As a 4-seed they could get anybody. But yeah, it's pretty much Detroit w/o home ice that's the biggest worry, followed by Nashville (regardless of home ice as neither has a particular home ice edge even historically). Not saying the other teams would be easy, as the only really easy playoff matchup you could ever see a mile away was the one against the Blackhawks in 2002. But the Blues would have legitimate confidence against every other team.
They will have confidence even against Nashville, but Nashville will also have confidence against them. The rest of the West would want to avoid the Blues if possible.
Phoenix, guys. Keep an eye on Phoenix. They could climb into the discussion about 5th if Nashville stumbles. Calgary has a longshot chance too.
The Blues would have an easy time with either Phoenix or Calgary. But, I doubt if either of those flawed teams can really pass Nashville. Maybe a super hot streak will push them over the top. We'll have to hope for that.
