Larry Robinson wins his tenth ring. That’s incredible.

How the St Louis Blues team was constructed:

Mostly through drafting and development with some recent aggressive trading:

It all started 11 years ago when they drafted Alex Pietrangelo 4th overall in 2008, one of their highest picks after 1st overall Erik Johnson in 2006 who was traded 3 years later for Shattenkirk ++)

2010 Schwartz #14, Tarasenko #16 (pick acquired from Ottawa for David Rundblad).
2011 Edmundson #46, Binnington #88 (pick acquired from Tampa for Eric Brewer).
2012 Parayko #86
2014 Barbashev #33, Blais #176
2015 Dunn #56
2017 Thomas #20

About a million small trades, and here are the notables;

Trades:

2008 - Stempniak, Colaiacovo traded for Steen

2013 - Jay Bouwmeester acquired from Flames for a 1st, 4th, Cundari, Berra.

2015 - traded Cole for Bortuzzo

Started to get aggressive in 2017 onwards, alot of 1st round picks traded for or acquired:

2017 - acquired 1st, 2nd Sanford, Malone giving up Shattenkirk, Copley.

Traded Reaves and a 2nd for Oskar Sundqvist + 1st (boom).

Traded Lehtera, 1st, cond 1st for Brayden Schenn.

2018 - big sell, traded Paul Stastny for Foley, 1st, 4th at trade deadline.

July 1st Acquired big man Ryan O'Reilly for Sobotka, Berglund, Thompson, 1st, 2nd.

UFA's: Maroon, Perron, Bozak.


Schwartz - Schenn - Tarasenko
Sanford - ROR - Perron
Maroon - Bozak - Thomas
Blais - Sundqvist - Steen
Barbashev

Gunnarsson - Pietrangelo

Boston is now in sole possession of the record for most Stanley Cup Final losses.

Perhaps there is a god after all?

Ryan O'Reilly is the first player to score in four straight Stanley Cup Final games since Wayne Gretzky in 1985.

That's about right for length of a rebuild. They moved on from the Pronger era and the 25-straight playoff appearances, went into the toilet, and it took them 11 years from when they drafted their franchise player.

Too bad people here don't have that kind of patience. :drink:

He's always struck me as the kind of guy his own teammates would hate and be embarrassed by, and now that choke-job lazy play on the Cup-winning goal will firmly put the goat horns on his rat-face.

And the Blues were so close to blowing it all up mid-season as BobMac said on TSN, as they were dead last in the league, getting ready to draft a top 4 overall pick.

Gonna deal off Alex Pietrangelo, Tarasenko, everyone was gonna be available lol, it's actually pretty insane the "flip the switch"
