The only way it would get done is centered around Staal for Shattenkirk (where Staal is the more valuable piece), IMO, with the Rangers adding something in order for the Blues to add one of Berglund, Steen, Stewart or Schwartz (even McDonald, perhaps, as a rental, to give us firepower in our best year to contend). Obviously, what the Rangers add is dependent on which of those forwards the Blues add, but it can't be anything of ginormous significance as it would be THE deal to complete the Rangers lineup, while at the same time, St. Louis would be getting the best player and completing a MONSTER pairing of Staal-Pietrangelo.

Something LIKE (don't judge, this is hypothetical and value would be adjusted):

Staal + JT Miller + 1st/2nd for Shattenkirk + Russell + Berglund
Holy bat****! You call my proposal bad. This is horrible.

So are we can keep him. Not a chance in hell that we are trading Vladi. These teams just do not make good trade partners. Period.
