Depends.

If they want to keep the Blues in St. Louis and afford to pay the upcoming RFA's Stillman has to unload the Rivermen.

This year has not been good financially for either Stillman or the Taylors (rumor, but the people who have informed me of this would be in the know) coupled with the facts that:

The chance that the Blues miss the playoffs and for certain are not going to be making a deep run regardless means the extra money they thought would be coming in almost certainly won't.
and
The wink and a handshake deal between the city and Stillman has been forgotten (love that entertainment tax) by the city leaving Tom in a bit of a spot.

This has been a confluence of factors and I cannot say it was unexpected. It has however proven unfortunate.

This is also why I suspect one of the RFAs will be leaving along with another more major salaried player.
