Any team interested in trading for Cousins would have to cross its fingers that the quarterback would be fine playing for anything less than Andreas Martinsen Jersey $34.5 million.

Matthew Stafford of the Detroit Lions currently leads the league with an average salary of $27 million. Cousins will almost certainly eclipse that, but anything over $30 million per year is in an entirely different stratosphere of pay. Maybe a team is willing to pay an eye-popping amount, but more than $34.5 million?!

Essentially, Washington giving Cousins the franchise tag could mean the team is stuck with a quarterback it doesn’t want. And he’d be a quarterback who doesn’t have much trade value because teams probably won’t be jumping through hoops for a ridiculously expensive one-year loaner who’s set to hit free agency in 2019.

Ivan Barbashev and Vladimir Tarasenko had the goals for the Blues, who have lost a season-high four straight.

St. Louis coach Mike Yeo was not happy with his team’s performance.

I didn’t think we played well, Yeo said. Desperation time was a while ago. This is where pride has to come in. We have to make sure we stop the bleeding and we have to start building confidence in the game that we’re playing.

With his three points, Barzal has a team-leading 65 and a 14-point lead over Brock Boeser of the Vancouver Canucks in the NHL’s rookie scoring race.

Barzal has eight games with three or more points this season, one shy of Bryan Trottier’s franchise rookie record.

It’s unfortunate we couldn’t score (in overtime). It’s unfortunate to lose that extra point, Barzal said.

We weren’t shy to push the pace early. (Clutterbuck) and (Casey Cizikas) finishing checks early kind of set the tone for the rest of us. I thought we played a pretty good game.
