The feature story this week is about the greatest St. Louis Blue of all-time: Brett Hull. The Hall-of-Famer is back in the role of Executive Vice President and we catch up with him to find out what he's doing and how he plans to help the Blues' bottom line.
Before that, however, we look back at Hull's illustrious playing -- and partying -- career during his time in St. Louis, with some car-stealing, bar-fighting drinking tales told by former teammates Kelly Chase and Garth Butcher.
We also look at Hull's post-playing career, which has included stints as a commentator at NBC and as the "Ambassador of Fun" for the Dallas Stars.
Hull was also a co-general manager for the Stars, but that came to an end soon after he signed bad-boy winger Sean Avery who would go on to say some things that got him in a lot of trouble.
But now, Hull is back where his legendary status began and although the team is winning, it still needs sponsors and season ticket holders. That's where Hull comes in. The hockey legend saves Blues hockey when he became a bonafide celebrity in the 90's. Can he do it again without putting the puck in the net?
