2019-20 Preview:

After winning their first Stanley Cup in franchise history this past summer, the St. Louis Blues will look to repeat as champions with their roster very near intact. First major move, and the only one really, was the official signing of Craig Berube as head coach and removing the interim label.

 

For the Blues they went out and signed defensemen Jake Dotchin and Derrick Pouliot to add to their depth, as well as forward Nathan Walker who will be more of a fourth liner when in the lineup for the Blues.

 

One of the big questions that will face the Blues is will goaltender Jordan Binnington live up to the hype in his first full NHL season? While what he did in the second half of last season and in the playoffs was miraculous, but can he build upon it and become the long term number one guy for the Blues in the years to come?
