Why don't we look at the Blues salary structure.

We have roughly $32.5 million in real dollars for 12 players next season. Of the free agents, McDonald, D'Agostini, and Langenbrunner will all not return.

Lets say Pietrangelo gets an offer for $9 million per. Shattenkirk gets 4.5, Stewart gets 4, Berglund gets 3.75, Nichol and Porter get the same contract at 650K, Russell gets 1.5, Cole gets 1, and Redden gets 1.

All that gives us a cash payroll of around $58.5 million. This is not even factoring in replacing Elliott with Allen saving a little bit more. It is also not factoring in any of the players receiving less money up front like we do with all of our re-signings.

It would truly take something out of this world for us not to match.
