The highlight of the 1997–98 St. Louis Blues season would mark an end of an era as Brett Hull was not re-signed following the season.

OffseasonEdit

In his first full season as Coach Joel Quenneville decided to employ a defensive formula. The move worked wonders as even Brett Hull brought into the new system as the Blues finished in 3rd place with a solid 45–29–8 record. In the playoffs the Blues would dominate the Los Angeles Kings sweeping them in 4 straight. However, in the 2nd round the Blues would be upended by the Detroit Red Wings in 6 games. The season would mark an end of an era as Brett Hull is not resigned following the season as he sign a free agent deal with the Dallas Stars.[1]
