The St. Louis Blues are in an interesting period of their roster depth. While they are not riding into the sunset, filled with aging players past their prime, they do not have a ton of high-end prospects waiting to break through either.
That might seem like a potential detriment to the team’s future, but there is not a large need to worry. The Blues are still young enough on their main roster, with a few good prospects waiting, to keep their window of opportunity open awhile longer.
