St. Louis Blues head into the 2013/2014 season off the back of a decent season last, when they finished fourth in the west division, and gave the Los Angeles Kings a proper fight before they lost 4-2 in the playoff series.
2013 St Louis Blues prospects
During the off season, it has been a period of tweaking their team rather than making wholesale changes Derek Roy, Magnus Paajarvi and maxim Lapierre have all joined while Andy MacDonald, Jamie Langenbrunner and David Perron have left as they strive to improve on an attack line that did not score as many points as they should have last season. They only scored around 2.58 goals per game last season, which was a dismal 17th overall in the league. They will be hoping that marquee signing Derek Roy can shoulder some or most of the goal scoring burden, to help them fight for a deeper playoff push than just first round.
Someone who will be hoping to assist Roy in scoring is Vladimir Tarasenko. Sidelined for a long period last season by a troublesome concussion, he will hope to stay fit and regain his form that saw him score five goals in ten opening games last season.
They will also need their goaltender, Brian Elliot, to improve his form in goal too, because doubts continue to be had over the NHL quality or lack of for his main understudy, Jake Allen. Defence was never a problem for St Louis Blues last season, with Barret Jackman and Jordan Leopold still among their ranks, another solid performance is expected in the goals against column.
St. Louis Blues are a very solid team, with a superb defence, many solid players and experience in getting the points needed. They are in a relatively weak division; hence they should easily finish with enough wins to secure a playoff position. They will be hoping for a kinder draw this time round, but they are definitely stronger this time round should they meet the Kings again. However, a title seems to be still out of reach for the Blues. They still lack a bit of stardust.
