    Absolutely not.  He was due a new deal at the end of the year and had threatened to sit out the next season unless his new contract was what he deserved.  The Blues didn't think he was that important to Hull, and could replace him with Janny.  They were wrong.

    O.K, thanks for the refresher. For some reason i thought he had signed a deal in the off season but when he saw what other players were getting after he had signed he wanted to rework the deal. Hull offered to pony up some of his salary but St. Louis management wouldn't budge. I guess i'm confusing his negotiations with someone else or maybe its just old age.

    Forget Chris Drury.  Move on.  We need a roster that wins the Cup, not our hearts.

    A fair point on the contracts.  Some guys play long enough, and well enough, that people forget their unethical negotiations.  I don't begrudge Wheeler for refusing to take a contract, although I think to patently refuse to play for the team you are drafted by is a shady tactic that undermines the parity of the game (see: Elway, Lindros, JD Drew).

    Back on point, I was even more curious about the non-hockey douchiness from Tkachuk.  Was he a bum off the ice?  I always naively imagined he would be a cool guy.  Got nothing to back that up though.

    [QUOTE]Anyone got other guys for that list?  Shoulda been a Bruin but isn't?
    Posted by Bookboy007[/QUOTE]

    Drury was definitely on that list for me.  Others include: Shane Doane, Jerome Iginla, Stevie Y, Rob Blake, and Peter Forsberg.  And being a UMaine fan I'll add Paul Kariya.

    It still takes two parties to make an agreement. Unethical needs to be defined.

    Re: Drury done...was it him PC was talking about

    I was pretty psyched when Tkachuck showed up at the 2004 World Series in Red Sox gear even though he played for a St Louis team... a true Boston kid.

    I wanted him as a B.

    I wanted Camaleri when he was with LA.  That didnt work out.

    I understood when the B's traded Dryden, but they knew better when they let Parent get away.  Ucch.

    [QUOTE]To Hades with Keith Tkachuk.  What a complete jerk.  If you sign a contract, you play it out.  He held Phoenix hostage more than once. I used to hang out with (name withheld), so I would see Keith periodically.  He was just as much of a jerk as a person as he was in his role of 50 goal scorer, 200 PIM guy, 100% unethical.
