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.
Eberle is not needed on the Blues. The front office has given every indication they believe Tarasenko will become that goal scorer we need. If Doug Armstrong believes that, well I trust him. Berglund cannot be traded unless another center comes back. I love me some Alex Steen, but the idea of him being the second line center is down right scary. Hitch likes big two way centers. And it's going to stay that way. Not to mention the fact that eberle is going to make almost 6 million a year for 6 years. Easy pass.
