Paul Stastny felt more comfortable as a leader with the Blues as the season progressed.
"By the end of the year I started speaking up. The first year with a new team, you kind of fly under the radar and be quiet. But as you get older you have to speak up," he said. "You want to win. If you see something go wrong, you're not going to sit there and not say anything. (Leadership), it's another attribute and ability that you're good at, and feel like you're not being used for it and kind of hindering yourself and not being involved as much as you should be. But at same time when you come to a new team, especially a team that's good and has been built from the bottom, they already have their leaders." He is expected to take on a larger role in his second season with St. Louis. Aug 11 - 7:07 PM

St. Louis Blues GM Doug Armstrong wants to see more from Paul Stastny going forward.

"Paul Stastny needs to be a bigger part of our group," Armstrong told Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman. "He’s our highest-paid player, we need him to be a bigger and better part of our team." Stastny had just 16 goals and 46 points in 74 games and he had just one goal in six postseason games in 2014-15.
May 31 - 1:53 PM

Paul Stastny scored the game-winner in the third period to help St. Louis down Chicago 2-1 on Thursday night and clinch the Central Division title.

It was Stastny's 46th point in 73 games this season and his first in a week. The 29-year-old notched 10 points in seven playoff games last season, and will be a solid playoff pool option if you believe in the Blues.
Apr 10 - 1:37 AM

Paul Stastny had his potential game-tying goal denied after being called for slashing during Tuesday's 1-0 loss to the Jets.

Stastny had a good game otherwise, contributing two shots, three blocks, while winning 53% of his draws in nearly 20 minutes of ice time. He now has 15 goals, 45 points, and 40 PIMs over 72 games this season.
Apr 8 - 1:43 AM

Paul Stastny is projected to stay on the top line with Jaden Schwartz and T.J. Oshie on Tuesday night.

He has generated nine points in his last 17 games to give him a total of 45 on the season. David Backes is expected to stick with Dmitrij Jaskin and Patrik Berglund on the second unit.
Apr 7 - 4:15 PM

Paul Stastny contributed to both Blues goals in their 2-1 win over the Oilers on Saturday night.

Stastny assisted on Dmitrij Jaskin’s first-period goal and scored his own in the third period. His first season in St. Louis has not exactly gone as planned, with 12 goals and 36 points this season. The goal was his first since Feb. 12, a span of six without one. Patrik Berglund and Ian Cole got the other helpers.
Mar 1 - 12:53 AM

Coach Ken Hitchcock is thinking about moving Paul Stastny to the second line between Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Tarasenko.

That would place Jori Lehtera with Dmitrij Jaskin and Patrik Berglund. "We're looking at maybe flipping Lehtera and Stastny and see how that looks," Hitchcock said. "We haven't had the chemistry that we expect at times and it may be the time now to see if we can get some new energy and those two lines might work for us."
Feb 17 - 11:40 AM

Paul Stastny scored the only goal for St. Louis as the Blues suffered a 7-1 slaughter at the hands of the Blue Jackets in Columbus Friday night.

The Blues, 34-14-4 this season, were 12-0-1 in its previous 13 games. "It was one of those games tonight," St. Louis forward Alexander Steen said. "Nothing went our way. We didn't play hard enough or smart enough. There's not much to say. We weren't good enough. It's just a bad game." Stastny's goal, scored on a second-period power play, was his 10th of the season.
Feb 6 - 11:21 PM

Paul Stastny has registered 11 points in his past eight games.

That total has nearly matched the 13 points he accounted for during his first 26 contests this campaign. "When I'm out there, I've got more confidence," said Stastny, who has seen his ice time increase lately as well. "You get in the groove of the game. I think early on, maybe you have to get the coach’s trust or (get him) comfortable with different situations. It's a long season, and I knew that from the get-go. You just have to continue proving yourself." Coach Ken Hitchcock said he noticed that the more Stastny plays, the better he plays so the team has been more active at getting him out on the ice.
Jan 13 - 11:07 AM

Paul Stastny notched a goal and a helper in Thursday's 7-2 blowout win against San Jose.

His power-play tally late in the first period held up as the game winner. Stastny has potted the game-winning goal in two straight contests and he's picked up seven points during a four-game scoring streak.
Jan 9 - 11:54 AM

Paul Stastny had two assists in the St. Louis Blues' 3-0 shutout of the visiting Colorado Avalanche Monday night.

They were his first points against his former team since signing with the Blues as a free agent last summer. Stastny produced his eighth and ninth assists of the season on second-period goals by Dmitrij Jaskin, his third of the season, and Chris Butler, his first. Vladimir Tarasenko scored the Blues' third goal in the third period. Tarasenko is having a fabulous season and now has 22 goals.

Paul Stastny was booed in his return to Denver on Saturday night.

Stastny signed with the Blues as a free agent last summer, and Avs fans didn't take too kindly to him leaving. Stastny was booed every time he touched the puck. The 28-year-old has just seven goals and 12 points this season, but he has managed to score five points in his last five games.

Paul Stastny will face his former Avalanche teammates for the first time in Denver since he signed on as a free agent with the Blues this past summer.

It is hard to say what kind of a reaction Stastny will get. We imagine there will be some sort of video tribute during which Avalanche fans will likey cheer Stastny but once the game starts we suspect there will be plenty of boos. If you think players respond well in this sort of situation, then make sure you have Stastny active Saturday night.

Paul Stastny skated with David Backes and T.J. Oshie at Wednesday's practice.

Stastny has a goal and an assist in his past two games after a four-game pointless skid. Oshie has struggled mightily this season and Backes hasn't been lighting it up either. It may be wishful thinking to hope that they will rediscover their respective games together, but they all have the talent to turn things around so it's possible.
Thu, Nov 27, 2014 12:30:00 PM

Paul Stastny was a dismal minus-3 in the Blues' 4-1 loss to the Habs on Thursday night.

The 28-year-old free agent signing has just one point in his previous nine games, a sharp decline from the four points he scored in the season's first two games. Stastny should find more success in the coming weeks on the high-powered Blues offense, but is clearly not on track to meet the expectations the Blues and fantasy owners hoped for.
