Better than losing him for nothing, and Gillis will find Edler's replacement in the Luongo deal. So no, it won't.

McDonald and Oshie aren't centers and we are worse suited at center than left defense.

Then why would you trade Berglund to begin with?

Blues fans don't want Berglund traded.

I don't think letting a number 1 defenseman go based on a hypothetical return that is guaranteed to be a far inferior replacement is a good idea. There's no need to start shopping him, plenty of players haven't extended yet, and the CBA has barely been ratified for a day.
