Geoff Courtnall, Cliff Ronning, Sergio Momesso and Robert Dirk for Dan Quinn and Garth Butcher. At the 91 deadline and completely destroyed that amazing year. Just a horrendously brutal trade.

Runner up
The Pronger trade (mandated by a POS owner on his way out the door giving a finger to the fans)

Trading away Gilmour over a made-up and recanted babysitter allegation.
I'd say, value wise, the best trade for the Blues was the Gretzky deal.

Craig Johnson, Patrice Tardiff, Roman Vopat, a 5th and a 1st for the (arguably) greatest player of all time? Who knew then that Keenan would screw it up bad enough that we'd lose him after a few dozen games. The value was a grand slam for the Blues.

Worst of all-time is the Pronger deal. The Courtnall deal was awful to, but in terms of value, Pronger was one of the best defenseman in the league.
