Weight Question

In the Isles-Blues rumor thread it was said that if the Blues wanted to trim payroll they would try and move Doug Weight and/or Keith Tkachuk before Demitra. My question is, what would the Blues be looking for in return for Weight? Not just from the Rangers, but in general(another center, prospects, picks)

I am sure a handful of teams would be very interested in Weight in the off-season.

A young defenseman would be in the package imo. Big Mac may be done. Baron isn't far off and neither is Finley. They need a good young d-man to come in and replace those guys.

Weight has a no trade clause. Last time he was traded he listed STL or DET as acceptable destinations. So, unless Pleau is trying to lose his job and trades him to DET, he won't be going anywhere. Tkachuk also has a no-trade clause.

that was like 3 years ago, so maybe he has changed his mind on some places.

just for ***** and giggles, could some blues fans help me on this?

I honestly cannot even answer the question. If the Blues traded Weight they'd need to get in return a younger, cheaper version of Weight... which is obviously not going to happen. That is why if they traded someone it would be Demitra. The Blues already have the younger, cheaper version of him in Cajanek. So, if they were to trade Demitra they'd probably be looking for Hecht type players, young defensemen, 3rd line centers.

LOL... I know he's gotten better, but I want no part of Reasoner.
