NHL trade rumors: Who should the St. Louis Blues trade?

The St. Louis Blues fell 4-2 to the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night. It was the team's third consecutive loss and the once high-flying Blues now find themselves in eighth place in the Western Conference standings.  Head coach Ken Hitchcock has been telling reporters that his team has not "bought-in" to the system at this point, which is a big concern considering there are only 15 games remaining in this shortened season.

Anytime a team is underachieving the way the Blues are, the general manager usually steps in and makes a trade to shake things up. Anytime a coach talks about guys not buying in, the general manager usually steps in and shakes things up.

Basically, it is time for St. Louis Blues' general manager Doug Armstrong should make a move, but who should he trade? There are plenty of candidates to trade.

David Perron has been moved from the top-line, to the second line, and is not on the third line and feels like a candidate despite signing a four year contract last off-season.

Patrik Berglund was demoted after the second period of Thursday's loss to the fourth line after playing an uninspired first two periods and finished the night a minus-3.

Fans have also clamored to move popular players such as T.J. Oshie and David Backes. So who should the Blues trade? Vote now.
