Blues' Message To Fans Regarding Lockout

On Sunday, the St. Louis Blues organization released a statement regarding the state of hockey and more particularly that of the Blues. Here is their take on the lockout, and the message Blues management is giving to the great St. Louis fans.

As you are aware, the National Hockey League and NHL Players’ Association have not yet reached agreement on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Because of this development, the opening of the Blues’ training camp may be delayed and some of our games could be postponed or cancelled.

The St. Louis Blues remain hopeful that a new agreement will be reached as soon as possible and that we will be back on the ice soon. We will be in contact with our season ticket holders, suite holders, and sponsors with plans and options that will be available in the event that games are postponed or cancelled. Single game ticket buyers may keep their tickets or go to the point of purchase for a refund.

The Blues appreciate your patience and loyalty. We value your support and your passion for the Blues, and we look forward to seeing you at Scottrade Center once a new CBA is in place.

Whether or not you believe that a new CBA will be reached soon, or if the Blues ownership is doing everything it can to get the season started, it is definitely a good sign that management is interacting with the fans.
