It's no real big surprise after the St. Louis Blues traded to have Keith Tkachuk back in the fold that they'd sign him as well. Tkachuk received a 2-year deal worth $8 million to come back and don the Blues' new uniform and re-unite him with Doug Weight.
Last season, Tkachuk was not very dominating when it came to his play. He certainly wasn't the top 30 kind of player he was only a few short years ago. With injuries and poor teams in St. Louis and a poor fit in Atlanta, Tkachuk hasn't had a great deal of chances to redeem himself. I don't see it happening again this year... if you can hold off on taking him until a little bit later in your draft, you'll probably think of him as a bargain.
When did you ever think you'd ever hear or see "bargain" and "Keith Tkachuk" in the same thought?
