St. Louis Blues season preview

10/2/2006 - NHL St. Louis Blues


WHERE THEY'LL FINISH
14th
In the new NHL, it doesn't take long to retool, but the Blues' toolbox is still a few hammers short. With an anemic offense, they'll finish fifth in the Central and 14th in the West.

BUZZ FACTORStock DownStock down. Fans stayed away in droves as the ownership flux left the Blues a lame-duck franchise. Checketts, Davidson et al, know they've got a lot of work to do in repairing the damage done through the lockout and last season's woeful offering.
