    St louis should feel like they won the lottery lol. Chicago didnt get a goalie, Lidstrom is gone, Nash is gone, Suter is gone, But can Halak and Elliot do what they did last year?

      If you watched the Blues last year, Halak and Elliot didn’t have to do much. The team D is just stifling, they push everything to the outside, the shots they face are weak. Coached so well with everyone buying in. The Blues are going to be a problem.
