However, the Blues see Perron the same way. Great contract, locked up key offensive piece. If the Blues made that trade it's:
Because I'm firmly in the keep Perron camp, I'd personally be hesitant. But not because O'Reilly wouldn't be a HUGE add. I'd just prefer to find a way to deal other assets. The Blues have more spare quality assets than most teams. You'd be setting up a center scheme for a LONG time with O'Reilly-Backes-Berglund and the Blues do have wingers in the pipeline. It's a give-to-get situation but I'd have to prefer something like Sobotka + Rattie + 1st to trading Perron. Hell, send Lehtera's rights as part of a sweetener (there would be no room for him with the Blues any longer).
Tarasenko isn't ready for a role like that yet. He's pretty inconsistent defensively, and although he's dynamic with the puck...and has a bright future, he sometimes gets lots on offense (lost in the system and seems hesitant or unsure what he's supposed to do).
