Sather talks to me about O'Brien, and Pleau asks if I want to revisit the Tkachuk deal and make it bigger. We decide it's not going to work, but we are interested in Bill Guerin. Sather tells me he's got a good offer for Aaron Ward from another team.
From Burke. Put it this way, this was well before he was sat out. Ward was on his way out beforehand. I think he was sat out as a precaution to injury because they knew they were going to trade him. It could have been the Jagr thing, but I think Sather saw a good offer for a defenseman who's been struggling all year. So he bit.
