The Resume

Why they might be annoying:

    It took them 52 years to win their first Stanley Cup championship.
    They dealt with financial problems throughout the mid 1970's.
    Head coach Mike Keenan's tough style of coaching rubbed many players the wrong way, which would eventually lead to All-Stars Brendan Shanahan and Bret Hull's ousting from the team.
    Wayne Gretzky's tenure with them was considered a let down by some because they did not win a Stanley Cup.
    Mike Keenan was fired after the 1995-96 season, a little while after Wayne Gretzky signed with the New York Rangers.

Why they might not be annoying:

    They are named after the St. Louis blues scene.
    They were one of the six NHL expansion teams of 1967.
    Scotty Bowman used to be their coach.
    They beat the Los Angeles Kings and Minnesota North Stars in the first two rounds of the playoffs in their inaugural season.
    Jack Buck used to call their games.
    At one point in time, Brett Hull, Adam Oates, Brendan Shanahan, Scott Stevens, Al MacInnis and Curtis Joseph were all playing for the Blues.
    They made Laura Branigan's 'Gloria' popular again.
