Red Wings, signing a two-year deal worth $4.75 million. That’s a reasonable term for a player who...

What does David Perron testing the market mean for the Blues?

Photo by Matthew Stockman/ Fans weren’t happy when the news leaked - now the speculation starts. If you ask Blues fans to name one of the team’s most consistently successful players over the last four seasons, chances are very good they’re going to name David Perron. If you ask them what UFA they don’t want to lose to the market, chances are even better that their response is David Perron. When the news of Perron wanting to test the open market dropped last night, there were very few voices who were happy about the news. Re: Perron, unless the Blues make a...
