Blues history is littered with players that were great when you look back at thing, but they were not highly valued when they were here. Scott Young is just one of those players.
Young was always a good player and solid in the playoffs. He won two Cups, one with Pittsburgh and one with Colorado.

In Pittsburgh, he scored a goal and seven points. With the Avalanche, he had three goals and 15 points.
Even after showing up in St. Louis, he upped his game once playoff time came around. His very first season with the Blues, Young had four goals and 11 points in 13 playoff games.
It was the 2000-01 season that Young will be remembered for, as far as playoff go. Coming off a disappointing first round exit the year prior, the Blues knew they had to take things to a different level and Young helped provide that extra spark.
The feisty winger chipped in with six goals and 13 points in 15 playoff games. He was defensively responsible too, coming up a plus-9 in all his shifts.
Young did not just focus on one team as some playoff performers did in their careers. He spread things out.
Young had two goals and six points in the first round against San Jose. He had two goals and four points against Dallas in the second round. He rounded out his totals with two goals and three points against his former team, Colorado, in the conference finals.
Adding to his mystique in that playoff run, Young had three game winning goals and two shorthanded goals. Some guys do not get those totals in a full 82-game season, let alone a short, tense playoffs.
We often forget how good Young was, even if for just a brief few years. It is hard to forget his contributions in that season, where the Blues came up just short to the eventual Stanley Cup champions.
