St. Louis Blues Stanley Cup Betting

It was another solid season for the St. Louis Blues. In 2021-22 the Blues made the playoffs for the 10th time in 11 years. The 2019 Stanley Cup championship glow is still strong in the Gateway City. And expectations remain high as well. But a lackluster offseason does raise concerns about the Blues' prospects in 2022-23. David Perron has moved on after scoring 27 goals and 30 assists with a +8. St. Louis had a scoring depth that proved a great advantage in 2021-22. Perron takes some of that away. And then goaltender Ville Husso is gone as Jordan Binnington won his net back. But Binnington has been inconsistent since the Stanley Cup championship and now faces less competition should he falter. Thus, letting Husso go was a gamble.

Last year the St. Louis Blues finished with a record of 49-22-11 for 3rd in the Central Division. St. Louis ranked 3rd for goal scoring, 2nd for power play efficiency, 11th for goals against, and 5th for penalty killing.

General manager Doug Armstrong is regarded as one of the best in the NHL. Armstrong has been in the organization since 2008 and general manager since 2010. Armstrong will go down in history as the GM that built the Blues' first Stanley Cup championship team.

Head coach Craig Berube was the interim head coach that led the Blues to the 2019 Stanley Cup. Berube took a team that was last overall in the NHL and made them into champions a few months later. Berube was a journeyman NHL player that previously coached the Philadelphia Flyers, who he also played for. Berube has a career record of 231-138-4 in the regular season and 27-31 in the playoffs.

Center Ryan O’Reilly is the team captain and was instrumental in leading the Blues to their 2019 Cup title. Last year O’Reilly scored 21 goals with 37 assists and a +11.

Right wing Vladimir Tarasenko was assumed to be traded. Instead, he exploded for a surprise season of 34 goals and 48 assists with a +7.

Goaltender Jordan Binnington was a career minor leaguer when he took over in goal for the Blues in 2019. The rest is history. Last year Binnington had a .901 save percentage in the regular season but improved to .949 in the playoffs.

St. Louis Blues History

The St. Louis Blues were part of the NHL 1967 “Great Expansion” when the league doubled from 6 to 12 teams. The Blues made the Stanley Cup Final in their first three seasons by winning the “West” Division comprised of the six expansion teams. As a result, the Blues started leading the entire NHL in attendance for most of their first decade of existence. St. Louis finally won its first Stanley Cup in 2019, which set off a celebration that matched anything the baseball Cardinals ever had.

Now, St. Louis is firmly established as one of the great legacy franchises in the NHL. Past marquee men of the Blues include Jacques Plante, Glenn Hall, Red Berenson, brothers Bob and Barclay Plager, and Brett Hull. Hull’s arrival jumpstarted a franchise mired in mediocrity and the Blues have had a big league feel ever since.

St. Louis has found a combination of stability and consistency with chairman Tom Stillman and general manager Doug Armstrong. Armstrong has done a masterful job of keeping the team a contender while navigating the salary cap and free agency challenges. Most important of all, Armstrong delivered the Stanley Cup banner that had painfully eluded this franchise.

The Stanley Cup championship was the final piece of the credibility puzzle for the Blues. The franchise has always had a large, passionate, and generational fan base. Tradition and history have been a leading part of the franchise’s culture from the start. But now that a Stanley Cup championship banner hangs from the rafters, a long-sought legitimacy is complete.
