Curtis Sanford Rejects Long Term Deal

from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,
On Monday, six days before the start of the NHL's free-agency period, the Blues made an unsuccessful bid to sign goaltender Curtis Sanford to a long-term contract and instead inked him to the team's one-year option. The Blues also met Monday's deadline by making qualifying offers to 12 of their restricted free agents and choosing not to offer five others. The big news of the day involved Sanford. A bit unexpectedly, the Blues made him a three-year contract offer for an undisclosed figure. By choosing to turn down the offer, Sanford will play out his option year for $472,800 in 2006-07. "It just wasn't practical for us," Sanford's agent, Todd Diamond, said. "The Blues thought he might be interested in security, and we are, but at what price? We believe Curtis is on an upswing."
