I'm fine with Berglund and Backes/McDonald centering the top two lines going forward. If I were the Blues, I'd be looking for a goaltender after next year (when Mason is a UFA), a defenseman after next year (when McKee is off the books and we can buy out Brewer's last year), and maybe a top flight scoring winger. I think all of these can wait until our defensemen (Johnson and Petro) get some experience and we see how good our young kids (Berglund, Perron, Oshie, Eller) turn out to be. There is no need to trade for a top flight forward if a couple of those guys develop into one in the next year or two.
Would there be any interest in a smaller deal, say something that revolved around G Brian Elliot and maybe another player / draft pick for Oshie or Perron?
