The Blues are clearly in an odd place going into 2024-25. They have plenty of options and potential excitement for the fans if players like Bolduc, Dvorsky or Dean can crack the lineup and actually provide some spark.

Bolduc showed us a glimpse of what he could do last season. Dean is still high on the team's list and Dvorsky has provided plenty of highlights in the OHL and in prospects camp. We need to remember he's only 18 though.

The counter to all that is that the Blues, so far, have not made any additions to their top six. Doug Armstrong might have a card up his sleeve prior to training camp, but as of right now, the Blues are relying on the same guys that underperformed in 2023-24 to step up their game.

Although it was said as a joke, the reality is this team might have the deepest bottom six in the league. There's tons of ways you can put the third and fourth line together. The problem there is that you're not expecting those guys to get a lot of offense.

The Blues will be harder to push around and the newer players should stick up for other guys more than we saw in 2023-24, but that's not enough to say they're a playoff team.

It's up to the guys in the bluenote to get things done and earn it. I hope we see the best potential lineup right from the start, but not everyone develops or is ready at the same time. Time will tell.
