Fatso should have never come back to St. Louis a few years ago during free agency.

I'm surprised he didn't try Cup chasing during his last few years like all other players do.

Did he ever even play in the Conference Finals?

Good for him and the Blues, he doesn't bring anything to the team except for leadership.

meh...

Without a doubt a greatly talented player, but he always seemed to be a bit selfish and missing that special something.

So, Hall of Famer or not? On the plus side, 525 career goals and two 50 goal seasons whilst playing in the dead puck era with 5 all-star appearances. On the minus, poor playoff record and no individual awards...

Hard to say, good numbers but no individual or team accomplishments. Look at Adam Oates, 400+ more career points and more awards, the highest scoring player who is HHOF-eligible but not enshrined. By comparison, I'd say the Hall will likely not be in the card for Keith.

Answer: Yes, in 2001 with St. Louis, they lost 4-1 to Colorado, the year Bourque went cup-chasing.

Don't really have any opinion on him other than the fact that me and my friends would always make fun of his name while playing NHL games.

TCK had so much potential.. but wasted it chasing contracts to teams that never mattered.....

Sad but true.

I'll always remember Tkachuk as a Coyote, back when they had those hideous jerseys. Seamed like that guy would always burn us. I remember their top line was Tkachuk, Roenick and someone else. And they always played us really tough. He definitely had a great career. Too bad he had to finish it out with the crappy blues..

I'm glad he didn't get his name on the Cup...He was indeed a selfish jerk with the Jets/Coyotes; he became well known for re-negotiating his contract with a few years remaining.

I always hated him because he generally performed well against us, but I've got nothing against him. Played with grit, etc. etc.

I have nothing against him, he wont make the HoF, but that's OK, he was still a pretty good player.

I've never been a fan of Tkachuk and I honestly think the state of his face is sadder than his impending retirement. He had a few great years though.

A hard-nosed unafraid skilled guy who disn't think he was too important to throw down when the situation called for it - something every teamwould like to have and sadly something there just aren't that many of anymore. I could take him or leave him personally, but he's my favorite type of player, a true powerforward.
