The St. Louis Blues look like contenders after getting off to a 3-0-0 start for the fourth time in team history.

With the Cardinals missing the playoffs for the first time since 2010, Stan Kroenke skipping town with his NFL franchise and both big college football teams, Mizzou and Illinois, floundering at 2-4, the Blues are the lone bright spot in St. Louis sports right now.

And that has Frank Cusumano wondering about the title that would be the best in the city's history.
