It's always an honor and a pleasure when Hockey Blogging Overlord Greg Wyshynski from Yahoo's Puck Daddy asks you to write a eulogy for a NHL playoff team that has been eliminated. Last year, I did one for the San Jose Sharks. This year… the St. Louis Blues. You can read it exclusively over at Puck Daddy.

This will make much more sense once you've read the eulogy.
