The St. Louis Blues are extremely pleased to announce the signing of defenseman Joni Pitkanen, he signed to a 5 year deal, paying him 6 million per. The Blues are extremely happy on landing Joni Pitkanen and expect him to be the franchise's top blueliner ever since EJ left the squad.
He will be playing on our top pairing with Alex Peitrangelo.
Sign top goaltender Tomas Vokoun to a 3 year deal worth 19.5mil$. The deal that includes a NMC will pay Tomas 8.5mil$ in the first year, 6.5mil$ in the second and 4.5mil$ in the final year.
''We have been a struggling team for far too long and we are ready to put a end to this. Our players are ready to take the next step but like any team in the league, you don't go anywhere without quality goaltending. Our situation in nets have been well documented in the past, with Tomas Vokoun now here and 3 good young goalie in Poulin, Nilsson and Koskinen without forgetting Montoya, we are now settle for the coming years in nets and we will make the playoffs this year and for the years to come.''
Time to get your final offers in. Signings will start to be announced tonight after 9 pm EDT, concluding tomorrow afternoon. If you've been sitting on the sidelines waiting to pounce thinking no one will then have time to beat your offer, not a great strategy with me. My clients prefer teams that have been pursuing them through the process, demonstrating they really want my guys for their team. You better have a good reason for not making offers up to this point and explain why my client should sign with you.
