07:28 AM ET 08.05 | The clock ticks and, according to GM Doug Armstrong, "There's really nothing to report." The start of Blues training camp is less than six weeks away and defenseman Alex Pietrangelo, a restricted free agent, remains the team's last unsigned player. The Blues have waited deep into the summer to re-sign many of their own RFAs, but never this deep under [Armstrong]. ... [Adding] to the anxiety among fans is that despite dialogue between Armstrong and Pietrangelo's agent, Don Meehan of Newport Sports Management, no agreement is imminent. A breakthrough in negotiations is always possible, but with time slipping away, the potential of a holdout is also plausible. The last two NHL players to miss part of the regular season -- Montreal's P.K. Subban and Colorado's Ryan O'Reilly -- are represented by Newport.

Get this deal done. You don't want this to be a distraction when training camp opens.
