He's the idea partner for Pietrangelo. His cap hit is a little high, but I can't see that organization ponying up for a buyout when they face the prospect of major outlays for Pietrangelo, Shattenkirk, etc.
When the Blues went and got JBo, my first thought was that he's insurance so that when either Pieterangelo or Shattenkirk sign with another organization, that they're covered with their top pair.
No doubt the Blues expect to lose one of them and will take the compensation in return from the signing team. There is no sensible reason why they would have three defensemen pulling down $18M collectively.
