There isn't much to support the St. Louis Blues making a run at the Vegas Golden Knights's current spot. The team is just... pedestrian at best. Nothing stands out, whether it's the overall scoring or the special teams.

If the Vegas Golden Knights should worry about an incoming team, it's Minnesota. The Wild have earned points in seven of their last ten games and are playing like they want to be there. A week ago, there wasn't much panic over losing the final playoff spot. Now, that dialogue's changed. If the Golden Knights don't carry a sense of urgency, it's over for the defending champions.
