The St. Louis Blues should have an exciting future ahead of them. They seem to have drafted well, but the question is who might be ready to be a pro before the others?
The St. Louis Blues have plenty of young talent coming through the pipeline. We hear names through the rumors and some even from the general manager’s mouth. However, like their baseball neighbors, sometimes it is just bluster.
He scored 13 goals in his first full NHL campaign. It has all come crashing down since then and the question of whether he still has a spot on this team is a legitimate one.
That does not mean we won’t continue to look to the future and have high hopes. For every Jaskin, there is a Robby Fabbri, waiting to surprise us.
It’s not an easy task. There are lots of guys with immense talent at the lower levels that just can’t make it click.
Some are simply major junior or college players. Some guys are merely good in the AHL.
It takes something special to make that extra step. It takes something even more other worldly to be an NH superstar.
So, let’s take a look at who might actually be ready to make the jump to the NHL.
