As the NHL prepares to restart the 2020 season, fans have reassessed where they think their favorite team stands. For Blues fans, I’m not so sure how much of it’s a reassessment as it is picking up where we left off.
In the latest SB Nation Reacts survey, NHL fans were asked if they believe their favorite team is a serious championship contender, or, if their team is no longer playing, who that fanbase will turn to now. After winning the franchise’s first Stanley Cup last summer, and ending the shortened season atop the Central Division, Blues fans can be forgiven for being sure of their team.
With the best record in the Western Conference, St. Louis fans are extremely confident in the team. Nearly all of fans believe the Blues have a serious shot at repeating as Stanley Cup champions.
The Blues return to action Sunday for their first round robin game against the Colorado Avalanche. Now that the play counts for something, expect a very different effort than what we were subjected to on Wednesday afternoon.
