The Axeman takes a swing at Heatley, Markstrom and some of the latest RFA signings…

****

So Jaden Schwartz does the Blues a solid and signs a team friendly, two-year deal for an average of $2.35M.

Axeman's Grind

Coming off a 25 goal campaign, he should have got more but I think he saw the writing on the wall as far as the Blues cap situation goes. There just isn't a lot of room there today and if he wants to get into camp and play, this deal works for both. Looking at the Blues overall salary situation, there doesn't seem to be a lot coming off the books in two years either. David Backes has two years left on his current deal but I don't see them letting him go anywhere. Barrett Jackman has one year left on his deal and with Tarasenko on the last year of his ELC, I can see Jackman being a casualty next season to be able to sign Tarasenko.
