I think it makes perfect sense. Boyes even grew up a Sens fan despite living in the GTA. Eller plays LW though is listed as both a centre and a left wing (though more often than not as a centre) He plays for none other than Frolunda and I'm pretty sure played against Ottawa in their pre-season game against each other. As well as playing with Karlsson. For St. Louis, they have more than enough centres up and coming to replace Boyes and this makes them significantly better now, while not making much of an impact on their future.
Yeah, I'm sure the fact that Boyes was a Sens fan means this is more likely to get done.

Boyes: 33g, 39a, 72 pts, $4MM/yr for 3 more years
Heatley: 39g, 33a, 72 pts, $7.5MM/yr for 5 more years

The Blues are hardly in a position to take on more salary or even pay $7.5MM for one player. Even with that, Heatley is not that big of an upgrade over Boyes to give up our 2nd best prospect after Pietrangelo as well. The Blues say no thanks.
