So I am going through some of the Blues' draft history, and my screen provided me with this little shot:

What trade brought this?

Sharks get:
2007 1st round pick (#9-Logan Couture)

Blues get:
2007 1st round pick (#13-Lars Eller)
2007 2nd round pick (#44-Aaron Palushaj)
2008 3rd round pick (#87-Ian Schultz)

So this trade did get us Halak (Eller) and D'Agostini (Palushaj), but we could have picked the available Couture at that time.

Hard to say who won that, but still worth a nostalgic look from Blues fans.

I went down an NHL Draft/Wikipedia rabbit hole a few weeks ago and saw the same thing. Kind of makes you wonder how different things would be if we had Couture. Granted, we'd probably still have Chris Mason or someone like that as our top goalie, so you can look at it either way.

Blues fans should stay far far (Franking) away from past draft history... We've drafted almost 10 times in the first round in 40 years!

They could have found two different middling prospects to trade for Halak and D'ags. I think it would have worked out nicely. No guarantee they would have taken Couture though. McDonagh would have been my first thought.
