They were my prediction to win the west this year. Their team is so strong top to bottom. Them and Boston is the finals I predict and would actually love to see. Shattenkirk is a very good player as well. Didn't look to get too much ice time today (I could be wrong though), but he's a good guy to fall back on if needed to step up.
Blues vs Bruins is something I can get behind, and cheer on the Blues...I've been to St.Louis a handful of times; really nice folks, and great hockey fans (and unlike Chicago you can wear your Red Wings gear, and not be threatened)...If there's a franchise out there along with a fan base that deserves to have a shot at winning the Cup - I'm thinking the Blues would be at, or near the top of that list.
