  • Tarasenko signs 8 year deal/60M

    From the outset, St. Louis Blues GM Doug Armstrong maintained that his No. 1 priority this summer was to get right winger Vladimir Tarasenko under contract. That mission has been accomplished thanks to a new eight-year, $60 million pact and now the next phase begins.

    That's a pretty big contract.

    I guess the Blues are sold on Tarasenko as a long-term superstar. He had a spectacular season last year, and his playoff numbers are ridiculous.

      Man, he was definitely amazing last season but $7.5M for the next 8 years is a pretty hefty cap burden for a guy. That said, he's shown all the things that would make one think it'll look like a bargain in 4-5 years.

          That's true. I think most people (myself included) are still in the 2009 mindset where $7.5M gets you the best players in the league.
