I have zero idea, in the first place, why St. Louis would be interested in a Gaborik for Shattenkirk swap -- and even less of an idea of why you would degrade a damn good player.
Pietrangelo and Cole are making him quite expendable in my mind, but I have no idea about what St. Louis may be thinking.

For a scorer like Gaborik that might put the Blues over the top offensively, they might cough Shattenkirk up. Both teams win.

Backes is just about as untouchable to the Blues as Callahan is to us. I'd give up anyone not named Lundqvist, Stepan, Staal, or McDonagh for him. The rest is open season.
