I could see the Blues dealing Brewer if the 16th pick was in the mix.

Perezhogin, Ferland, Cote and the 16th pick for Brewer and the 28th pick.

Brewer will be a UFA in a couple of years, and more than likely wouldn't stick around in St. Louis if they're still near the bottom, a very real possibility.

Let's say at the draft the Habs are getting ready to draft, and there's a player on the board the Blues really like. Let's just say it's Wishart.

If the Blues are 'truly" rebuilding, Pleau may like the look of having Erik Johnson (who they may pick 1st overall), Wishart and Cote on the blueline along with Perezhogin and Ferland up front in three years instead of only having Johnson and this year's 28th pick, as Brewer will likely be long gone.

With or without Brewer, the Blues are prolly going to be pretty mediocre next season.
