As a Blues' fan, I'd have to say I'd be inclined to take that deal.
If EJ is traded, it won't be in the Western Conference.
Send him to Boston for a package that includes a first-round pick in this draft, three guys (Wheeler, Caron, Boychuk) who can help immediately at the NHL level, and two more (Colborne and Bartkowski) who have legitimate futures, and would help in Peoria right now.
That makes a lot of sense for the Blues, and doesn't boost the payroll too enormously for the amount of NHL-ready and near-NHL-ready help they get back in exchange.
Plus, it's always nice to have multiple first-round picks, in any draft.
