The 2014 NHL Draft concludes with rounds two to seven on Saturday morning. While the first round is always the most exciting, these rounds are crucial for teams to build organizational depth and the future of their rosters. It will be especially important for the St. Louis Blues, who need to continue to rebuild their minor league system after gutting it to make big trades for impact players like Jay Bouwmeester and Ryan Miller.
Another interesting Blues related angle to watch on Day 2 will be seeing where center Ryan MacInnis, the son of former Blue Al MacInnis, goes. He was projected by some as a first-rounder, but was not selected on the draft’s opening day. The Blues have reportedly expressed comfort with the idea of taking MacInnis, but it should be exciting to see if they actually pull the trigger if the opportunity arises.
