NHL Rumors: Time period goes to be a problem for the St. Louis Blues and Ryan O’Reilly

Sportsnet: Elliotte Friedman on the 32 Ideas Podcast on Thursday on the St. Louis Blues and pending unrestricted free agent ahead Ryan O’Reilly.

“Properly Doug Armstrong met with the media on Wednesday and he didn’t give lots away. That’s type of typical of him. I don’t anyone would have anticipated it to be some other approach.

I do assume they are going to take a run at Ryan O’Reilly. What I don’t know is, Ryan O’Reilly goes to be 32. Now, the one factor about Ryan O’Reilly is, he takes care of himself. It’s going to be attention-grabbing.

It’s very clear that the Blues stated at this time limit, their priorities have been Thomas and Kyrou earlier than O’Reilly. They obtained these offers accomplished.

The final time the Blue had a significant free agent cornerstone participant, he ended up in Vegas, Pietrangelo. So Armstrong’s not afraid to grind. He’s represented by Newport, O’Reilly, which is identical group or company that had Pietrangelo, so that they’ll anticipate a grind.

I believe it’s going to be an interesting negotiation as a result of he’s nonetheless an important participant, it’s simply the age is, it’s a much bigger quantity. However, I believe St. Louis will take a run at him to see if they’ll keep away from the type of, the scenario it performed out with Pietrangelo.

We’ll see. The massive one right here goes to be time period. You already know, St. Louis was very cautious with David Perron, who was older than O’Reilly however they weren’t prepared to do a ton of time period there. So I believe that’s the largest query right here, is what time period are they prepared to do for O’Reilly and can he take into account that acceptable?

Marek: “What does the Nazem Kadri deal, if something, do to a Ryan O’Reilly negotiation?”

Friedman: “I don’t know if I can see St. Louis doing that.”

Marek: “When you’re Ryan O’Reilly.”

Friedman: “Look, if Ryan O’Reilly has an important yr this yr, and there’s no motive to imagine he gained’t, he’s going to say, that’s my market.”
