The St. Louis Blues are a team on the rise with lots of young talent.
This is a statement that many Blues fans have heard repeated over the past few years, but just how talented is this young group of forwards?
Depending on who you talk to, the Blues have top line talent in players like David Backes, T.J. Oshie and others, but rarely do these players get recognized in the mainstream media; enter ESPN.
The #NHLRank, courtesy of ESPN has made the list clear, sort of. The list contains all of the usual names that one would expect on such a list, but with players like Bobby Ryan getting the shaft. So just who and where would ESPN place some of the “young talent” of the St. Louis Blues?
