Trading Yak, Hall or Eberle for Pietrangelo is ok, because you don't create an immediate NEW need. Trading RNH creates another huge oganizational hole at C.

RNH is also the only guy the Blues would even consider trading Pietrangelo for - which should be an indication that you'll never see that deal.
I wouldnt trade Hall either, we have no LW depth. I'd trade Yakupov+ in a heartbeat though, because the way I look at it with our depth at RW I don't see Yak getting more then 20 min of ice time a game. Where as Pietrangelo could play up to 30min per game and be our stabilizing force on the back end. Imagine having a team where we always have an elite d man on the ice if Schultz turns out to be as good as forecast.
