No. 16: St. Louis Blues

Previous: No. 15

Record:  24-20-5 (53 points)

Yeah, the Blues have lost four of their last five games. But, with his next win, head coach Ken Hitchcock will tie Al Arbour for third on the all-time wins list among NHL coaches at 782.  Um, the second winningest coach is Joel Quenneville of the Chicago Blackhawks.  That being said, I will never count these coaches out when it comes to winning in the playoffs.  The Blues just have to make it there again.
