Oshie's a fan favourite and very marketable so the Blues wont move him (as was pointed out by lots of people when this was posted on the Pens board). Boyes is a top 6 guy but it's a bit worrying that he's on pace for another sub 20 goal season.
You forgot to add that Staal was on a very good, high scoring team and that Oshie is on the exact opposite.
Oshies first two years were slightly better than Staals offensively, despite playing less games.
