So, for all intents and purposes, the Blues are set at defense (and, of course, in goaltending). How do the forward corps look? Hoo boy.
We'll probably see the T.J. Oshie - David Backes - David Perron line as the top line again. If Ken Hitchcock maintains his vision for the future, the second line will be Alexander Steen, Andy McDonald, and new Russian sensation Vladimir Tarasenko. Tarasenko's one of the most anticipated new additions to the Blues in years. No one is neutral on this guy -- his first goal wearing the Note will probably blow the roof off of the Scottrade Center. He's smart and should utilize McDonald's speed much like he's utilized Ilya Kovalchuk's speed during his time in the KHL.
