<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>A_K</b></div><div>I think the reason for the stubbornness from the Blues' side of the Petro negotiations is because they like Parayko's age, cap hit, style of play, etc more too; in effect, they're not afraid to play chicken with Petro so the only way I can see Parayko getting plucked is with a massive package - Sandin / Robertson / picks - and even then, they may not want to meet Petro's demands so I really can't picture it working out for either side.



I don't know why so many people on this site act like Dermott, Kerfoot, Johnsson have zero value. I guess just because they'd be the pieces that the Leafs would have to move out for a big money signing, but tossing away a single draft pick outside the top-40 and getting a useful, relatively young player seems like a no-brainer to a lot of teams. IMO Leafs are accepting the L in those type of trades but netting an overall improvement. Just more evidence that draft picks are overrated I guess.</div></div>

<a href="/users/A_K" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@A_K</a> as always, you are a gem. Insights are always on point. I respect the Blues for wanting to go with Parayko over Pietrangelo. It's tough to let your captain walk away, especially so soon after he's delivered a cup....but he's not worth an expensive 8yr deal and they're wise to avoid it...especially with the players they have to step up and take his minutes.

Leafs are likely desperate enough to overpay for a guy who they hope can give 4-5 solid years and deal with the consequences on the final years of the deal. I'm desperate enough to let them.
