Apparently, the St. Louis Blues are going to win their first ever Stanley Cup Championship. This is according to an NHL 14 simulation performed by EA Sports, which claims Alex Pietrangelo will be awarded the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Blues upset the Pittsburgh Penguins in a 4-2 series in the 2014 Stanley Cup Final.

"The St. Louis Blues are the personification of NHL 14," Sean Ramjagsingh, NHL 14 Producer. "They're tough, fast and have one of the deepest lineups in the League, making them a favourite to finish on top this season."

A full season recap of the simulation can be found on the NHL 14 website, but a few notable team storylines include:

  • The Chicago Blackhawks will take home the Presidents' Trophy with 108 points, only to be ousted by the Blues in the Conference Finals.
  • The Edmonton Oilers will finally edge their way into the Stanley Cup Playoffs by taking the fourth seed in the Pacific Division, breaking their seven-year playoff drought, which was the longest active streak in the NHL.
  • The final battle for playoff position will be especially heated in the West, with only one point separating fifth place, San Jose Sharks and the eighth place, Edmonton Oilers.

Do you agree with the simulation's results?
