Blues Trade Deadline Actions Revolve Around Jackman

from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

Jackman reportedly turned down the Blues’ initial offer, a three-year extension that averaged less than $3 million per season. Once believed to be seeking a contract with an annual payout in the $4 million to $5 million range, Jackman’s camp now appears to be looking for a figure closer to “market value.”

What is market value for the Calder Cup winner who will turn 27 on March 5? Jackman has struggled offensively (two goals, six assists) this season, but he ranks second on the team in ice time per game (21 minutes, 56 seconds).

Last week, Chicago re-signed Brent Seabrook to a three-year extension that averages $3.43 million per season. On Saturday, Minnesota signed Nick Schultz to a six-year extension averaging $3.5 million a year.
