A little mid-summer hockey blogging: According to this article, the St. Louis Blues are considering trading Doug Weight to the Detroit Red Wings for University of Wisconsin alumnus Curtis Joseph and replacing him with Sergei Federov. This makes me happy, not least because Joseph was a member of the first Blues team I became a fan of, which featured him and Vince Riendeau as an outstanding goalie tandem as they overcame a 3-1 deficit to oust the Red Wings from the play-offs. Then the Blues could presumably trade Osgood for some help on defense. Incidentally, the same article said that if Patrick Roy wants to retract his retirement, all 30 NHL teams must give written approval. That seems kind of unfair...shouldn't there at least be a gentlemen's agreement among the clubs not to prevent people from playing if they decide they want to?
