It doesn't make sense to move Staal unless
1) we get = or better D from the right side, pref. also able to help out on PP
2) we get enough upgrade in another area (sniper/scoring) that it is too much profit to walk away from.
Not adding a D like Shattenkirk to at least partially offset the loss of a premium shut down D forces Blues to add to their non D compensation.
Perron is serious, but not enough premium for Rangers to be short on D.
What it really would take, IMO, is
Stall and lesser X for Tarascenko
Stall and something medium substantial Y for Tarascenko + Perron
where Blues keep their D, and Rangers keep Kreider
recognize OP said not to include Tarascenko, and no consternation intended. Just sayin given all of the above, that would be the fastest way to actually make a move that gets Marc to St. Louis.
It's a logical argument. Blues couldn't possibly afford to give up the two best offensive weapons they have, but it's not like Marc Staal is anything less than a top pairing defenseman.
I hope Rangers do well. I like their team and the way they play. Wouldn't mind at all a 7 games series with them.
