[Leafs Links] Dreger: Alex Pietrangelo contract offers at $8+ million from St. Louis, Leafs & Golden Knights could be high on his shortlist in UFA

Darren Pang on the latest on Alex Pietrangelo (TSN1050)
On Leafs Lunch, long-time Blues commentator Darren Pang provided his latest feel for the Alex Pietrangelo negotiations with St. Louis management/ownership.

This is as discreet of a negotiation as I have seen in a while. Newport Management is tight to their vests. We had no word during the year whether or not there was conversation. I talked to Alex many times during the year about it, and he’d look at me and go pretty quiet. Everyone assumes he would take a hometown discount because his wife is from there and he’s got nieces and the three kids and a couple of homes there — one he uses as an investment property, and I think he’s got one in King City as well.
