Hmm, I have a hard time with that. One, Tkaczuk clearly doesn't want to be in the Blues organization; he's made that pretty clear by his actions. Two, he's taking a huge risk of getting injured while not under contract. There's very little chance of impressing Pleau when you don't want to be here anyway as far as I'm concerned and Pleau has no reason to move from the qualifying offer either. I also thought that's why they bring in guys on PTO and ATO's as well. Holdouts rarely come to camp without a deal in place, especially a guy with Tkaczuk's history with the Blues in the background.
