Center Steve Ott, the Blues most recent forward acquisition, seems hopeful to be on a playoff bound team. A competitive playoff bound team, to boot.
The most interesting point of this brief presser is Ott pointing out his connections to the Blues franchise. Doug Armstrong and Ken Hitchcock are creating a conglomerate of former Dallas Stars players that bring a certain something to the Blues. What is that something?

"and obviously Ryan Miller's resume speaks for itself, we think this gives us a better opportunity for success this year." (2 of 2)— St. Louis Blues (@StLouisBlues) March 1, 2014
If anyone had questions as to why Ott was targeted, this should answer them.
