In sports, the challenge isn't making it to the top, it's staying there. The Blues are now in the process of trying to stay at the top.
The Blues had this second best statistical season in 2011-2012, and possibly the best season in terms of fans. The Blues are finally becoming as bis in St. Louis as the days Al MacInnis, Brett Hull, and Chris Pronger were on the ice.
Over the course of the season they had major injuries hit the team, while some players returned from long-term injuries. Ken Hitchcock replaced Davis Payne. The Blues completely switched playing styles, and saw the success it brought.
The Blues had a great season, and they will improve on it in the upcoming season.
