In what is probably the biggest deal that the Blues will make all day, the team calmed down a significant portion of their fanbase by re-signing forward Matt D'Agostini. They were unable to reach a deal with him before he became a UFA, which led to questions regarding how much money the Blues are actually willing to pay for a deal.
The contract is a two-year deal for the 25 year old worth $1.5 million for this season and $1.8 million next season. He had an explosive year last season, going from 2 goals and 2 assists and a −12 in 47 games in 2009-2010 to 21 goals and 25 assists in 82 games last year, complete with a +8 rating. He figures to be a top six player for the Blues, and TSN had him ranked as their 10th overall UFA forward going into the trade deadline day.
