My fellow LetsGoBlues-ers,
A few months ago, I wrote something titled "Addressing Concerns from St. Louis Bluesers." It was a post that focused on questions from the average, bandwagoner-type fan. Check it out here:

http://www.ksdk.com/story/sports/2013/1 ... s/3592613/

I'm looking to do another run with this series. So I would say that I am looking for questions not from the great hockey minds that you all have, but what you think someone who doesn't understand the team/game as well and just likes to complain about little things that they don't really understand would ask.

Post here and I will credit you in the post. Thanks in advance!

Why don't they just throw the puck into the goal with there hands?
How come no team has put a sumo wrestler in goal before?

Are 'The Golden Adventures of Brett Hull' based on a true story?

Why don't Goalies score more goals? Goal IS in their name.

Why do they call it a Hat Trick when they all wear helmets?

ANY question that has the players name repeatedly misspelled in it. ELLIOT as an example.

It's not so much the specifics of the ignorance that they are spewing, but it's the ignorance combined with the arrogant manner in which they say it.
If you didn't know any better, based on the ferociousness of the comments, you'd think they were a genius fan who is rightly outraged. One who has studied the game their entire lives...or more likely played at a high level and clearly knows the game. When they have obviously done neither and don't understand the game any better than a Dallas Stars fan.

I've found that Facebook comments are a complete train wreck of stupidity.
Twitter isn't far behind...it's saving grace is that you can only be so stupid in 140 characters.

But specific things that always bothered me...

- How much Pronger sucked.
- Fans who constantly yell shoot when on the PP.
- Dump and chase complainers.

What is offsides?
What is icing?
What's a powerplay?
Why don't the rest of the players that are just sitting there go out on the ice too?
How many innings are a hockey game?
What quarter is this?

Someone already said this, but I've been asked it before as well:
Why don't they just get the biggest, fattest guy in the world and make him the goalie? He wouldn't even have to move.

Are they called the Blues because of the color of their jerseys?

Why don't they make the puck bigger? I can't even see it most of the time.
Remember the glow puck?
What team is Gretzky on these days?
Has anyone ever actually tried to take their skate off and kill anybody like in Happy Gilmore?
Why does the goalie have special ice to stand on? It looks like the powerup spots from the old NBA Jam video games.
Does anyone utilize the knucklepuck?
Have the Blues ever won the Scooby Bowl?
Why doesn't he shoot it? SHOOOOOOOOOOOT!
It's a shootout, why did TJ Oshie only go once? Didn't they watch the Olympics?

If Wayne Gretzky's number #99 was retired by the NHL then why doesn't it hang in the rafters at every NHL building?
