I still think St Louis has the best D group in the league.

The goaltending job is Elliot's now. Remains to be seen whether or not he's a legit starter.

This is a tough game. Home opener for the Blues. Not expecting a win here, but a tough fought game.

Really tough way to open the season. I'm excited to get a look at the final lines AV decides on, and whether or not Hayes will be in the lineup if he's healthy by then.

In St. Louis for their home opener... yikes

Looking for a good fight from our guys.

I expect us to get the W probably in OT or SO blues will underestimate us even tho its the home opener for them. LGR

Definitely a tough start to the season. Should be good to be tested this early though.

It's the first game of the season and they are at home. I really don't think they are looking past us. A point from this game is a success imo.

Hate the Blues. They have owned us for the past 5 years.

If the Rangers lose, it will be the fault of the refs.

Just preparing for the post game thread.

Nope.

Their most important players are almost all playoff chokers. Until that's fixed, they'll always bow out early.

I really can't remember the last time we beat them.

As seen, we have the most trouble with the big teams that skate well (Kings, Bruins, Sharks, Ducks, and the Blues). But it's a whole new season, so let's start out strong.

I'm guessing a narrow loss, but I won't be shocked if we beat them on penalties with Zucc and the King doing their job.

As long as we get to the playoff again I don't mind if the team needs time to gel, I just hope it doesn't take 7-8 games before the lines start clicking. We need the "first" line of BrassZucc???? to play well from the get go.

We had a chance to beat them last year, were it not for the combined effort of Derek Dorsett and Marty Biron

With LA losing Willie Mitchell, I agree.
