Schwartz’s agent, Wade Arnott, and Blues general manager Doug Armstrong have held lengthy discussions in recent weeks, but agree they are not close on a contract extension.
“We remain significantly apart on our respective positions at this point,” Arnott said Wednesday.
“I understand their position, they understand our position,” Armstrong said, “and there is a gap in the level of compensation.”
The success of Schwartz, 22, in such a short time has made for a complicated negotiation.
In 2013-14, Schwartz ranked third on the Blues’ roster with 25 goals and fourth in points with 56. He finished with a plus-minus rating of plus-28, tops on the team and tied for No. 13 in the NHL.
