The St. Louis Blues are obviously based in St. Louis, Missouri. The team is a member of the NHL’s Central Division. Though most people assume that the name ‘Blues’ probably refers to the music genre but in fact, it’s named after W.C. Handy’s song “Saint Louis Blues.” All home games for the Blues are played at the Scottrade Center with a 19,150 person seating capacity. The St. Louis Blues was formed in 1967 as the NHLs expansion team during the first expansion from the original six teams to twelve. The Blues may have had its ups and downs but being the oldest team to have not won a Stanley Cup does tend to turn off many potential fans who would otherwise be betting on their home team. One of the biggest challenges for the team is trying to retain their young players and probably the same goes for keeping millennial fans interested in the team. The Blues are in a division with the Blackhawks, Avalanche, Minnesota Wild, Nashville Predators, Stars and the Winnipeg Jets.
