I apologize if there has been enough "Stewart to the Pens" proposals already, but I thought I would try one that didn't involve asking for Bennett or Despres.

PIT seems to have Centers and D prospects (which STL needs), and STL has wingers (which PIT needs). Too many Blues fans get caught up trying to only deal Stewie for the "mythical #1C", whereas if a deal like this went down, that would give STL two 1sts to possibly use in a separate deal to land that 1C. At least, that was my thought...
You want to rid the Blues of what may possibly be their largest trade chip for:

A 2nd/3rd line center (in the future)
A #3-4 left defenseman
A late 1st round pick
A goaltender who routinely puts up less than a .900 save percentage in the playoffs.

In essence you want the Blues to trade a goal scorer (plus Halak) for future depth.
Depth...the strength the Blues are always listed at that has won them lo these many, might Stanley Cups.

Sounds good. Sign me up.
