This is doubtful. The Jackets had a chance to claim him and didn't bite. Below is some speculation as to why.
The Jackets' decision not to claim Legace, a 10-year-veteran, came as a surprise to many. General manager Scott Howson would not comment on the matter.
It is believed that management discussed obtaining the goalie, who has a 13-9-2 record this season with a 3.18 goals-against average and an .885 save percentage. Among the possible reasons they passed: Legace, 36, was due to make $1.1 million the rest of the season and has squabbled publicly with Blues management.
