Maroon @ 1/1.75 is a very good signing for St Louis.

1st line, 3rd line, whatever. That’s a pretty sweet deal for the Blues.

Flames were in on him July 1st. I kind of thought at that price they might circle back and offer him term. In hindsight, I expect the real benefit of his agency change will come with an extension in January.

Stang: As in the agent said "I can't let you do this, thats too low?"

Maybe. I never thought of it from that angle! That Maroon maybe insisted.

Yeah, I don't know. Maybe a possibility.

Agent says no theres way better deals

Maroon says no I'll take this to be at home.

Yeah, agents get a cut of the contract, so perhaps his agent pushed it too far and insisted he go for the better contracts.

Regardless, tough to blame a guy for family loyalty. Especially making over a million dollars.

Maybe his previous agent lost him that deal by trying to get him a better deal somewhere else and maybe even trying to leverage those for a better deal with St. Louis?

I have a feeling that no way in heck he'd have signed that low for ANY other team. no way calgary could have got him for that
