Default Let's Go Blues! Play Gloria!

Let's see some Blue's stuff!

Here are all but two St. Louis Blues press/media guides from their initial season of 1967-68 through 2007-08. Missing 2001-02 and 2004-05.

So cool! Nice to see a Blues fan, that is quite a collection. I actually gifted one of those to my brother-in-law, a St. Louis native and big Blues fan. I only morphed into a Blues fan after going to St. Louis from '92 thru '99 to see Kurri (and that Gretzky guy) every time they came into town, so I've only been on board for just under twenty years. Let's hope we get to hear Gloria four more times. Let's Go Blues!

In all my years watching hockey, I, for some reason, was never a Blues fan but I am sure hoping this year they can beat the Bruins and win Sir Stanley.

Boston is definitely a good team but 1 game is not conclusive that they are going to win.

You are a right thinking guy, Dale! After the third game against the Sharks, I had my doubts that they would win another game. I was way wrong. They are a resilient group and are far from done. (Am I setting myself up for the Blues to drop me on my head again?)

Haha, thanks, nice to know I sneak in. It's a great hockey town, I hope they can make it happen. And I agree with "irv", Boston certainly dominated game 1, but we have already seen the Blues play like that for a couple of stretches in these playoffs and bounce back, so still hopeful. Boston may indeed win it, but still a long way to go in the series and nobody wins it with one great game.

Nice collection of media guides, Jerry G.
I was honored to be friends for several years with Seth Martin, the goaltender pictured on the cover of the 1967-68 guide. He shared the Blues' first-year netminding duties with Glenn Hall after a stellar international career that saw him play in two Olympics and lead the Trail Smoke Eaters to the 1961 world championship. Seth's lone NHL shutout came on Christmas Day 1967, a 1-0 victory over the Minnesota North Stars. The man in the North Stars net was Cesare Maniago, a Trail native whom Martin had faced dozens of times in the amateur ranks.

Rangers fan here who is rooting for the Blues since my oldest and dearest friend is a St. Louis native and has suffered long enough. Went to games with him at the old Checkerdome back in the mid-70s. Was quite a place. Repped the Blues at the hockey bar Monday night with the only St. Louis-related items I have, my Brownies cap, and Satchel Paige tee. Wasn't enough. #goBlues

I remember before that first season, that Seth Martin was the #1 hyped player coming in. As you stated, he had tremendous success as an amateur. The word was that he previously didn't want to give up amateur status and play in the minor leagues. With the Blues, he would instantly become an NHL starter. Didn't work out as planned. He only played 30 games. I don't remember why. Do you know, Murr?
