theScore is previewing each team leading up to the 2016-17 season.
It's rare for a team to wave goodbye to both its No. 1 goalie and captain, yet assert that their core is still intact, but such is the case with the St. Louis Blues.
The Blues' biggest move to counter these departures was bringing back David Perron, who began his career in St. Louis. With young stars Colton Parayko and Robby Fabbri already making meaningful contributions to the club, the team should remain a contender with a wealth of talent still at their disposal.
