The St. Louis Blues truly won and lost as a team in 2018-19, perhaps more so than any year in recent memory. Still, there are always those that stand out just a little bit.
The St. Louis Blues had oe heck of a roller coaster ride during the 2018-19 NHL regular season. There were plenty of moments we wish we had some Dramamine due to the sickness they all gave us.
The Blues could not have opened the year much worse. We all tried to chalk it up to a slow start and getting team chemistry, but there was something seriously wrong with the team.
In plain fact, they were not a team. They were less than a group of talented individuals.
They were just 20-plus guys slapping on a uniform and getting paid. They gave up on one another, gave up on the games and the results showed all of that.
Things were so bad that the Blues were the last place team on January 2. It has been quite some time since we had to worry about the Blues being in the basement, but that’s where they were.
Whether it be fate or divine intervention, the players finally turned things around. So night and day was the turnaround that the Blues literally almost went from worst to first in the matter of two or three months.
It was not an easy journey, but the team pulled it off. They pulled it off because they became a true team in every sense of the word.
However, even though you need to give credit to every guy that put on that sweater, there are still players and performances that stand above the rest. With that in mind, here are the five best players from the 2018-19 Blues regular season.
