The Sports Hub: Jeremy Rutherford & Barret Jackman

Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has been covering the slow process of the St. Louis Blues being sold over the past year. With Tuesday’s news of Matthew Hulsizer having his purchase agreement being eliminated by the NHL, minority owner Tom Stillman now has the opportunity to take control. Jeremy talks with Scott Warmann about what took place plus what can be expected in the near future.

The Blues have not lost in regulation in back-to-back games since head coach Ken Hitchcock took over. They broke a 3-game skid on Tuesday night with a 4-1 win over the Phoenix Coyotes. Defenseman Barret Jackman, who came very close to breaking a scoring drought in the victory, joins Scott and Chris Kerber for a post game chat.

    Wrong. No one has been covering this process, especially the Post. .
    Once again. A St. Louis group will purchase the Blues only because they can at least break even by sucking money out of the opera house. My guess is $7 million a year. Checketts’ sell price is based on how deeply he is in debt and not on the value of the team. he couldn’t get away with tossing in the opera house and jacking the price to $180 million. Tough bananas. Suck it up Dave, take your loss, and go back to New York. And don’t take anything more out of the Opera House. You took its history, its honor, its mission, you took its strength.

    The sale may be a ‘slow process’ but they are moving Kiel Opera House money
    to the back of the block at lightening speed. A lot of people are getting ‘financial’ well on its broad shoulders. But even broad shoulders can be bent down and can break, as they broke them before.
