I also think Derek Stepan will be an impact player his 1st year.

I feel pretty good about the offensive depth and look for McDonagh and Smith to assert themselves on the backline this year and I won't be shocked to see Gudmundson challenge Connelly for starting Goalie. It'll be a great year if the players jibe together.
My Blues tangled with the Maple Leafs twice during the preseason, and the vibe I got from Leafs message boards was that J. Mitchell was looking good for them as a 4th-line option. Take that for whatever it's worth.

Also, out of curiosity...did Travis Erstad's decision to play at UW-Stevens Point even register on the UW-Madison radar for the upcoming season? It caused a mini-furor among the Blues' faithful.
