I may be wrong, but I figured they'd trade Weight and keep Tkachuk. Without Tkachuk, they have nothing. On the other hand, didn't I read recently that the Blues may be bought again? Perhaps the old owners would want to shed salary to increase attractiveness.

Anyways, it might take Brown to get him. I don't think they would give up their top player for less than a top young player. You're right that that salary is a monster, though. FYI, Tkachuk signed a 5-year deal in 2002, so he's under contract for one more year after this. I'm going to be ducking tomatoes for this, but having Tkachuk for next season might entice JR to sign a cheap deal (like for $1M) to have play another year with his old linemate.
