In 09-10, when Hinote was gone, the players in their 20's weren't ready to take ownership of the team and none of the Blues' real veterans were able to give the team a real identity. Tkachuk, Kariya, McDonald, Brewer. The only strong personality there is Tkachuk and he was notoriously moody and was clearly at the very end of his career. The team was just weird and out of focus.
Even though their depth and talent developed and they made good trades to put them back in contention, I think it's no mistake that the Blues are good now that they have added more good personalities.
When you have guys like Stewart, Oshie, and Reaves, I think the locker room will always be pretty chill.
