Complete Guide for St. Louis Blues' 2014 Offseason

The St. Louis Blues were a sexy pick to win among pundits last October. Publications like The Hockey News picked the team to win the Stanley Cup after decades of heartbreak and let downs.

For a majority of the 2013-14 campaign, the Blues seemed capable of living up to those predictions. St. Louis hung around at the top of the Western Conference, Central Division and NHL as a whole through the first 70 games of the regular season.

Then something strange happened. The wheels came off of a talented and playoff-hungry team, and the Blues only won two of their final 12 contests (including the playoffs). There's plenty of blame to go around in St. Louis, and changes will be made following the embarrassing showing against the Chicago Blackhawks in the first round.

Once that smoke settles, the Blues will have plenty of work to do to gear up for the 2014-15 NHL season. The goal remains the same. The roster that is pursuing that goal will likely change.
