Good luck to them, it's going to be hard to acquire one.
St Louis has an abundance of gritty, defensively sound players. They lack pure offensive threats up front. They are looking for a centre who is going to score points, not be a face off whiz or a banger.

here is a list of centres that outscored Gagner this year:

Steven Stamkos
Sidney Crosby
Eric Staal
Pavel Datsyuk
Ryan Getzlaf
Mike Ribeiro
Jonathan Toews
Nicklas Backstrom
John Tavares
Henrik Sedin
Derek Stepan
Nazem Kadri
Matt Duchene
Anze Kopitar
Joe Thornton

which one of these guys are available and a better option than Gagner? the obvious answer is Ribero but he is going to get a huge payday and the Blues are nearing the cap with their rfa. It is also to be determined if they are a cap limit team because they have been near the bottom of the league in payroll for years.

It is criminal how under-rated Gagner is on hfboards.
