No. 12 – St Louis Blues

Previous: No. 9

The Blues started this season hot, winning their first four games. But they’ve since lost their last two to the Panthers and Lightning.  Nobody thought the Blues would have this much success early considering the number of players on injury reserve, but nonetheless the Blues are moving forward.  Until something changes, the Blues will be a heavily defensive team that relies on guys like Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Tarasenko to carry the offensive load.  That might not be enough to get them out of the Central this year, but they always seem to find a way.
