He's the player that the Blues absolutely cannot afford to lose. Army knows hockey, and I don't think it will be all that difficult to convince Stillman, who also knows the game, to sign off on a long term, reasonably big money contract. I really hope they don't screw around with him and potentially **** him off. Something reasonable.
I would try to sign him for slightly less then Karlsson I would probably start negotiations at around 5 million 8 year deal and hope to settle around 6-6.5 million. I would try to use the cap going down as a little leverage to get him signed for less then Karlsson.
