Further, Tyler is a Center, and the Blues need Wings. If the Blues bring in a Center (top 2 C) then I would expect that either Weight of Cajanek will be leaving in the deal. No point in having 3 great C, but only 2 wings that are proven.
Personally, I also think the Chicago will need a Center in return because Zhamanov left and now Arnason is looking to leave. They have some good young wingers but would lack pivot men.
Like I said, I would be willing to dump Weight, Cash, 3rd, for Arnason and Nashvilles 2nd in 04 or 05. Chicago gets a great 1st line Center and more experience. St. Louis will still shave payroll w/ eating the $$ and will get younger.
A counter offer from Chicago might be that they keep Arnason and give you a second rounder for Weight and his salary.
