Took a bit of a paycut to stay with the Blues.
I thought for sure he was going to go for the big bucks this offseason.
Hopefully Santo's re-signs in January!
I thought Steen would get a little less on a longer contract.
The last 4 years prior
to this season, Steen's scored at a 25 goal / 56 point pace. That's pushing $5M on it's own when you consider he's excellent defensively.
So....really St. Louis is gambling $800K/ year that the scoring exploits of this year are not a total fluke.
If he regresses, it's only 3 years on a guy who isn't even 30 yet
So, to me I think it's a pretty good signing....with upside of being an excellent signing.
