07:31 AM ET 08.23 | Hockey is in Alex Pietrangelo's near future -- just not with the Blues. [Pietrangelo] is scheduled to be one of 47 NHL players traveling to Calgary for Team Canada's Olympic orientation camp, which runs Sunday through Wednesday. Meanwhile, there is no update regarding contract negotiations. ... [Blues GM] Doug Armstrong and Pietrangelo's agent, Don Meehan of Newport Sports Management, have been in communication the past several months, but have not been able to come to agreement on an extension. "Nothing really to report to you concerning Alex's contractual status," Meehan wrote in an email to the Post-Dispatch Thursday afternoon. "Our discussions are ongoing with Doug." Pietrangelo's asking price is believed to be close to $7 million per season. The Blues apparently aren't willing to eclipse $6 million.

Maybe the Wild will pay him $8 million?

I don't think he has $8M stats.

"Pietrangelo's asking price is believed to be close to $7 million per season."

Who does he think he is? Ryan Suter?

"I don't think he has $8M stats."

Since when does that matter?

BTW, I guess the Caps have been missing Semin so much, they went and signed Grabovski to a one-year $3 Miilion deal.

I hope they reach an agreement soon. I don't want this to be a distraction too long.

I expect a 1 year bridge to get past the low cap this year
