Blues Trade For Tkachuk

New, comments

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
