The St. Louis Blues have plenty of big names that everybody loved. Sometimes we end up with a soft spot for the guy nobody’s heard of or was barely here.
The St. Louis Blues might not have the length of history of some franchises, but they’ve got plenty of all-time greats. Whether it’s Brett Hull, Bernie Federko, Chris Pronger, Al MacInnis or any number of fantastic players, those are the names we all remember and loved.
However, even the lesser known players get some love too, though it might be by fewer people. There have always been guys that were barely in St. Louis that still left their mark on individual fans.
Sometimes you would see a jersey walking around the St. Louis Arena or Scottrade Center (now Enterprise Center) and wonder why in the world they bought that. It was a name that just kind of puzzled you as to why anyone would want that.
Adding interest to it, it was usually a name that they had to get custom made. They weren’t selling too many in the souvenir shops.
Even though we all likely judged that person, the truth is we all have our odd favorites. Sometimes it’s a guy that was barely here long enough for them to stitch the name plate on the jersey.
Maybe it’s a player that barely scored any goals, but still had an impact. Maybe there’s any number of reasons a person might like a certain player.
But, it got me thinking about who mine were. I couldn’t pick just one, so I figured I’d list a few.
