The Blues lines are going to basically look something like...

Schwartz/D'Agostini - Backes - Oshie
Perron - Berglund - Stewart
McDonald - Steen - Tarasenko
Sobotka - Nichol - Langenbrunner

Steen is having to move to C from LW, where he has played since he arrived in St. Louis. McDonald and Sobotka have also played the majority of their time on LW here, while I expect Sobotka will be the 4th line C next season, I think it would take a few injuries before we moved McDonald back to C.

The fact we roll 3 lines means we need another centre to add to Backes and Berglund. If Steen can perform like a high end 2nd line centre, then that need obviously goes away.
