No. I wouldn't.

The Blues are built on depth and defense.

Stamkos isn't great defensively.

The amount of assets the Blues would have to give up to get Stamkos would kill any realistic chance the Blues have at winning the Cup.

Perhaps if you lived through Blues history, and have seen your team go out and try to get the "missing piece" only to be killed due to lack of depth you wouldn't be seduced by star players. Trading Courtnall, Momesso, Dirk, and Ronning for Butcher and Quinn didn't work. Trading Brind'Amour and Quinn for Baron and Sutter didn't work either. I would love for the Blues to continue to build the depth necessary to compete in the post-season.
