Carolina might not offer Weekes the tender offer. The Blues could just sign him as a UFA. Why trade young, cheap, top 3 defenseman for him? It wouldn't make sense. Anyway, I'd rather the Blues get Garon, but I wouldn't even consider parting with Backman or Jackman for him.

As far as I'm concerned, Jackman can have no trade value. He can just stay in STL for his whole career. There is no one on the Carolina roster that I would trade for him.

I really doubt that Rutherford doesn't qualify Weekes. Losing him for nothing would make absolutely no sense. Don't forget that the guy (JR) waited a complete year to get rid of Irbe. He won't go out and lose a #1 goalie who's atleast top 15 and in his prime for nada, just won't happen.

That "poor season" was 23 goals and 58 pts. That was sub par, but not poor.

Weekes has been a better goalie than Osgood over the past 2 seasons by FAR.

If you wouldn't trade Jackman for Staal, O'Neill, Cole, or Vasicek i'd have to say I feel for you if you're ever GM of a team.

What does that have to do with his comment on Demitra.

I would trade him for Staal but there is no way I would trade him for O'Neill, Cole, or Vasicek.

I think Jackman's character and leadership are what make him an asset to the Blues that cannot be replaced. Staal may be a better player, but in my opinion Jackman will be more valuable to the team.

It has nothing to do with being attached to my players and everything to do with not wanting to give up a young defenseman that many feel are better than his counterpart that won the Calder for a goaltender that is not much better than what we already have.

I wouldn't expect much at all in return for Demitra and have never once said they should get anything... which is one of the reasons why I think they should keep him and trade Weight.

Why two seasons?

Perhaps because 2 seasons ago was Osgood's worse of his career?

Pretty convenient for your argument, huh?

Staal is the one one of those that I wouldn't laugh at but I'd still opt for Jackman because a) he's more proven and b) defensemen are more valuable than forwards.
