Not saying they're a dynasty in the making, but I wouldn't be at all shocked to see them do damage, as we've seen teams inferior to them getting hot at the right moment. Plus, doesn't hurt that they probably get to smack around one of the also-plays teams in the Central in the first round next playoffs, so that doesn't hurt their odds of advancing either. They're also the type of team I could see taking advantage of someone better being bit by the injury bug or having an off-night.

Again, they're not favorites, but they're more than good enough that you shouldn't just assume that we'll be able to cakewalk over them.
Here is the Hawks record vs the Blues the last 4 seasons

15-7-1 and one of those losses was the last game of last year where the Hawks didn't dress their starters so really 15-6-1. I'll assume we'll cakewalk them until they prove otherwise.
