Blues Trade For Tkachuk

By Brad Lee

From the Been There, Done That category, the Blues on Tuesday traded for Keith Tkahcuk. Well the rights to Keith Tkachuk since he's a free agent. They gave up a pick the Blues would have gotten if the Thrashers had re-signed him, which obviously wasn't going to happen. So in essence, the Thrashers trade the rights to a player they won't re-sign for a pick they weren't going to give up anyway. That's one way to get around the re-signing Doug Weight backlash from a year ago.

Here's the story. I guess what it really means is the Blues have every intention of bringing back Big Walt. Is that really a good idea? Discuss in the comments. Â
