Power Rankings
The Blues have really become a team that looks deadly from all angles. Six players have 30 or more points led by Vladimir Tarasenko's 47. The scoring attack has the ability to overwhelm and that couldn't be said as much last year.
A healthy Brian Elliott certainly helps, but there's more to the Blues' recent stretch during which the club has won seven of its last eight games. The production from top players has been huge.
The Blues are heating up and scoring in buckets. Over their last four games, the Blues have outscored opponents 24-8 in regulation. Their goaltending issues of late won't be a problem if that's the kind of output they get.
The Blues have not gotten great goaltending in the absence of Brian Elliott. It looks like the team's No. 1 is getting eased back into the lineup after recovering from injury, but they need him at full strength to realize their full potential. That's clear now.
The Blues could get Brian Elliott back shortly, which would be a huge boost for leaky goaltending in his absence. Getting him back puts the club back on track, though they're not far off now.
The Blues had a five-game winning streak snapped with back-to-back losses earlier this week. Getting Brian Elliott healthy and having him play as he did before the injury gives the Blues a real shot to make a run here.
Currently riding a four-game winning streak during which they beat a strong Islanders squad twice, the Blues have gotten contributions from all over. T.J. Oshie's six points over the streak has been particularly helpful.
The Blues have notched wins in each of their past two games, with Martin Brodeur getting both decisions. The Marty hoopla has overshadowed everything else, but the Blues remain a force.
The Blues were arguably the NHL's most impressive team in November, finishing the month with 11 wins in 15 games. The depth of this lineup continues to impress.
The Blues have won seven of their last 10 games and just about every game it looks like they're in control. The depth at forward makes St. Louis a challenging team to shut down.
Preseason Power Rankings
New addition Paul Stastny is making his presence felt immediately with four points through two games. The forward depth on this roster should lead to a quick rise up this list.
