It looks as if the Blues will be going with a first line featuring Paul Stastny between Alexander Steen and Vladimir Tarasenko.
At least if things progress based on what the St. Louis coaching staff has seen so far. A very potent second line would feature David Backes and Jaden Schwartz with either Robby Fabrri or a healthy Jori Lehtera. Watch this situation going forward. Sep 26 - 1:35 PM

Paul Stastny notched two goals and added an assist in Thursday's 6-0 preseason win against Dallas.

He is tied with Vladimir Tarasenko for the Blues' preseason goal lead at three apiece. The duo is projected to start the regular season on the same line, which will help Stastny bounce back after a difficult opening year with St. Louis.

Paul Stastny feels he may have came back too soon from his early-season shoulder injury in 2014-15.

"First year on a new team, new contract, you feel like you're useless when you're not playing," he said. "As you get older, you realize maybe you should have taken a couple extra days and not worried about the outside pressure." Stastny feels much more sure of himself going into his second campaign with the Blues. He is slated to center Alexander Steen and Vladimir Tarasenko, which will greatly increase his chances of having a bounce back year.

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.

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.
