They are deep at wing, especially at RW...
Why don't we want a center coming back? As a hypothetical lets say we trade Stastny. Then we are rolling Duchene-ROR-Mitchell-Olver as our 4 centers. Not really a playoff level combo, and if Duchene or ROR gets hurt, Mitchell is the #2. That is a scary thought. Duchene-ROR-Berglund-Mitchell is actually pretty strong.

IMO we still need to get a solid #3C if we trade off Stastny or ROR. Mitchell, as surprising and solid as he has been, is not a long-term solution to our #3C role. Berglund would allow for a very solid 3rd line to be formed. Now I think our top priority should be bringing back a top 4 LD, but that isn't going to happen in a Blues trade. The best deal we can make any team is taking one of their top prospects and a young #3C or Top 4 D. There might be some other moving parts, but that is the basis of the deal.
