I hated the Faulk trade by itself but the extension was awful for this very reason.

If Petro wants $8.2 per over 8 years you make that happen and find a way to make that work. Even with the flat cap that is reasonable for the captain of the blues first cup and a top 5-10 defender in the league. I don't believe anything that anyone is saying right now on Twitter about this though. If army is sticking to his stupid internal cap structure (nobody in the top 50ish paid players in the league) for Petro (or players of his ilk) I'm back off the army bandwagon less than two years after the guy built a cup winning team.

That doesn't sound good, and I am not happy.

the AAV i'm fine with/find a way to make it work...but 8 years? hell no, he'll be nearly 40. we have plenty of depth on D and coming up, if that's what he's really holding out for.

I'm no expert but it sure seems like being a GM in the NHL would be the hardest of the professional sports leagues.

Yep, was very happy for both of them. Last night's game was an impressive team performance. TB deserved the cup.

A LGB poster said he hard on NHL network that the Blues offered around $8.7m over 8 years. I know there are other details to hash out, like when the money is paid, movement clauses, etc, but considering the flat cap, that’s a respectable offer.
