Move Steen to 2C, Oshie/Sobotka to 3C and the team is just fine.

Perron-Backes-Eberle
Mac-Steen-Oshie
D'Ags-Sobotka-Stewart
Reaves-Nichol-Langenbrunner

Cole-Petro
Jackman-Petry
Russell-Polak.

I love Shatty and Berglund as much as the next guy, but let's not pretend they're untouchable.
It is an easy pass from the Blues. On pure value it is in our favour, but we downgrade two areas where we have no strength in depth and make an upgrade in an area of significant strength.

You are right that Berglund and Shattenkirk aren't untouchable, but this trade wouldn't make the Blues any better.
