Alexander Steen, St. Louis Blues

Alex Steen in 2013 has 65 points in 74 games. He signed a 3 year extension and at the ripe age of 29, he is posed to be that difference maker that the Blues need to take the next step and become Stanley Cup champions. In hockey, you can play a long time if you produce. Alex Steen looks like he will be a huge piece of the puzzle for the future of the St. Louis Blues.
