I would have liked to get Petro but not at what it would have cost. Is Petro better then Brodie? Absolutely but what's best for the team overall? Having Petro or having Brodie and Nylander and anything else it would have cost to land him?

I really don't think enough attention got paid to that article that was posted examining Pietrangelo's actual role with the Blues. I think most of the people who really wanted him here cast him in the Norris-contending do everything play 25 minutes a night and be the best defenseman on the whole ice and apparently aren't aware that the Blues had their real success in not using him against the other team's top lines.

I read that as well. Parayko apparently got the tougher assignments.

I chuckled when Vegas' GM said he was the "first over the boards in every situation for his team"... except for when the other teams top players come on the ice or when his team is shorthanded I guess.

Love this headline from TSN..

Pietrangelo on Vegas: 'I was impressed with what the organization could offer'

Gee. I wonder if he means the biggest cash offer made to him ?
