I would like to hope the Blues trade current roster players under contract to fill that hole, allowing them to install cost-controlled players like Rattie and Jaskin, freeing up the money for Stewart, Shattenkirk, Pietrangelo, etc.

The idea being that it is a relatively cost-neutral move for the Blues, as opposed to trading futures for a piece that will add significantly to the payroll.
