Doug Weight really helped out the Blues the year he came here. They ended up getting Patrick Berglund and others out of a rental deal and then Doug signed right back with them. Tcachuk has done the same thing for the Blues. That is what guys do when they truly love an organization.
Whitney already helped the future of the franchise by quickly re-signing along with a home town discount after a career year when he got 80+ points while only missing one game. His NMC was part of the reward and well-deserved. It would be far from a d-bag move he opted not to waive it.

Weight left to win a Cup and Whitney has one. That's a huge difference you are overlooking.
