Neck - Regem that for +30 stam
Shoulders - this appears to be your current highest +stam red socket bonus, put your red/stam gem here. Also re enchant with +30stam/15 resil PvP shoulder enchant (10k honor)
Cloak - re-enchant with 225 armor
Get Blood Draining on your weapon.
Trinkets - replace the corpse tongue coin. Glyph of Indominability would be an excellent choice.
Boots - Enchant with Tuskarr's Vitality instead, the runspeed is amazing
Belt - get a different belt, an easy choice would be http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=63191 and it is crafted so you can get it easily. Also, if you get this belt then you can put the red/stam gem in the belt for a +9 stam socket bonus and leave the 30 stam gem in your shoulders and still keeping your meta activated.
Gloves - get 240 armor to gloves enchant (18stam would be acceptible too)

Your spec is very wacky, I suggest taking a look at the spec section of my guide (link in sig).

Why aren't you using a Def/Stam gem in your helm? You can get 10 Defense for the cost of only 3 Stamina?

Is the only comment I have, most of what Agg has said covers what I would say.

Imo it's not a huge deal. Rawr calcs will show it's an increase in survivability, but it is extremely marginal. Some people prefer the 34 some odd extra hit points to the very low avoidance chance defense gives, but in the end it's really not game breaking at doesn't matter THAT much. But ya, general consensus is that that should be +10 def/+15stam

'cuz I dumb and saw the icon and thought it was http://www.wowhead.com/?item=45825

keep your belt, my bad.

edit: I will say though, not only is this my 1337th post, but the frost emblem belt might should be a high priority for you.

Most fights are Effective Health instead of Avoidance fights. So a Stamina and Armor Trinket with another good Stamina Trinket to sub in on some fights will be better than using an Avoidance Trinket.
