QUESTION: How much coverage will you be giving the Blues this season?
HOCHMAN: A bunch - I'm super-excited about the Blues this season, and especially with the Rams gone, I'll jump on Blues coverage a lot. A lot of huge storylines this season, obviously. Will Jake Allen arise as an elite goalie? How will Petro due as a captain? Can 91 become a super-duper-star? How much will the team miss Backes? Will Steener have a season worthy of a 4-year, maybe close to 30-mil contract? Can the Blues compete for the Cup? A lot to dissect -- lookin' forward to it.
