If you’re hoping to see Alex Pietrangelo get his new contract in St. Louis you’d better be ready to keep waiting.

Blues GM Doug Armstrong gave the update on how negotiations are going with their prized restricted free agent to Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Spoiler: It’s not much of an update.

“There’s really nothing to report,” Armstrong said. “My belief is that it’s better to stay quiet until we have a conclusion to it and we’re not there now.”

He goes on to say he’s not concerned about how long it’s taking and that there’s six weeks until training camp starts so there’s plenty of time.

Fans in St. Louis are somewhat fretting about Pietrangelo’s deal getting done but they can take solace in the team getting Jay Bouwmeester signed to an extension and Kevin Shattenkirk to a new deal. It’s not as if the Blues have gotten cheap in those regards and with other restricted free agents. Pietrangelo will cash in eventually.

    Surprised to see none of my fellow Flyers fans on here talking about an offer sheet or trade. Eventho it’s taking forever I have no doubt Pietrangelo will be back in St. Louis.

      cameras, and all kinds of goodies that we all want for 50-90% off, I don’t know

    ^ Get rid of the spam clowns!…Blues have just enough salary left to sign, at least for 2013-2014. A little over $7.6M. He wants Doughty money from what I gather. Anything over $7.1M for Petro would be a bit concerning. If Blues offer only two year contract no matter AAV, he wants long term, & will be much better, market value may rise & Blues could be looking at paying in neighborhood of $8-9M depending how much better he gets, in the public eye at least. If he’s playing in an Original 6 city, his value & praise would be jacked!
