The St. Louis Blues forwards have a lot to answer for from last year’s regular playoff performances. A few members of the forwards group have bright futures going into this season. The ones that are not living up to their billing are going to need to prove that they have what it takes to contribute on a nightly basis.

I want to take an in depth look into the players of the forward lines that have something to prove. I will also check out two of our latest professional acquisitions this off-season. Take these with a grain of salt as they are coming from a hockey player’s view point and not someone who is part of the media.  Now onto the first player!
