07:25 AM ET 07.09 | On the upside, Derek Roy brings a good deal of talent to the Blues, but he won't come cheap. [Roy] has agreed in principle to a one-year, $4 million contract with the Blues. The deal is pending a physical, which is scheduled for Wednesday. ... With Roy's signing, the Blues have a payroll of $56.4 million, which leaves them approximately $8 million under the NHL salary cap ($64.3 million). The club still has restricted free agents Alex Pietrangelo, Chris Stewart and Jake Allen to sign. ... "I think we're going to be able to get everyone under the umbrella," [Doug Armstrong] said, "and if need be, we have very valuable pieces -- if we have to move players, that's not going to be an issue finding a home for them."

Haven't you heard? Milan Hejduk refuses to sign with anyone but the Leafs.

You took Luke Schenn instead.

Sorry, how many banners hanging in the rink there?Let Alex come home. He wants it.

Touche'

I guess you aren't impressed by the President's Trophy Banner, huh...? :o)

Alex needs to stay a Blue, though. He's too good to let him walk.

Is this the quote that leads you to that conclusion?

"I think we're going to be able to get everyone under the umbrella."

Unfortunately, you guys are the only team whose futility matches the Leafs'.I think STL's got more than enough space to finagle the two in. Which sucks, because I would really really like for them to consider a 1-for-1 Phaneuf for Pietrangelo swap.

Agreed. I'd be pretty surprised if AP ended up anywhere else.

Strange bedfellows?
