What a complete (Frank) this year is shaping up to be, but at least they have something in order for next season. It's just swell this year that our prospects will be split all over the place. Nothing says "getting the kids to gel" by having them spread across multiple shared teams and probably getting shafted on playing time.

Change their name to the Rivermen. That works for San Antonio too.

I live down here so this has me pumped. It will be fun to see the prospects up close more often. Used to love it when the Rivermen came to town. Haven't been able to catch the Wolves when they've been here.

Good news is that the flight from SAT to STL is only 2 hours, so it's not too bad for call-ups to home ice.

I'd like to see a Blues-Stars preseason game in SA, as long as they can keep the ice solid in mid-September...there are occasional issues with that down here...

So now what's this Tulsa thing?

*edit: looks like the Tulsa Oilers will be the Blues' ECHL affiliate for 2017-18.

It always cracked me up that the Alaska Aces played in the ECHL. Tulsa is getting a little closer, but the geography is still all franked up.

At least there is "coast" in Alaska. Definitely no such thing resembling a coast in Tulsa...
