I don't look at the standings until a chunk of games have been played...that means now.
I was surprised to see STL so low in the standings...which led me to look into their roster. STL are stacked at forward (just like our Nucks). STL have a star goalie in Binnington (just like our Demmers). STL have a star-studded first 4 on D (Leddy Krug Parayko Faulk)
There's the rub....I expect StL to leapfrog in the standings (they beat the Avs on the road today)
Until our mgmt trades some of our star forwards for star Dmen...we won't be moving up the league ladder anytime soon
