Doug Weight Available…. Any Takers?
Although he has a no-trade clause, with the Blues in last place Doug Weight may be willing to waive it to go to a better team… but at $5.7 million per season….On an internet radio show at bcmonsters.com, The author of Spectors Hockey talked of a Doug Weight trade rumor first reported in the Ottawa Sun by Bruce Garrioch.
Colombus once again has been linked to this trade, as it seems (by the media at least) that they are seriously interested in a scoring centre.
It was also reported on Spectorhockey.tripod.com that the blues were interested in Biron. Could there be a deal to be made between those two teams? Well Buffalo does have the cap space to make a trade for Weight, but I’m fairly certain they have a set payroll in place which they don’t want to exceed, (somewhere around $30 million.)
Just something to keep an eye on.
