The St. Louis Blues have been a very interesting team so far this season. They are currently 13-14-1 which is good for 27 standings points and sixth place in the Central Division.

They are right on the Wild Card bubble which is good for them but if they don't pick up their game, they will continue to fall out of it.

Their roster is not as good as it was when they won the Stanley Cup in 2019 but there are still some awesome players on the team.

After their most recent loss to the Detroit Red Wings, they decided to fire head coach Craig Berube. Berube was the man in charge when they won it all but they felt a move was needed.

The St. Louis Blues have a lot of issues going on with the team right now

GM Doug Armstrong still believes that his team can get something out of this season so he made the move following that ugly loss to the Wings.

One of the biggest reasons that this team has struggled in 2023-24 so far has been the play of Jordan Kyrou.

Kyrou is tied with Robert Thomas for being the highest-paid St. Louis Blues player in terms of AAV. He hasn't been worth much of that contract so far this year though as he only has five goals and 12 assists for 17 points in 28 games played.

There are plenty of players that would love to have that production but they don't make a fraction of what Kyrou makes. He was paid to provide a ton of offense and he hasn't done that.

Jordan Kyrou was asked about his relationship with Berube and his response was shocking. Honestly, it makes sense when you think about everything that has happened so far this year though. He made it clear that he didn't get along with his now-former bench boss.

That quote tells you everything you need to know. Berube was a tough coach and he demanded a lot from his players. Kyrou didn't seem to like it.

Kyrou better start performing now though. If he doesn't, it will be clear that it is more on him than the coach. His effort has been in question so this is the time to put all of that noise to bed. The Blues will have major problems if he can't get it done.

Their next game will take place on Thursday night when they take on the Ottawa Senators. Drew Bannister is the new interim head coach and he will make his debut in this game as well. Hopefully, the relationship between Bannister and Kyrou will be better so he can get back to playing well again.
