Blues Top Hockey\'s Future Rankings
ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues were chosen as the top ranked organization by Hockey's Future, a website devoted to rating NHL prospects.

This is the second straight year in which the Blues have received the top spot on the strength of prospects such as T.J. Oshie, Patrik Berglund, Lars Eller and Alex Pietrangelo.

Here's what Hockey's Future had to say about the Blues:

"T.J. Oshie and Patrik Berglund already excelling in the NHL signifies the Blues youth movement is firmly underway. The cupboard remains well-stocked with offensive-minded prospects Lars Eller and Nikolai Lemtyugov waiting in the wings and forwards Travis Erstad, Aaron Palushaj, Philip McCrae, and Jori Lehtera still several years away. Depth defensemen like Roman Polak and Jonas Junland compliment blue-chip prospects Ian Cole and Alex Pietrangelo to round out a solid defensive core. Ben Bishop highlights a strong trio of goaltending prospects that includes Marek Schwarz and Jake Allen. Weaknesses: The weaknesses within the organization are scant, with the most noticeable being a lack of any elite goal-scoring forwards. The talent pool is a little shallow on the wings. Top 5 prospects: 1. Alex Pietrangelo, D, 2. Patrik Berglund, C, 3. T.J. Oshie, C, 4. Lars Eller, LW, 5. Ian Cole, D. Key losses to graduation: Erik Johnson, David Perron. "
