    Pietrangelo: Lack of deal with Blues 'a little disappointing'

    Sounds like Petrangelo is gonna test free agency. He is probably the biggest free agent to hit the market since Tavares, and what a sub-ideal time to do so. Does a team pony up 7 years, 8 million for him? Can any team realistically afford to do so, because of cap and new-onset financial constraints?

    What the hell are you playing at Blues.

    Sign the man, and boy that Faulk contract is looking tough right now.

    Petro is going to the Leafs 100%. Everyone should understand this by now. Something team friendly around $8.9 per. Book it. They can easily fill out the roster with the Thornton's and Simmonds for a million each. Dubas will get credit but players will want to come home during the pandemic.

    The whole Faulk scenario from start to finish was just bizarre, no idea what the Blues were thinking.

    The only way Toronto could do that is by trading Marner. No way they can just add 9 mil in cap.

    I don't think it indicates he is not signing with the Blues at all. Cannot blame him for at least taking a look at what kind of offers are out there to help negotiate with the Blues.
    Slight chance a team offers him crazy money and term that he might think twice about , but still think he remains a Blue at the end of the day.

    It's just a tactic. Hell entertain invtervies on the first day of UFA then sign with the blues once they up the offer through higher SBs most likely.

    The only places that would make sense for Pietrangelo rn would be Avs or maybe Bruins on short term deals. Everywhere else he might desire to go (toronto, rangers, pens, bolts) dont have capspace to bring him in

    If you trade Andersen you need to acquire a #1 goalie. Like, Murray or Lehner won't be cheaper than him.

    You have 6 mil in cap to sign at least 4 forwards and fix the right side of the D. Not really possible without drafting and developing some young talent.

    This is a tough one for the Blues, Pietrangelo is 30. How much and how long do you want to invest in him?

    Having a goalie is more important to them than a #1Dman

    Detroit. Plenty of cap space and a 1hr flight from St Louis. I assume he watched him a lot as a kid so Pie has tremendous respect for Stevie Y

    St. Louis is just as much home as Toronto at this point, maybe more so. These guys end up playing much of their adult lives in other cities, often marry local girls and have families, and then become part of the community. Petro might end up in Toronto but let's not romanticize it.

    I can't see Piets resigning at this point. Getting too close to taste UFA. That being said look at what happen with Stammer. Although, I think Tampa looked far more attractive moving forward than St. Louis at that point.

    I believe if he reaches UFA, then no team can give him 8 years.
