DEEP BLUE SOMETHING OR OTHER
THE BLUES are deeper now, but are they better? It starts with the goaltending of Brian Elliott and Jaroslav Halak, with Jake Allen close by. In Alex Pietrangelo, Kevin Shattenkirk and Jay Bouwmeester, St. Louis boasts a great blueline. But is there enough scoring? Derek Roy was added to a nucleus of mostly second-line players – impressive, but not spectacular.
