If there was a team to be singing the blues, appropriately enough, the St. Louis Blues would be singing the loudest. Founded as part of the original 1967 NHL expansion, the St. Louis Blues are mired in an ongoing Stanley Cup drought, still searching for its first NHL title. Despite not being the most winningest team, the Blues do have devoted fans, so it is important to book St. Louis Blues parking spaces in advance, or else Scottrade Center parking spaces will be hard to come by.
Although the Blues havenâ€™t won the Stanley Cup yet, it doesnâ€™t mean they havenâ€™t tried. When they were formed in 1967, they were one of only 12 teams in the NHL. Due to the limit, the playoffs at the time were structured to have one of the expansion teams get to the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Due to this stipulation, the Blues made the postseason from â€˜68-â€™70, getting swept three times. As a result of the playoffs format changing, this has not happened since.
Things worsened for the team in the 1970s, as in-game performance went south and employees were cut. The Blues were so desperate for cash that the team sold itself to Ralston Purina (of petfood fame). They improved slightly in the regular season, but were stuck in a purgatory of disappointing playoff games. Purina lost money as the team owner, and in 1983 the company essentially abandoned the team to the league. The Blues almost folded until they were saved at the last minute by Harry Ornest, who bought the team.
The Blues had Wayne Gretzky for a short period of time, but due to a lack of chemistry, he left within a season. Despite their problems, the team had a long playoffs streak, which lasted from â€˜80 to â€˜04, but this ended the season after the lockout.
