St. Louis Blues General Manager Doug Armstrong says he isn't concerned with Jaden Schwartz missing 10 days of training camp.

Schwartz and the Blues agreed to a new contract on Saturday, but Armstrong is confident that the young forward will be able to catch up to the rest of his teammates. "Training camp’s a very important part of the season and if it wasn’t important, we’d have everybody start Monday," said GM Doug Armstrong. "I think he’s going to be behind the rest of the group. The good thing is he’s been training hard and he’s young, so I think he’ll be able to physically catch up. We have new players on the team that he doesn’t know, so he’ll have to take a crash course into how they play." Schwartz took a big step forward last season registering 25 goals and 56 points in 80 games last season. Look for his offensive production to keep climbing going forward.

Jaden Schwartz will be paid $2 million in his first year of his new two-year contract.

He will make $2.7 million in the second year. It’s not uncommon for a deal to be structured this way for a restricted free agent who is already very good and should only get better. It helps to maximize Schwartz's next contract when he has arbitration rights, presuming he continues to build on an impressive 25-goal, 56-point season.

The St. Louis Blues signed Jaden Schwartz to a two-year deal reportedly worth $4.7 million on Saturday.

If Schwartz meets or exceeds his 25-goal, 56-point totals from 2013-14, this is a huge steal for the deep and diverse Blues attack. The good news is that this brief contract gives Schwartz plenty of motivation to max out his totals to get a bigger deal once he "crosses this bridge." Schwartz has potential to break out even more in 2014-15, so he's worth a deep draft pick in any format.

There is breaking news out of St. Louis that Jaden Schwartz and the Blues are close to finalizing a contract.

Schwartz, a restricted free agent, had been holding out and was not with the Blues for the first 10 days of training camp. It is not known if this is a long-term or short-term deal, but in any case, it looks as if something will be finalized by the end of the day. Stay tuned for further details.

Jaden Schwartz still doesn't have a contract with the Blues, so he won't be in attendance for the start of training camp.

"We've had dialogue recently," Blues GM Doug Armstrong said. "But I don't know when he's going to be here. He's not here today, I don't expect him here tomorrow. And we're just going to now concentrate on the players that are here, try and find some synergy with the centermen that are in camp with some wingers and when Jaden reports, when we get a contract done with him, he can work his way back into that group. But right now it's focus on the guys that are here." No future talks are scheduled, but Armstrong doesn't want to provide another update on the situation until the team is able to announce a new deal.

Jaden Schwartz and the St. Louis Blues still have a significant gap to overcome in contract talks.

"I would characterize it as the discussions are ongoing," said Schwartz's agent, Wade Arnott. "We've had lengthy discussions over the past few weeks with (Blues general manager) Doug Armstrong regarding Jaden's situation. We remain significantly apart on our respective positions at this point." Armstrong confirmed that there's a "gap in the level of compensation." Both sides have agreed that a bridge contract is the likely path, but money is the issue here. The Blues want to see more from him before investing heavily in his abilities, while Schwartz's camp feels he proved a lot with an impressive year in 2013-14. Training camp is just two weeks away from opening.

Jaden Schwartz hopes to become an integral piece of the St. Louis Blues' future.

"I want to be a big part of this team. I played pretty well this season," he said. "There's always things you can improve on and things I can learn. I was pretty happy with the way the the regular season went. As the season went on, I felt like my role got bigger and I kind of wanted to keep that momentum going into next year." The 21-year-old forward amassed 25 goals and 56 points in 80 games. He also added three points in six playoff matches. Schwartz has great offensive and defensive instincts and he should continue to develop his game next year.
