Blues set to announce Walt's re-signing
 
Quote:

The Blues want Keith Tkachuk back, Tkachuk wants to be back with the Blues and both sides may get their wish soon.

Tkachuk, 37, received a contract offer from the club this week and the two sides are closing in on a deal, one that could be done today. Tkachuk will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the month and has said he wants to finish his career as a Blue.

Blues President John Davidson said: "It's close ... we're trying to keep the phones going. We want to get another year out of Keith and he wants to stay in St. Louis. There's common ground there
."

Veteran forward Keith Tkachuk received a contract offer from the St. Louis Blues this week and negotiations are in the final stages on an expected one-year deal.

An announcement could be made as early as today.

Good deal for Tkachuk and St. Louis.....But I saw the headline and said, "Who the hell is Walt???"

I hated seeing him in Atlanta...The only team he needs to be on is St. Louis. It does not feel right to have someone who has dedicated almost his entire career to one organization to be in another sweater.

He's played over half of his career in the Jets/Coyotes organization.
