He could be a tempting offer sheet target - but there’d need to be a team with the requisite cap space and all of the necessary draft picks.

Well, THIS won’t end well now no matter what.

I’ve read that the difference is $1M per year (Blues want to apy $6M, player/agent wants $7M). Is it that hard to meet in the middle at $6.5M? If the Blues refuse to go to $6.5M, trade him. There have to be at least 20 other teams that would. Although how much they’d give up for that right is questionable.

I’ll bet this is much ado about nothing though. I think he’ll be signed no later than a few games into the season.
