Re: Pietrangelo Free Agency Talk

Eight year deal is kind of scary...but if you got five good ones.....and three where he was third pairing...would that be worth it to you? Totally depends on the AAV. If he signs for right around $8 mil, then I think Army says yes. Army showed his philosophy when signing Schenn. He flat out said th...

Re: Pietrangelo Free Agency Talk

Food for thought......watching both Luke Schenn and Zach Bogosian in the playoffs, and they have both played surprisingly well. When I watch them, they both look like character veterans that add a nice dimension to Tampa’s lineup. In both cases, they look like guys that have slowed down, but could h...

Re: Pietrangelo Free Agency Talk

JR posted an article with lots of detail last night. Sounds like the offer has gone up to 8 and there are versions that hit 7-8 years, but issues remain regarding a no movement clause and bonus structure in the last year or two of the contract. Bigger bonuses in the late years make contracts hard t...

Re: Pietrangelo Free Agency Talk

Latest from Strickland: https://twitter.com/andystrickland/status/1307296358588731394?s=21 Also this: “ I’ve said from the beginning, one of the biggest roadblocks between Pietrangelo and the #stlblues would be how the contract is structured. Under Stillman/Armstrong , they have never negotiated sig...

Re: Pietrangelo Free Agency Talk

How many GM’s in the league would tell their Captain, who is currently a top 10 defenseman that just won you a Cup, to go take a hike? I’ll tell you how many other GM’s would do this.............NONE..........ZERO............NADA...........so much for Army being too loyal. Apparently he’s only loya...

Re: Playoff Hockey -2020

Should be an interesting series. Scratch what I said about Tampa needing the rest.....they are starting tomorrow night. Shit, I thought they would get at least a few days off. Thankfully, I don’t hate either team (other than Jamie Benn), so it’s not like the Blackhawks are in this. I’d prefer to see...

Re: Playoff Hockey -2020

Tampa needed to close it out tonight because they were on fumes. They need a little rest before the Final. Four or five days ago, I thought Tampa was all but certain to win the Cup, as long as Point wasn’t hurt. Well, now they look tired and Point is hurt. Going to be an interesting series against D...

Re: Bill Armstrong to Arizona

Kind of interesting......looks like the Coyotes have made an offer to Armstrong, but still no confirmation that he has been hired. It probably means nothing and he will take the job, but I’m not sure I have ever seen that before. Usually you just see that Team XYZ has hired a guy. Again, probably ju...

I'm not sure how much credit for the drafting goes to Bill anyway, I mean he goes on what his supporting cast tells him.
I always just appreciated his enthusiasm for players we drafted. That guy obviously loves his job and he would get really fired up talking about guys.

Re: Bill Armstrong to Arizona

Good luck to Bill.....did a good job despite having very few 1st round picks over the years. I think the Blues will be in good shape, and I hope the Arizona situation stabilizes and the whole thing works out well. Now, let’s get the Army-to-Army red phone installed and work out a deal for Clayton Ke...

Re: Pietrangelo Free Agency Talk

Posted over at the Idiot Forum......I don’t think those players make sense, and those names appear to be Berger’s speculation, but it wouldn’t shock me if the Blues were talking to the Leafs. Howard Berger @Berger_BYTES 17 hours ago “#Leafs and St. Louis are talking as per source. Could it involve A...

... Only way the Lightning lose in the Final is if Brayden Point can’t play. He is outstanding.
*OR* what if Jamie Benn sits on their captain? :shock:
JMC, that’s preposterous. I literally can’t imagine such a thing!

Re: Pietrangelo Free Agency Talk

Pretty interesting that the Lightning are going to go to the Final and most likely win the Cup.......with retreads like Bogosian, Schenn, and Shatty making up half of their top 6. Of course Hedman is absolutely outstanding, but I still think there is an interesting message there.

Re: Playoff Hockey -2020

The Lightning look fantastic......night and day from the last few years. Maroon clearly has a lot to do with the different attitude this team has this year, and he is also playing very well. The crazy thing is that the Lightning are doing this without Stamkos, and with retreads like Bogosian and Luk...

Re: NHL Offseason Trades and Signings

They still gotta sign him...he may still be having nightmares about playing in front of Jake. He may also still have a totally unrealistic view of what his value is. He’s a third pairing defenseman who thinks he should be paid like a #3 guy. If I remember, he asked for $4.2 million in arbitration. ...
