Predictions for the 2017-2018 season

 

Vladimir Tarasenko finally hits the 50-goal mark and wins the Maurice Richard trophy.   We all know that Tarasenko can score goals pretty well, but can Yeo find line mates to get the puck to Tarasenko more often.  I think he does this year.

Alex Pietrangelo and Colton Parayko both hit 50 points.  While Pietrangelo has hit 50 points, Parayko has not hit 50 yet.  Early in his career Parayko has had 33 points and 35 points, respectively, but I think Parayko gets to the 50 point mark if he just starts putting the puck on net more often.

Blues battle through early injuries and win 1st in the division this year.  The Blues probably have the most underrated core in the league.  I know that most people are knocking the Blues out of the playoff contention, but this group knows what it takes to win and I think they will continue that.
