Taking Stock: A look at the St. Louis Blues's prospect trade chips for the deadline
The St.Louis Blues are poised to make another run at a Stanley Cup in 2022.
Though this year's iteration of the Blues looks a fair bit different from the one that won it all back in 2019, many of the core pieces that led the way to the organization's first Stanley Cup remain in place.
