I don't have a clue how we could get the cap space to do this, and I'm not even sure if a 7-year, $8mil contract is a smart move long-term... but I still wanna see it.

Sounds like someone who wants to be paid 90% in signing bonuses to me.

Also, what on earth is St. Louis doing there?

I wonder if they mean no trade clauses too.

Nylander goes for picks/prospects? Or do you dump Johnsson and say Kerfoot? I would def trade Freddie for Kuemper..its a 500k savings for us and 2.5 mill in actual money for the Yotes. I'm not sure about getting AP for 7 years tho. Yes he's good now but when does he drop off? Maybe he doesn't. Man I'd love to get a D man of this calibre. Just look at what Hedman does for TBay. He's a beast. Rielly and AP would be an awesome pairing.

Watching each side of this picking which reporters to leak their version of these negotiations to is fun.

There?s so much time left. What did they say to each other?

This seems impossible. They can?t ask someone to sign a contract without showing them the contract.  And anyway, the player would just assume it is the worst possible contract for them at that AAV. It can?t possibly be true.

Quote?There was a discussion today, and I guess the best way to sum it up, we haven?t really made much progress,? Pietrangelo said in an exclusive interview. ?We just think right now, with where things are at, that maybe it?s best for both sides to see what?s going on in free agency, what the team can explore, what I can explore and if there are better fits for each side.

?We?re a little disappointed that we?re in this situation. We weren?t able to hammer out the details what we wanted in a deal. There was some work that we tried to get done that we couldn?t get done, so both sides agreed that maybe it?s in the best interest. We?re two weeks away. Not saying anything can?t change, but as of right now, that?s kind of our plan, and we?ll see where things go.?

Pietrangelo also sounds open to 5-7 yr options (with St Louis) but NMC and signing bonuses are important to him: certainties in an uncertain time.

They couldn't have asked him to sign, but maybe they wanted him to agree to a deal in principle so that way they'd know exactly how much cap space they'd need to start clearing.

I agree though if that's what happened it's still a bad look for St. Louis.
