Eh, I dunno. Doughty signed his extension when the cap was $64.3 as well--granted, it was projected to grow higher in the future, but the point shouldn't be exaggerated.

Basically, it seems to me that just because the Senators got a good deal with Karlsson, the Blues shouldn't necessarily expect one with Pietrangelo--but I know nothing of the kid, maybe he's the type to give a discount.
