I think that The Blues winning their first playoff series will help in Tarasenko's decision. And winning the 2nd series will help, immensely. If Tarasenko knows that The Blues are a legitimate contender for The Stanley Cup, and that window of opportunity doesn't stay open long or even come open for many teams, he may well want to avoid missing even one year of having that possibility. He may forego better money for a couple years (earlier than he might have in other circumstances) to play with a team that has a reasonable shot at winning it all. If The Blues win The Western Conference Finals, that may well seal the deal.
Let's hope all this comes to pass, and Tarasenko signs right after The Blues win The Stanley Cup THIS June!
