The NHL regular season begins for the St. Louis Blues tonight when they open up at home against the Nashville Predators. So what’s in store for the St. Louis Blues in the 2013-2014 season?

Win the Central Division

The defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks and the Minnesota Wild are in the division. Outside of those two teams, the division seems weak. The Colorado Avalanche are rebuilding, the Dallas Stars are mediocre at best and I’m not buying into the Winnipeg Jets just yet. Even if winning the division doesn’t matter too much in the NHL, it would still be a good sign for potential postseason success to win the Central division.

Avoid LA in the playoffs

The LA Kings just have the Blues’s number. I don’t know why but they do. Try your best to avoid them as long as you can. Preferably only to face them in the Western Conference finals.

Season Prediction:

45 Wins, 27 losses, 10 OTL

Predicting 45 wins is a lofty expectation in the NHL. However, the Blues have the talent to pull it off. That would give them 100 points on the year with the overtime losses. This should be a very exciting year for the St. Louis Blues.
