There are other, better options than doing that, this is what I'm saying. Trade him for JJ, put him in a package for Parise/Ryan/Iginla because it's not like the Blues are in imminent danger of losing anybody in their core to free agency. Those type of players would help the Blues now.

Reading through the lines of Armstrong's recent interviews, I think his default is set to "we're gonna ride the forwards as they are now." However, I think he's more set on keeping Berglund than Stewart. He's well aware of where the incoming prospect talent plays (the wing), so if both McDonald and Steen can get back healthy and Stewart continues to frustrate, I wouldn't be shocked to see another move. I'd put Stewart's chances of being moved at 25%. Guesstimate. Higher than Berglund's number.

I would too
