Not much comment about the notion of St Louis trading for his rights. As a Blues fan, I'd be thrilled by this....and could live with a salary of $5M/yr (though I think it will be lower than that number people are choking on).

This thread shows pretty well that a lot of folks aren't familiar with Garrison. He'd be a perfect fit in St Louis: paired with Pietro. He doesn't need to be the PMD guy, just have a good first pass and play solid defense. This is a direct upgrade of Colaiacovo. The PP gets better. The defense in its own end gets better. Pietro is able to rely on his partner more, freeing him to explore his offense more (recall how his numbers in the 2nd half improved as he started doing this more?).

The Blues have been positioning for just such a move. Dreger has a lot more credibility than Eklund (who has none). I think this trade for the negotiating rights is likely to occur.
