Blues Could File Tampering Charges

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

There has been so much talk about St. Louis right defenseman Alex Pietrangelo, the premier free agent on the market, fleeing to Vegas when the market opens on Friday that I am hearing substantial talk the Blues might be prepared to file tampering charges if that’s the way it shakes out.

Yes, there is the usual overheated speculation about Group II offer sheets and the flat cap and COVID-related economic issues might make teams more susceptible this time around.

But under a flat cap, contributions from entry-level players become not only more important, but essential for success. So which team is sacrificing multiple first-rounders to get a player that would have to be massively overpaid in order to discourage a match?
