I actually even thought the Tkachuk deal was fair at one point
He had shown flashes of brilliance in STL and still does. Unfortunate for him he goes to teams that are pretty much set at 1-2 and doesnt get a chance to show what he can fully do. Hes big and can skate. You put him in a situation like savard or morrison and hes putting up 80+ a year. Hes still young enough that he might get a chance in a situation like that.
