ST. LOUIS (KMOX) –  A group led by St. Louis Blues minority owner Tom Stillman has signed a purchase agreement to buy the club, according to a report posted on

The deal must still be authorized by the National Hockey League, a process that could take weeks to complete.

The move comes less than a month after the NHL terminated a purchase agreement between the Blues and Matthew Hulsizer, a Chicago businessman.

The total purchase price including the lease on the Scottrade Center and an owning interest in the Peabody Opera House is expected to top $130 million.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported several months ago that former Blues standout Brett Hull has also shown interest in joining Stillman’s investment group.

    The opera house is ‘given away’ for a nickel on a dime to save a money-losing hockey team. This is the ‘shame’ and the failure of St. Louis. .. The Kiel Killers move back in on the peoples’ money, suck out the opera house revenue, and protect the Fox. . I guess the only saving grace is the New York and Chicago characters of the picture.
