I think that will get you to where you're going to go in this discussion.

Trades the Blues would do:
quantity for an upgrade at center
quantity for an upgrade at LHD (Pietro's partner)
they can probably take on SOME salary, but not a heck of a lot

I see no trade from Philly that is going to look anything close to that. Frankly, the Blues are in a pretty tough position to manage with a trade partner. Maybe later in the season when a couple teams have thrown in the towel and decided to embrace the rebuild, there could be a possible trade partner.
Yah, I hear that. I picked the Blues to make it to the finals from the West. I'm just trying to see what it would take.
