3. Clear Room for Scott Perunovich
Scott Perunovich has been a huge mystery for the Blues to start his NHL career. He had never had injury problems until having injuries that have sidelined the young defender for back-to-back seasons.
Perunovich is just 25 years old and the former Hobey Baker Award winner deserves a chance to play for the St. Louis Blues daily. He did well enough in the preseason to earn a spot on the roster, kicking Calle Rosen to the AHL.
Through two games this season, Perunovich has yet to see the ice. With the way the team is playing defensively, it may be a while before any adjustments are made. The Blues have only allowed two goals through the first two games.
