It's been reported that Columbus might also be interested. They need a center desperately

1) This comes from Strickland, who's known for being a Blues insider well before hockeybuzz.

2) It's Tkachuk's wish list, not the other way around. I can't see Boston going after him either, but that doesn't mean Keith wouldn't want to play there.

How do you figure? Sturm is out for the year so there is a glaring hole at LW.

good job on missing the point there, buddy.

What's next? You're gonna say that ''No way Keith Tkachuk gets traded to 6 different team at the deadline, that's like sooo impossible, dude!!1!''

IT'S HIS WISHLIST

get off the hate eklund bandwagon and realize this rumor is from Andy Strickland who is very well connected within the Blues organization.

You don't want him for a center. He does an adequate job there but he is a drastically better player when lined up at LW.

Badabing! The Rangers will win the Tkachuk sweepstakes!!!

So it's Rangers are BUST!
Sounds good to me!

Just because Detroit has shown no interest (and isn't a good fit at all from Detroit's end of it) doesn't mean Tkachuk wouldn't be willing to go there.
Detroit had interest in Tkachuk 2 years back before he was traded to Atlanta... They actually were close to a deal that would send him there, close enough that they had a Tkachuk jersey already made when they were in Phoenix. He hasn't changed much as a player over the span of two years, so I don't see why Ken Holland wouldn't still be interested in him, albeit, at the right price.

He accept a trade to go there in the first place. Also, he is much more valuable on the wing, but he still does a decent job at the center position (just not as many goals or physical presence).

Like someone said it's all about who wants Walt out of that list. If those are the teams he's willing to waive his NTC for. I could see SJ, or Boston

Could hometown trump cup favorite? Also, would he sign again with the blues? I expect 1-2 years left max after this year left in his career.

Really? The Pens don't need a gritty goal-scorer who happens to be one of the best players in front of the net in the league for their anemic PP? They reject players solely on the basis of "not being Marian Hossa"?

That's news to me. And the entire Pens fanbase.

1. Boston: he would fit in great with that team, and definitely not slow him down.
2. Rangers: could use him, and he would help their offense score more goals. oh, and he's much better than shanny at this point in their careers...
3. Capitals: they don't need him? ok, that may or may not be true, but who wouldn't want him if the price is right?
4. Penguins: they need a top-six winger who can put pucks in the net. Tkachuk seems like a good fit for that team.
5. Detroit: you're right. but again, wouldn't he make them that better?
6. San Jose: look above at Detroit.

All in all, Keith Tkachuk would bring leadership, goal scoring ability, physicality, and could potentially enhance the power play of whoever he would be acquired by.

Not that I'd particularly mind him on SJ with no cap issues but:

1) No cap room, period

2) We don't have prospects to trade, unless they seriously would take guys like Mcginn, Staubitz, Cavanaugh, etc...

3) No way SJ 'rents' anyone this season, no chance. DW has been burned 3 times in a row (Bell, Guerin, Campbell) he won't (has stated this) do it again. With a new contract, perhaps, but then see above.

All that aside, I like Kieth, being American born, physical, etc.

Prediction: San Jose and Detroit don't touch him with a 100 foot pole. I think Doug Wilson knows better than to trade for rentals with a questionable playoff history after the Bill Guerin disaster. (I stand by my claim that Christian Ehrhoff's best slapshot ever was the one that knocked Bill Guerin out of the SJ-Detroit series).

Everyone should read this post before spouting off the usual cliches about Tkachuk being a physical goal scorer who brings experience and leadership, yada yada yada.

The only teams that should be even remotely interested in acquiring him are ones that are desperate to make the playoffs in order to generate some buzz, need that extra push in the regular season, and don't really care how well they do once they make it (basically, like when Atlanta traded for him, but without giving up a king's random for peasant quality). But he's probably not interested in going to any of those teams anyway.

Well, no - if they just take Tkachuk on straight up, they don't. If they trade Filppula for Tkachuk, they do.

I think this is an HF record - we went 26 posts before someone alluded to Tkachuk overeating / being fat.

I said the same thing about Bill Guerin in 2007, knowing full well that someone was still going to give a 1st for him. Lo and behold, San Jose did. If Guerin didn't have a Cup in New Jersey at the start of his career, he'd be Tkachuk II wrt the playoffs - and actually, Guerin is worse in the postseason even after considering his time in New Jersey.

Funny how he left out a few years in trying to make his point.

3 in 7 games as a rookie in 91-92, 4 in 6 games in 92-93, 6 in 7 games in 96-97, 3 in 6 in 97-98, 5 in 10 in 2001-02.

Gee all of a sudden theres a few good scoring years in there isnt there? Hes had afew good years on decent teams, hes had a few bad year on decent teams.

But hey its always one guys fault the team fails right?

I can't tell you how many times I've heard it's Tkachuk's fault that the Thrashers were swept by the Rangers, even though
-- Tkachuk had as many points in that series (3) as Atlanta's four leading scorers in the regular season [Ilya Kovalchuk, Marian Hossa, Slava Kozlov, and Scott Mellanby] did combined,
-- Tkachuk had as many goals in that series (1) as Kovalchuk, Hossa, Kozlov, Mellanby, Jon Sim, and Bobby Holik did combined,
-- Tkachuk was never on the ice for a goal against and was even a +2, while Hossa and Kozlov were each -6 in the series,
-- Tkachuk's 12 PIM's were from a misconduct [when Kovalchuk got into it with Avery] and a minor [which the Thrashers killed off]

Yep ... the Thrashers getting swept that year was all Tkachuk's fault. That's not to say he didn't show up in other years ... but in 2007 he was far from the reason that Atlanta got routed in four.

Yep, you are right. And this is the year Tkachoke is going to have one of those few "good" playoff years. So hurry up and give up your 1st and 2nd round pick for him.

Yeahhhhhh, I believe he has scored 515 goals and 500 assists for a total of 1015 points in the NHL. Interesting... I also believe that he has a NTC in his current contract, so YES he can have a "list" of teams he would accept a trade to. You sound completely idiotic to be quite honest. Oh, one more thing, he is a potential hall of famer...

If by "good enough" you mean "has a NTC", then yes. So is PJ Axelsson. And I think Keith is still plenty talented. I'd love him and his 10 PPG in a Bruins sweater, parked in front of the net instead of Axe. But hey, thats just me.

Git 'er done Chiarelli!
