I would prefer someone other than Stastny, but the whole divisional thing is overblown in this situation IMO.

The Avs and the Blues are not competing against each other right now. Sure they will be in the same division, but the Blues are somewhere near contenders and the Avs just ended up with the second worst record in the NHL for a reason.

The Avs might already know they are not going to re-sign Stastny, so they might as well turn them into something that helps them in the future. If they deem Perron and a second good value, then I am sure they would make that trade (assuming it is the best offer). Is that likely to be the case? Not sure, because we have no idea about other offer.

I agree that the divisional thing plays a role, but I think it is more of an issue when the teams are somewhere other than completely opposite ends of the competitive spectrum.
