Rumour has it that Alex Pietrangelo, who hasn’t yet signed a new contract with the St. Louis Blues, may be looking at Toronto or Vegas, if he isn’t able to reach an agreement with the Blues. There’s only three weeks left before the defenseman would hit the market, and he’s indicated in recent interviews that there still hasn’t been much progress in the negotiations. With this in mind, here’s some reasons why the current Blues captain just might be headed north to join the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Reasons why Pietrangelo might be coming to Toronto:
- He’s from Ontario, so moving here would put him closer to friends and family
- Toronto’s training facilities are often brought up as a major perk of playing here
- Not to mention all the sponsorship deals and opportunities
- The Leafs are young, exciting, and really need a defenceman
Reasons why he might not be:
- We have no money :(
