Last season The Blues won their division, were second in conference, and finished one point behind the best record in The NHL with several players not playing at the "amazing Level". Why should they drop in achievement with 3 of their less essential players playing non-amazing, but, with ALL the others (including Tarasenko, Schwartz, Berglund, Oshie, Perron, McDonald, Steen, Pietrangelo, Shattenkirk, Halak, Cole, Jackman, Polak, Russell, Sobotka, Nichol, Reaves and even Woywitka) playing "amazing"? Plus, they are a young team with most players not near their upside potential, who should be better each year with more experience and maturity, AND, such a young team would have an advantage over older teams (with more veterans above 30), in withstanding the tough compressed schedule, and requiring less rest.
