The St. Louis Blues have moved on from center Paul Stastny, but his subtraction from the locker room isn't sitting well with fellow forward Brayden Schenn.

"(It's) crazy. One or two points out, move a guy that does a lot for us," Schenn told Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic. "But at the end of the day, you know, that's their decision."

A pending unrestricted free agent, the Blues dealt Stastny to the division rival Winnipeg Jets in exchange for a two draft picks - including a first rounder - plus forward prospect Erik Foley.

As for the Blues, the team has hit the skids in recent weeks, dropping six straight contests, including two games without a goal. That's pushed St. Louis outside of the playoff picture, one point behind the Calgary Flames for the second wild-card seed.

Stastny departs the Blues as the team's fourth-leading scorer, behind Schenn, Vladimir Tarasenko, and Jaden Schwartz. He has 40 points through 63 games this season.
