1 Year contracts and that is all I hope we offer him. Because I'd rather not lock him down to 2-4 year contracts that lock him into a spot if any of our prospects need a spot. We are preparing for a team without him or Weight...I'd prefer to go without him so the reality of what this team will be will come sooner than later.
You mean sort of like the "kind act" the Blues did by paying him $21 million per playoff goal scored for us in 2003 and 2004? ($21 million to turn a 5-0 rout into a 6-0 rout in the game he scored).

Oh wait, we don't call him "Keith," we call him "Walt!" Of course he should come back!
