Lol, some of the Blues fans in here are severely overrating our need for a LHD. Yeah we could use one, but we don't need to overpay for one and create bigger holes on our team. Trading away guys like Steen, Polak, Shattenkirk just to get Staal isn't making us any better.

Yeah a Staal-Pietrangelo first pairing would be great, but then you have:

Jackman-Polak = completely incapable of moving the puck
Russell-Cole = completely overmatched defensively

When that top-pairing isn't on the ice.

So just no. We aren't trading Shattenkirk, or Polak, or really any of our defensemen for another d-man. The point of a trade would be to add to our defensive group, not subtract from it. Forwards/prospects/picks would be what we are trading.

So thankfully nobody in here is the GM because this isn't happening.
