St. Louis Blues: Positives and Negatives from 1st Week of Play

Through the first week of NHL play, the St. Louis Blues have looked extremely good. 

The Blues start the season boasting a 5-1-0 record, their only loss coming to the 6-0-0 Chicago Blackhawks on the road. Ken Hitchcock has made sure the week of camp to start the season actually meant something, and the entire team was ready to play when the puck dropped last week.

In the six games so far, the Blues picked up right where they left off last season, and may even be better than the team last year or the President's Trophy-winning club of 1999-2000. They play complete offense and defense, and the goaltending is solid once again.

I may be nitpicking, but every aspect of the game is under the microscope when it comes to the shortened season. So looking into the future, here are positives and negatives to take from the first week of the season. Look for them throughout the rest of the 2013 campaign.
