See the Blues are a strange team to deal with. They aren't looking for youth or prospects and they are trying to contend. They just might run into problems with their budget. I would look for Read as part of the package because he gives them a young, cheap player who can contribute 40-45 points a year. He probably could be retained in St Louis as well.
Also I would never offer sheet Shattenkirk. If we offer sheet him at 6 million per year we are giving 4 first rounders up for him. He isn't worth that. Pietrangelo is a much better target, because his salary is expected to be north of 6-6.5 million. I see him signing in the 7 range, maybe slightly more with the new restrictions.
