St. Louis Should Host The World Junior Hockey Tournament - St. Louis Game Time
We haven't met, but I'm a big fan of the St. Louis Sports Commission. Your organization has been responsible for bringing to St. Louis some of the most well-known sporting events in the country. I have personally attended the Final Four, the Frozen Four, other NCAA basketball events and the MLB All Star Game -- all events your organization was influential in successfully hosting. I write to you urging St. Louis to compete to host another event that is possibly more famous outside this country that would bring many visitors to the city and put St. Louis on the map in international hockey circles.

Will The Winter Classic Come To St. Louis, And Does It Matter? - St. Louis Game Time
Is the shiny wearing off of the Classic? Well, when you have it every single year - and make it a game with no special significance other than the fact that it's outside - of course it is. It also doesn't help at all that all of the Classics except for the Wings/Hawks one have involved Eastern Conference teams, with just one from the Southeast Division. Also, since the Penguins and Flyers have both been two Classics, one can sense the variety fading away. Thirty teams in the league, and already two repeats? Blah. How to fix this? New markets!

G40 Oilers at Blues - Lowetide
St. Louis is a different team now that Hitchcock is in charge. He's very easy going right up until the first mistake. His (reported) style is similar to Billy Martin's baseball style. Legend has it that when Martin got to Oakland he had a meeting with his starting pitchers. They all agreed that they were going to throw strikes.
