Seeing so many great players, great coaches, great teams come through here and never get close. I don't even think this can compare to how a couple of baseball teams broke their "curses". I never felt like we were cursed, and I never heard anybody use that term. Game 6 is how my entire life of being a Blues fan felt like... Strong play, incredibly high effort and will but just a constant barrage of misfortune. It was like no matter how hard we pushed we were just going to be left disappointed.
Yeah, I don't think non-hockey fans, or even casual NHL fans really understand the situation with the Blues over the years. "Cubs of hockey", no way. The Cubs would go decades between playoff appearances. The Blues make the playoffs nearly every single year! 42 of 51 seasons (82%). Always good, sometimes even great, and somehow fall painfully short every year. Lucy always pulling that damn football away.

Add in the insanity of the 80's and early 90's. Team almost moves to Saskatoon. Doesn't even send a representative to the 1983 draft. The whole Scott Stevens / Brendan Shannahan debacle--who else does that happen to? Then the first act of the Wal-Mart family [expletive] St. Louis.

All water under the bridge now. The monkey's off our backs. Feels...nice.

Not to mention the Keenan era of alienating or trading away some of the most beloved players in franchise history.

[expletive] right, Steener.

He's one of the guys I'm happiest for. He's gone from 4th line on a non-contending Blues roster (the McSteenbeen line) to a top 6 forward on contending teams, now graciously back to 4th liner on a Cup winner. True professional through it all.
