Term is meh (4 years would be better) but the AAV is great. Solid deal there by STL.

A bit mad Toronto didn't pull this off. 4.5 for Saad is a bargin.

Seven goals in ten playoff games will get you $4.5 million. That makes sense.

Great deal for them. They needed someone to help replace Schwartzy's presence on the wing

Would much rather have him over Hoffman at the same price.

Don't be surprised if Vlad isn't moved this offseason, trading him away only helps the blues clear cap space but many of the free agents that had the skills he had have already been signed. Vlad's value is low because of cap hit and injury so don't be supposed if the blues hold onto tarasenko.

Blues with a great offseason. Not easy to add two play driving top 6 wingers while getting slightly younger

IMO this is the steal of the year, like Toffoli last year. I was expecting a Gallagher style contract.

STL get the W, MTL get the L with Hoffman for the same caphit...

Really good pick-up for the Blues, especially since a lot of other teams were probably looking at him.

They'll be buying him out at end of year three. Better win now!

Very good sign, specially because of the AAV. He's Hoffman replacement and he can play even better. I wish Pens could sign him. But I knew it'd be impossible, because of the salary cap issues.

Term is a tad risky, but that AAV is a steal.

Saad is an efficient offense-driving 2nd-line winger with good 5v5 metrics, which is something the Blues needed after they let Schwartz and Hoffman walk.

Doug Armstrong is a literal wizard. Change my mind.
