4.2m is not 6.5m

Not being able to beat out Hamhuis and Edler for ice time is not the same as ending up in the minors

If the Blues can go out and find a better top 4 defensemen for less they should do that, no question. My experience is that teams hang onto their top 4 or trade them for significant assets.
