I’m a big fan of Pietrangelo. I wouldn’t complain if Elmer signed him but I’d be concerned about the salary cap moving forward. He’s a game changer no doubt about it.

Is there a team in the NHL who can afford Pietrangelo’s next contract? Doyle is gay.

Alex wants the money and a chance to win again, the Canucks can offer him that, once they go italian mafia style on eriksson to move him out somehow.

Just gotta learn from the Scott Niedermayer situation from 2005:
"I just felt I wanted to have new challenges in life," Niedermayer said. "Do different things, try different things."

"I've been in New Jersey for a long time - a lot of memories - and to make a decision like this is difficult to do," he said.

"We have tremendous respect for him," Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "We did have a conversation last night when he told me of his decision and I'm sure you can all imagine it was a difficult conversation for all parties.
And burke got his bro Rob in anaheim prior, does alex have a bro/cuzzin to sign? ha
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Brown Lizzy we do not have the 9 million cap space to enter this dance party. It’s a pipe dream.
You make the room for an AP level asset.

So you’re walking on all three UFA to sign AP? So you’re down a top 6 winger, a top 10 goalie and a top 4 RH D for one 30 year old guy. Depth matter man... and I’m a big fan of this player. The big stumbling block to Pietrangelo is Tyler Myers. You don’t want to be paying 25 million to three D long term....Hughes- 10, Petro 9, Myers 6. Add in 10 for Petey, 7.5 to Boeser and then you have to think long term about Horvat/Miller. Not to mention Thatcher if he’s any good will want to get paid.
I dunno Doyle but this opportunity never happens. Bold moves sometimes turn out.

Personally i would let Marky and Toffy walk then fill those rolls affordably to add a difference maker like AP
Sure it happens. Gillis had a chance to go after Weber, but he shit his pants and wouldn't pull the trigger on anything.

Not true. Weber was RFA. Nashville made it clear they would match ANY offer. Weber wanted to come to Vancouver. Gillis told him the way to do was to sign an offer sheet for one year. Nashville would match and the following year he would be UFA and the Canucks would sign him. The problem was the CBA was expiring and agents were concerned about potential changes that would affect signings. His agent wanted a huge offer that would give him his pot of gold. Philly signed him to an offer sheet. Nashville matched. Gillis didn't fuck this one up.

Maybe the Blues will end up resigning him after he's checked out the market.

The Score; https://www.thescore.com/nhl/news/2024037
Alex Pietrangelo's days with the St. Louis Blues appear to be over.

The Blues have broken off contract talks with the pending unrestricted free-agent rearguard and have advised the 30-year-old to pursue free agency in October, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.

Pietrangelo, whose previous deal carried an annual cap hit of $6.5 million, is one of the league's top blue-liners and is due for a big payday after helping the Blues capture the Stanley Cup in 2019 and putting together a career campaign in 2019-20.

St. Louis currently has just $5.15 million in projected cap space for next season, according to CapFriendly.

Pietrangelo admitted earlier this week that the lack of a new deal with the Blues was "a little disappointing." On Friday, the 6-foot-3 blue-liner said contract talks hadn't gone the way he wanted, per Dreger.

The Blues' current offer apparently carries an average annual value of $7.7 million, but Pietrangelo has been asked to accept the proposal without knowing the structure of the deal, according to The Athletic's Jeremy Rutherford.

Pietrangelo recorded a personal-best 16 goals this season and was on pace to crack the 60-point mark over 82 games for the first time in his career. The Ontario native ranks third in goals (58) and eighth in points (195) among all NHL defensemen over the past four campaigns.

Drafted by the Blues with the fourth overall pick in 2008, Pietrangelo has spent his entire 12-year career in St. Louis.

So the Penguins "leaked" that they intend on signing Tanev if he hits free agency.

Fuckers.

This is tampering and they should owe the canucks a 2nd for it.

The Pittsburgh Penguins may try to add a second Tanev brother to the fold this offseason.

Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford is expected to pursue Vancouver Canucks defenseman Christopher Tanev by attempting to shed enough cap space to sign him, league and team sources told The Athletic's Rob Rossi and Josh Yohe. Pittsburgh has reportedly made adding a right-shooting blue-liner a priority.

Rutherford isn't opposed to offering the rearguard a five-year contract that would last as long as the pact he agreed to with Tanev's younger brother, Brandon, a team source told Rossi and Yohe.

The elder Tanev, who will turn 31 in December, is a pending unrestricted free agent. The 2019-20 campaign was the final season of the five-year, $22.25-million deal he inked with the Canucks in 2015. That agreement carried a $4.45-million cap hit, and the defenseman is reportedly seeking a raise. However, the Penguins would prefer not to sign off on a deal with a cap hit over $5 million.

Tanev said in June that he'd love to play his whole career with Vancouver. He's spent all 10 of his NHL campaigns with the Canucks, who signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2010.

The Penguins reeled in Brandon Tanev with a six-year, $21-million contract in July 2019. The 28-year-old forward posted 11 goals and 25 points in his first campaign with the club.

Yep. That's tampering (so long as there is a legitimate sourcing behind the article). Jimmy got slapped for similar a few years back. You can bet that if there is anything to this the Canucks are going to go after the league to enforce similarly on the Pens.

Pittsburgh has also cleared some salary space and figures to be active in free agency. While their third line forward group still has more questions than answers, the same could be said about their third pair defense as well. Per Josh Yohe and Rob Rossi at The Athletic,

an answer could come in the form of free-agent-to-be from Vancouver, Chris Tanev.
sounds like gossip.

Except that Rutherford is apparently quoted as willing to offer up to 5 years and give him a raise.

No this is very close to tampering

Not even gossip. Sounds like Hoegler from the Canucks Way style of ramblings and dreamings when there is copy to be printed and no stories to write. Or, at best, this is a link to a link that wants you to buy a subscription to yet another hockey site. There is a whole topic called "Mickey's thread full of links" I bet this would fit in there quite nicely.

Now, if this was to report on an actual signing or trade, then you would be in the right sandbox.
The Cup is soooooo ours!!!!!!!
