<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>suburbanrobot</b></div><div>a) I don't think Petro signs for 9.5 for 6, b) DA has been prioritizing low AAV over term. Look at the Schenn deal as an example. Extend guys beyond their prime years to keep low AAV to keep the band together and hunt for additional championships while the window is open.

100% agreed on moving Bozak if it is possible and necesasry. I don't think Dunn takes the money/term you are proposing.

Blais will return more value and is kind of an odd man out with the current roster. He's an arb-eligible RFA so he'll get a lot more than $1MM, probably closer to $1.75-$2.25. Too rich for the Blues if extending Petro. Sure I'd be ecstatic to keep him for a mil but you aren't being realistic.

Fair enough. I picked Montreal mostly because they have the Blues 2nd rounder from this year so the synergy was nice. The actual team matters less than the concept -- trading Allen for some draft capital and to free up space to sign Petro.</div></div>

Yeah I get what you are saying I just think Petro is a little different situation considering he is already 30. Getting him signed is a positive no matter what as he will still be a top RHD for at least 3 more years.

Also I do think if Dunn agrees to a 1 or 2 year deal you can get him at under 3 mil because of how low the term is. Basically allowing him to improve his point totals more to cash in big when that deal is up.

With Blais I guess I do not know exactly how all the RFA stuff works but just know he has not done anything to leverage getting more than Barbashev or Sanford did. Which is why i think 1-1.5 is doable.
