The 6 The Blues Need to Keep. AKA, the Core

For the STL Blues to have continuous success in the future, they have to keep these 6 players in STL, IMO:

Pietrangelo
Shattenkirk
Backes
Oshie
Perron
Tarasenko

What do you guys think? Can they afford it and still ice a good team around them with their budget? This year has been a perfect storm and I love it, but I cant help but look down the road and see the Blues having to let guys like Polak, Steen, Berglund, etc. walk.

That will hurt if it happens. Those 6 guys look like 40 MIL in 3-5 years.
