They were talking about Pietrangelo on That's Hockey...just how he still isn't signed but might be loathe to holdout b/c it's an Olympic year and it will be to his benefit to get playing right away to improve his chances of making the team.
Unless he's asking for something astronomical (and you never know, but he doesn't seem like the type who would act stupid) the Blues are idiots if they're hardballing him...according to capgeek they currently have $7.6m in space...and I can't imagine he'd want more than Doughty...who got $7m aav for 8 years (which includes 3 UFA years).
Too bad the cap went down and teams have so little space. I'd love to see someone give him a huge offer sheet at a bad term (5 years?) knowing the Blues will inevitably match.
