08:22 AM ET 08.20 | Hands of stone, right? Blues Hall of Famers Bernie Federko and Al MacInnis will have some company in front of Scottrade Center in October. The club announced today that a third statue, honoring legendary Blues goal-scorer Brett Hull, will be unveiled prior to the team's season opener Oct. 9. Last season, the Blues unveiled MacInnis' statue in front of Scottrade Center and also moved Federko's statue outdoors, after it had been on display inside the arena for several years.

Hull to be given statue in St. Louis! Cool, what's it going to be of? How much they charging him, as that is to much of an honor to just get!!!! Is it a statue of a note?

Very cool. It's deserved. Brett whined too much in St. Louis at times, but he was primarily responsible for rejuvenating hockey in St Louis in the late '80s and early '90's.

Well I've milked the media in Dal, and Det, so.............let's eat up some self made publicity in St Louis, as I almost forgot about taking up space in their paper too, with stuff that doesn't concern running a consistent team. " Going to try and get Avery back!" says Hull, after removing foot from arse, then putting it right back in his mouth!

I gotta go to bed!!! I'm too tired to be objective and pleasant!!!!!

No more than Cujo? Where is his statue?

Does he qualify for a statue? I don't know but at least he's not a wife-beater like dear old dad.

Imagine, the King of St. Louise.

Good thing he too fat to be a Flame.

Preferably they'll have it hanging from highest point of the Gateway Arch and all visitors are given a stick to take a wack at it like a pinata.

Well they already named the crease after him in Dallas... BA-ZING!

To Hank Swamp and Canuck...Is your whole province on fire. People in Alberta are told to stay indoors because of all the smoke coming from the fires in B.C. You can't see across the street because of the smoke. One good thing it's got the mosqitos under control. Seriously best of luck getting those fires under control.

When it starts whipping through the "green" belt go outside and breathe deeply.

It's pretty severe here. I work in the forest industry and we are down for heat. Everything is tinder dry. But the Island is pretty much fire free, unlike the interior.

My yard around my house is an urban green belt on about an acre. My creek running through is but a trickle and if the trees ever caught fire I'd lose my house as well.

So when this lummox walks past with his mutt the other day and tosses his smoldering butt in the street I accosted him. Everything is so dry even the dust might burn and it would take nothing for a spark to jump the sidewalk and turn my place into cinders in a NY Minute.

When I said "Hey man, don't do that. At least step on it." he looks at me like I'm from Mars.

His reply was, "I guess I'll walk my dog somewhere else where their aren't a**holes..."

I was shocked.

True that. I went for my run this morning and i swear i took in as much second hand smoke as when i used to sit on Grannies lap driving up to Gull Lake as a little feller.Someone crank up those wind turbines down south and ship the smoke up to my poor misguided Edmonton Brethren.

Sorry to hear about the conditions thats not typical weather for the Island at all. Watch for sparks we don't want to see any damage to those cars. My neice and her family are visiting us from Maple Ridge and she says everthing is brown. Pretty unusual for an area that invented green. As for the smoker get a name or plate number and we'll take of him and his dog;)

I keep my lawn and gardens green with daily watering. But the property I have is too big to keep everything green, and 100' firs can be thirsty.

Port Alberni is a real hot spot. Located at the head of a fjord and in a valley. Many times we are the hot spot in all of Canuckistan. Last Sunday was 41.... Brutally hot.

And aside to cars, in the last month I bet I've spent $6-$7K on car repairs of various items like clutch, A/C, tires, paint job on our Taurus SHO and TBird SuperCoupe. Since both are 1995 or older, I wouldn't even get $4K in insurance for them total were they to be caught up in a wild fire. And all it would take is a spark.

I can see Hull getting a statue in St. Louis but MacInnis? I guess he'll always be a Flame to me.

That's hot!! I'm sure VanDerzam is blaming the weather on the harmonized tax.

That it is.

And that he probably is!

We have forest fires? And here all along I thought the smoke was coming from Hank's recent harvest.

I remember those kinds of car rides. LOL. BTW if the smoke is making over the Rockies and all the way to Edmonton and Calgary does that mean that Alberta sucks?

This will be a popular spot for tourists from Buffalo.

more like Monty Python-B.C. is currently farting in our general direction. Those car rides would get everyone in jail now.My grandpa would have a Calgary export beer bottle nestled comfortably en-crotch for the whole ride up the highway.Both grand parents puffing away in the 29 foot long 4 door sedan.We had myself and 4 cousins Gran and gramps and a dog all mashed inside eating Dads cookies and never once considering seatbelts.My kids travel with us now locked in with straps and airbags and more electronic entertainment in each of there possession then the entire wiring system in Gramps big Chevy boat :-)

Dejavu my freind. I remember those trips to the lake with my family. Dad driving and wearing a hat that he would be to embarrassed to wear any place but the lake and smoking a cigar as long as your gramps car. Mom wearing sunglasses that were about as outlandish as the fins on the 60 Chrysler that we made the trips in. Of course there were the required rum stops at all the campgrounds leading to the cabin. Seems so long ago....similar to the Flames winning their only Stanley Cup :-)

awesome 1 i forgot about the campground stops. My Grandpa cleverly labelled them bathroom stops.We were obliviously young and failed to notice that while we used the nasty out houses Grand parents and following assorted Unlces etc. would always have to go check the coolers in the trunk.

Loved the trips with my grandparents. Grandpa had a '56 Merc truck that I would like to ride in the back in. (try that now) If he had the camper on it I rode up with my feet on the box of beer that he would open from the bottom so that if you looked at it looked like an unopened case. Of course, the cab would smell like an Octoberfest carpet but he thought he fooling somebody. He also smoked roll your owns so he taught me how do that so I could roll them for him while he was driving. That skill came in quite handy later in life. :-)
