No offer for Tkachuk

Quote:
GM Don Waddell says that the Thrashers won't be offering forward Keith Tkachuk a contract before the July 1st deadline. After that the Thrashers lose exclusive negotiating rights to the winger, who will be an unrestricted free agent. Waddell said that he thought Tkachuk was a good fit in Atlanta and wasn't against doing some negotiating after July 1. "I won't rule anything out," he said. - Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Per TSN "Ice Chips"

Wait. So he liked the way Keith looked. And won't rule out signing him after July 1st.

But he's not offering BEFORE July 1st? I guess he feels that Keith is asking too much and will likely not get any significant offers in July so he could get him at a discount price?

Just weird to announce that in a paper or a media outlet...

Maybe it's a way to get around giving up a 2008 first rounder to St. Louis if they signed him before July 1st.

Ahhh, I didn't even realize that they had that option. But does that only mean that he had to sign before July 1st or is it if he signs at all?

I was under the impression that the Blues got the pick if Atlanta resigned him, irregardless of when he was signed.

That is correct, so Atlanta won't sign him.
