This series will cover all thirty teams and go over the most important player, and player who’s performance most needs to improve to help the team succeed.

With the injury bug living full time in the Blues locker room consistency didn’t occur much for the Blues, it is hoped that this season they can find some. Rumors circulate that there is even a potential new owner interested in keeping the team where it is.

High Card:

When you score thirty goals twice you’re expected to keep it up. That’s what’s on the agenda for David Backes, well that and two other important things. One is stay healthy. The other is lead the team back to the post season. If the team is passably healthy his biggest challenge will be keeping people pointed in the right direction.

 

Wild Card:

Alex Pietrangelo had a breakout season. In the previous two years and 17 games he was a -9 with just three points. In 79 games last year the Blues were treated to his emergence as a legitimate high end defenseman. Eleven goals and forty three points with a swing all the way to +18 which was good for second on the team. Can he avoid a sophomore slump in what will be the fourth year and presumably second full season as a member of Missouri’s most famous pro sports team?
