I bet if you checked out the St Louis board at the beginning of last year, they were saying the same thing. David Backes is overrated and nothing more than a 3rd line checker. Tj Oshie will never put it together. We got robbed in both the Halak and Johnson trade. David Perron's career is over. Then they fired their coach and hired Hitch. Now look at them. True the Flyers don't have Piertangelo but St Louis doesn't have Giroux. I don't see how a talented roster of young players that was gushed over by the pundits last year as an embarrassment of riches become 3rd line grinders in seven games this year.
