Talk to Doug "39 shackles" Weight. Weight said he'd only go to either Detroit and St. Louis. Edmonton wanted to trade him to the Islanders but Weight blocked the trade to the Islanders. They could have had that draft pick as part of the trade. He then blocked Demitra coming to Edmonton from St. Louis. Tell me who made Weight GM of the Blues.
Isles wanted Weight.Then Weight gave an interview saying he wanted to win the Stanley Cup,he wanted to play for a contender.
Bottom feeding Isles knew they wouldn't be able to get the Weight signed longterm.
