Far too risky after the season he just had. The Kraken are spending big money though.

Massive overpayment for a guy with a known name.

If Seattle gets 19/20 Schwartz, then it'll be a good sign. If he plays like last season, it'll be DREADFUL.

Great for Seattle to add some stardom, but they may have overpaid a little bit.

Hopefully Seattle plays him the way he played from 16-19, he became pretty much a defensive forward towards his end with STL. We'll miss you Schwartzy.

Hard to tell whether or not this will be a good signing but for a new team like Seattle with a forward group that is far below average for the NHL (at least in terms of the top 6), this is more likely than not a good signing IMO.

What is Seattle doing? I thought they were trying to tank and then they go out and overpay a bunch of UFAs.

Schwartz is a solid middle 6 winger, but the Kraken spent way too much for him. I understand his addition but I don't get the contract they paid him. Seems like the Kraken are spending money just cuz to me...

I'll miss Schwartzy, but there was no way the Blues were keeping him.

Seattle, you better pray that this pays off. Schwartz is a talented winger and is a marquee player, but he is a very on/off sort of guy and has some injury concerns. If you get 2019-20 Schwartz, this is a good deal. But if last year wasn't a fluke, y'all are in trouble.

My wife is originally from STL and a big Blues fan. We were at the Blues/Wings game during the 17/18 season when he blocked that shot from Mike Green and basically exploded his ankle. The Blues were rolling in that game and up to that point in the season, but after he got hurt the wheels kinda fell off and they ended up missing the playoffs after dropping that final regular season game to the Avs.

That season was a microcosm of Schwartzy's time with STL. When he was healthy and on, he was the guy who drove the offense and helped finally get the Blues over the hump. But if he was inured or on a cold streak, the whole team seemed to suffer. It will be interesting to watch if that dynamic follows him to Seattle and who will be the play drive on offense for the Blues now. I'm betting they think Buch will fill that role in his absence.
