St Louis Blues Claim BJ Crombeen

by Kristine

I’m sure you’ve all heard by now, but the St. Louis Blues have claimed BJ Crombeen off waivers. They must now keep him on their active roster; if they put him back on waivers, the Stars Brass will be able to reclaim him if they want to. In the meantime, James Neal is expected to be called back up from the Moose and will probably be at practice in Frisco tomorrow.

Also, apparently poor Lehtinen has a “new” issue and is being evaluated. Officially he’s still a possibility for Thursday, but I’m going to put my money on him not playing.

Lastly, the Stars unveiled their third jersey today, which Puck Daddy immediately – and correctly – labeled boring. The design is a white version of the black home jersey, with green and gold stripes, letters, and numbers. Could our jersey designers be any lazier? They will be debuting them at our next two home games. So will every player for both teams will be wearing white on Thursday and Saturday?

My whole Stars world is being turned upside down this week! Boucher gone, Sydor back, Crombeen gone, Neal back, Lehts possibly injured again. What next?

UPDATE: The Stars have officially announced that Crombeen has been claimed and Neal has been recalled.

Also thanks to Amy and Jen for pointing out that the other team will wear their home darks. I hadn’t thought of that because, well, it’s moronic that they have to. Sorry Stars Brass. Not a big fan of the home/away mashup you dialed in.

  1. I don’t like the new jerseys either… but then again, I didn’t like the black jerseys the first time they announced them before last season. Not everyone will be wearing white. Chicago and Anaheim will probably be asked to wear their dark home jerseys.

  2. Even if they do, that’s silly. They shouldn’t have to accommodate us just because our thirds are basically a re-warmed version of our whites. :\

  3. I agree, I’m not a big fan of the third jerseys at all. I wish they would have gone with a green theme again.

    Before the jersey home/away color switch, most of the third jerseys were dark colors, so the home team wore dark and the away team wore their home whites.

    The sad is that I’ve really liked all the other 3rd jerseys that have been unveiled so far this season… and the Stars jersey designers just had to crap all over them

  4. lol both teams won’t be in white, the visiting teams when we’re home will wear their home darks.

  5. And i’d much rather this 3rd jersey than another mooterus.

  6. My whole Stars world is being turned upside down this week! Boucher gone, Sydor back, Crombeen gone, Neal back, Lehts possibly injured again. What next?

    This is what I’m terrified of…what is worse that can happen to the team. ::shudders::

  7. Well Caitlin, looks like we now know the worst thing that can happen… 😦
