DC Sports Bog: T.J. Oshie surprises 5-year-old girl who was distraught that he wasn’t on the Blues anymore

Capitals fans might be happy that the team acquired T.J. Oshie from the Blues, but for one little girl, the trade came as heartbreaking news. Word that Oshie wouldn’t play for St. Louis anymore sent 5-year-old Libby Lu into a bawling fit of despair, so her parents did the only sensible thing in this day and age: They filmed her tearful moment and uploaded the footage to YouTube.Read full article >>

Bernie Miklasz Is Through With T.J. Oshie

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch columnist veritably kicks T.J. Oshie in the nuts before he heads to Washington in Thursday's trade. When we last heard from St. Louis Post-Dispatch sports columnist Bernie Miklasz--at least as it regards to the Blues--he was wondering why the Blues front-office would dare try to find a coach better than Ken Hitchcock. It's so unfair! Trying to get rid of a guy that's failed four times! WHY WOULD SOMEONE WANT TO DO SUCH A THING?!?! With that as a backdrop, you could see this morning's column coming. As we know, St. Louis heart-throb forward T.J. Oshie was traded...

T.J. Oshie: By the Numbers

The newest Capital is a good upgrade in Washington's top six. For the second day in a row, the Caps made a late move, this time acquiring forward T.J. Oshie from St. Louis for Troy Brouwer, prospect goalie Pheonix Copley, and a third-round pick. Like Justin Williams, Oshie is a good player, plain and simple. He's fairly productive in the regular season, averaging about 20 goals and 55-60 points per 82 games each season of his career—and is one of the best in the business in the shootout, too. He plays enough of a hard, two-way game to have merited plenty of minutes from Ken Hitchcock on a...

Friday Sharks Links: Paul Martin wants to buy everyone in San Jose his jersey

Plus more on the hiring of Bob Boughner and Johan Hedberg, Mr. Oshie is going to Washington and further fallout from Wednesday's Phil Kessel trade.

Capitals stay busy, acquire T.J. Oshie from St. Louis in three-player deal

He had tried to avoid the rumors, spending time away from hockey after another early postseason exit. But if the ambient noise didn’t reach T.J. Oshie, text messages from his friends certainly did. At first, he thought the St. Louis Blues might have traded him last weekend at the NHL draft, but when that passed he reconsidered. Maybe the 28-year-old winger would stay put, in the city of the team that drafted him a decade ago. Maybe Oshie would, as he believed last summer, retire there, too.Read full article >>

Blues Looking To Trade Backes, Berglund, Or Oshie?

Everyone has their price. At the end of May, Doug Armstrong took the opportunity to break the Blues down into two cores: old guys and young guys. Vladimir Tarasenko, Jaden Schwartz, Kevin Shattenkirk, and Alex Pietrangelo fall into the young guys. The Blues will be built around that core - that's who the future belongs to. Which leaves the aging core of David Backes, Patrik Berglund, T.J. Oshie, and Alexander Steen (among others) up for discussion. It's taken a few weeks since Armstrong's division of the team comments, but finally whispers are getting out that perhaps Armstrong is open to...
